play a game my computer screen goes black

Question

When ever I go to play a game my computer screen goes black, then it restarts for no aparent reason. when it reboots an error message pops up that says the drawing operation could not be completed, the driver for the msi geforce fx 5700Le seems to be the problem. I have the latest Nvidia driver and all of my mobo drivers are installed. I also took the time to download all the XP updates, and it still reboots.

PLEASE HELP I AM IN DIRE NEED OF PLAYING MY GAMES!

From, Chris Hatcher

It could be a problem with directx You can try to install directx to see if that fixs the problem It could also be you resolution You can try to reduce your Screen resolution, You can do so by rite clicking away from any program on your desktop Then click on the setting tab There you can reduce the resolution like to 1024 by 768 pixels You can also scan the game to see if there is any virus And also see if the game can work with windows XP
