    I have just installed my new FX5900 Ultra graphics card and when ever
    the card runs any 3D application for more than a couple of minutes, my
    PC will instantly shut down. The only way I can get it back up, is to
    remove my power cable from the PSU and wait about 20 seconds and then
    the PC will boot again.
    I have checked the temperature of the card before and after the
    shutdown; and the latest Nvidia reference drivers show a GPU core
    temperature of 37 C. In addition, if I put my original GeForce 3 back
    into my computer, I experience no problems.

    Looking on the internet, I have come across other people who have had
    a similar problem and this was resolved by changing the AGP slot to
    run at 4x rather than 8x. I have gone through the 648 Max BIOS and am
    unable to find anywhere where I can step down to 4x AGP.

    Any Help Will Be Greatly Received.

    Most of the people who has this problem did forget to install power (molex)
    on the videocard.
