Infinite Loop Fix
Due to the huge amount of resources that video cards, sound cards, larger cpu's, they suck your power supply to the point that application cant perform. In turn it causes lockup, reboot and boot to desk top.A lot of resellers are only slapping in a 300watt power supply in newer systems. That doesn't work, you need at least a 400watt or greater.Now for example: AMD 2100cpu, gf4 video card, cd burner, cd rom,netcard, modem, 2 or 3 hard drivers( raid especially ). You need at least 450watt POWER SUPPLY. Take my word on it.This is the biggest issue i have studied on the net and in my lab for 1 1/2 years now. So many people have taken components back to the stores had them tested, to find out there is nothing wrong with them and go around shaking there heads in wonderment, without even considering POWER SUPPLY. So next time think about it, do the math ( HOW MUCH POWER IS MY SYSTEM USING )

    take the case off of your computer and locate the power supply (the thing the power cord plugs in to. There should be a label on the side that tells you "400w" or "400 watt"... etc.

    More important than watts is amps, make sure your +12 volt rail(s) is over the amps required for your graphics card or you will get problems.
