What other hardware do you have, and are you overclocking anything?

My pc is getting restarted


When it restarts, do you get a BSOD for a moment?

Check event viewer to see if the crashes are registered by Windows.

Welcome to the forums!!

Some good advice above!

Also, I would use Driver Sweeper ( free utility ) to clean out any remnants of old nvidia drivers ( or ATi if you previously had an ATi card in your system before you bought the GTS 450 card ) as a precaution here.

Get it here:

http://driver-sweeper.en.softonic.com/

Run that and reboot your system.

Download and install the latest correct video driver for your card from nVidia's website:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

See if that helps at all...good luck! If latest driver does not work, roll back ( download and install ) to this earlier driver: NVIDIA 266.58 Driver which is known to be rock solid with Black Ops game.

Also, Sauron wants to know if you have a dual core or quad core cpu, it might be a factor here in Black Ops:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 049AAcaAah

nVidia recommended game settings for Black Ops for GTS 450 card:

http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/optimal ... TS-450-OPS

Black Ops is pretty intensive on high settings, so make sure you close up all other unnecessary programs before launching the game, reduce the load on the cpu as much as you can...am also assuming your system is free of viruses etc...

sounds like powersupply, heat or graphics driver... with regard to powersupply I wouldn't replace until all other avenues were explored.

with regards to heat it'd be cpu temp not graphics as a graphics heat buildup would cause the driver to crash and or artifacts.

graphics driver is possible and the easiest to check simply by rolling back the driver or updating to the latest from Nvidia.

Wouldn't the CPU throttle back before it gets too hot?

do you have extra power supply. also there are some game files pc have to take a heavy load for that so it is complicated. you can check that during playing the black ops your pc is getting hot or not.

GTS 450 does not use much power at all...

I wonder if it is an nVidia driver issue... hope he has latest one installed... old thread btw... :wink:

Mebbe reinstalling the graphics driver fixed it for him, so he never came back... or he just gave up... :P

Still, its an interesting problem we didn't solve due to lack of information.
