Windows 7: PC Resets After Installing New 9600GT

PC Resets After Installing New 9600GT

I recently swithced from XP to Windows 7. I was using Nvidia 9600GT graphics card on XP with no problems. Somehow my graphics card got broken, i sent it back to manifacturer and got a new one. Then I installed new 9600GT on Windows 7 and now my pc resets itself on the loading screen everytime. I don't think psu is an issue because this new 9600GT has "now %40 more power efficient" written on it. What can be possibly wrong? My system details are:

Intel Dual Core E2140 @1.60
3GB DDR2 800 mhz RAM
Nvidia 9600GT
psu 200W

edit: Also when I try to boot in safe mode i get a blue screen error says "The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant." But I think its a misleading error, no way my bios is not fully ACPI compliant.

Hi mechanix

The minimum PSU requirement for the 9600GT is around 400W.
You will need to change your PSU.

Hi mechanix

Could you confirm the PSU rating and model that you have?
Are you running an OEM-build e.g. DELL, HP etc.?

Procyp model:PR-200W 20+4 PIN AC Input:230V, 50hz, 4A

also another thing i'd like to say, my previous card had an socket to plug an extra power cable, but this doesnt have it.

My pc doesnt have a brand like DELL, HP etc. I bought all parts seperately and put them together.

Hi mech

Power is your limitation and which I think is responsible for your current issues.
Could you confirm whether your system is an OEM-build or is it custom (self-build?

Re-read your previous post and could you confirm that there are no 6-pin power connectors for your replacement card?

Well, so i guess it means i have to get a new psu. But still i dont understand how it was working with this psu before. Is there any way this problem is related to operating system?
