Data-problems
« on: October 14, 2005, 10:56:52 PM »
My pc reboots when i play games...
or scans :-\

it says my system was restored and the error report says the problem was caused by a device driver.

Also, BFASTFO and pci-utility are found (as hardware) and an install wizard wanna run-
-but it can't find the req.software...

maybe both those has something to do w the problem?
i use xp-pro on a laptop.

does anyone know what can be and maybe has some fixes?
also note:

i try'd an bios (to fix the problem) update and the pc shutoff after a while, dunno if it was done,
but my pc still works and the 3.5 floppy w the  update don't start the update anymore...

the bios got updated ???

Are you sure this is avast! related?
Did you install any other antivirus prior avast! in your computer? which one?

and no, there's only one antivirus on my pc.

Visit the manufacturers website of the laptop and install ALL drivers for it.
Normal laptops are not ment to play games on and are willing to overheat which will cause a shutdown or reboot.

Yes it looks like your graphics card drivers are causing this, better update your drivers like Eddy said  ;)

Just Toshiba...

Go here:

You'll see 3 steps. Fill each one, make your choices, first Notebooks, then Family, then finally your Model

You should be able to find all drivers for your model of a notebook in there.

Also disable auto-reboot and if you get a bsod, take the error to google and the MS knowledgebase. It will tell you more about what is going on.

Tanya, I also think that your BIOS updating didn't finish properly... it could also be the core of your problems. Can you check somehow if you can update your BIOS one more time ?

It shouldn't reboot your computer immediatelly... at least not without asking you prior to reseting the machine... or maybe your BIOS update utility works that way and it's kind of weird, I don't know...

Try those things as well...  ;)
