Update the display driver? Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

See how it goes.

The computer seems to be very old.
Code:
BiosVersion = ASUS M2A-VM ACPI BIOS Revision 1604
BiosReleaseDate = 12/19/2007

It would really be worthy to buy a new system, if you can. With the technical advancements, the good things become obsolete gradually, and they dont work very good with new hardware or software.

Hi again,
Got a different graphics card and having the exact same problem so it seems to be a conflict in my pc somewhere and not the cards at fault.
BSOD soon after games start or during loading...
Would love to get this sorted.

New log posted if anyone has suggestions. thanks.

You got another GTX 460??

If that is a newly applied card for sure, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of your installed PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

another 460 :)
cheap and cheerful as not worth spending more on this pc....

psu is 500w - thought that would be enough, is there a way to see how many watts are being used?

furmark failed again, crashed just under 10 minutes. monitors wouldnt come back on after startup (is that normal?).

speccy results:
(pc been on for a few hours other that the restarts if that counts).

Minimum PSU requirement for a GTX 460 is 450 Watts.

But as furmark failed, it confirms a bad card.
