My computer simply freezes OR restarts
whenever its playing a movie , a simple game,or even a flash document.



Recently i have disabled all the graphic acceleration including direct x by right clicking..in desktop>properties>settings>advance>troubleshoot>hardware acceleration none.Now the computer is totally stable no freezing But it is a pain watching a video ,etc ,without direct x.Enabling the hardware acceleration again facing the same problem . Shall i put a external graphic card after disabling on-board graphic ,will it by pass the inbuilt gpu problem? OR Replace the mother board


Please Help What TO do??

Configuration

running latest driver ,latest xp update,normal temperature everything else is fine

>> xfx nvdia mother board 603i/7100
>> Intel E8400 processor

I wouldn't replace the motherboard before trying a graphics card. How much memory is in there?

That probably isn't enough memory to do what you want.

I'd add more memory too.

Also, could it be an "over heating" issue?
