Sometimes my computer will crash IMMEDIATELY after alt tabbing. I alt tab out of a game, like WoW, and ill see windows for like a second then the computer will just restart.

Does this sound like a driver issue?

Specs:

nvidia 7600GT
evga 680i motherboard
forceware 97.73
windowsXP

YEaah I'm experiencing that as well.. I can run any game for a time then when I Alt+Tab out of it within, say, 5-20mins the system will simply reboot? WTF?

I'm trying some Nvidia driver settings in the Control Panel to see if that makes a diff.

I am using the latest.. 169.17 (the extra .21 won't do anything for this Alt+Tab BS). I am trying some Nvidia Control Panel settings I read about so will report in when I can get this resolved. This is the final quirk in my massively-OC'ed system I need to fix.
