Not to worry man. I'm also having the same prob maybe worse than u. The gfx looks great but as I try to beam to the other ship on the ship u start on the minute I hit f my computer reboots. I play wow, mw2, co, coh and etc. None of these probs occur sto a game I'm curious to try. No surprise here. I'm seeing a lot of people are having this issue. Cryptic failing again much? And I'm not techno savvy enough to do the fixes mentioned here without a step by step guide. Lol.
I had the same issue. I have an Nvidia 9600 GSO and it was overheating like crazy but that was following Cryptics suggestion of getting the latest drivers for my vid card. I got those an WHAM overheat like crazy while playing.. I reverted back to the one I used prior and turned down some graphic settings. Haven't had an issue since.
