:flowers:
I just got a ViewSonic VX922 Flat Pannel monitor.
The issue is that now I cannot play NFSU anymore.
The game starts, but before I can do anything more, the PC reboots...
I have a P4 2.8 GHZ, 1 G RAM
The vid card is ATI Rad. 9800 Pro.
This is what I have done to try to resolve the issue:
I have updated the ATI drivers
Updated the monitor driver
Updated the Bios for the MB
Played with the resolution settings.
Everytime I try to start the game the PC reboots.

Any Thoughts as to what might be the issue.

PS: I had a 21" CRT before this and on that everything worked OK before....
:thumbsup:

Could always try reinstalling the game. Just be sure to save your game profile or savegames.

Does NFSU have a configuration program to set up the video, audio, etc. You may have to reconfigure the video for the game before starting it up. ESPECIALLY now that you have an LCD (assuming it's LCD) because LCDs usually have limited resolution or native resolution. There's also the refresh rate to check out. LCDs are usually locked in on only one refresh rate (mine's at 60 hertz). I think it's something like "synchronize refresh rate" or "default monitor refresh rate." I wrestled with refresh rate issues when I played Half-Life before I figured it out.

Hope that helps.
