Windows 7: Random restart when gaming, after new graphic card.

Random restart when gaming, after new graphic card.


My computer has been randomly restarting while gaming. Normally I could game 4-6 hours before a restart.
Now with games like Hand of fate the restart happens after 10-15 seconds.

I changed my old amd 6950 HD graphic card to a nvidia gtx 960.

I assume this has to do something with graphic drivers, i have not yet updated my bios. Any help would be appreciated.
