The graphics card that i recently installed is the geforce 7900gs. When I play games such as counter strike or condition zero, the entire game freezes up and my computer restarts. I saw an error message once that said that my driver application stopped working.

The most recent version is 84.63 but it didn't work for me. the error message that i received was: The Nvidia Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.
The driver that comes with the cd is 91.47. I have no idea what i should do. please help

'Recently Installed'? Does that mean you have a older one? Try the old one if you have.

I am still playing that game too, and I'm using my built-in graphics card. The computer I have it on is probably slower than yours.

The only problem I have (on the Italy board) is that the game moves frame-by-frame. But I think that's because I don't have it installed on one of my faster computers.

And the computer I'm playing it on is a 750MHz with 450+ megs RAM. Everything is factory, from about 4 or so years ago.

But if it's giving you problems, you should at least take it out and try to play it that way. If you insist on using that card your bought, reinstall it over again, which means you will need to take the card back out after you uninstall the drivers for it, then use a registry cleaner, then reboot. After you reboot, and everything seems ok, power it off and go through the installation of the card and drivers over again.

Maybe the new card just doesn't suit your computer.

Could you please post your computer specs? One thing that you can try doing is to use older drivers for the gfx card you just purchased. You could also try using the omega drivers, it may or may not help.

Ensure that you have Direct X v9.0c installed on your machine. You can download it from HERE. If you already have it installed, it should install over it with no issues. :thumbsup:

Well....that card is more than enough to run the game. Same for the amount of ram that you have along with your processor.

This leaves the power supply unit (psu). Do you know what make/model it is? If I had to guess, I'd say that once you start playing a game and the 7900gs starts taxing the psu, that the psu can't handle the load it's under and causes the system to reboot to prevent damage to anything.

Please post back with any information that you might have on your psu so that I can try to look up the specs on it. :thumbsup:

Yea, does look like a power issue. The computer was probably built for the inbuilt graphics and upgrading having the new Card obviously demands more power then the P.C was built for.
Have you got any more games that you play?
