1. post your power supply specs - make/model, wattage & amperages. If you don't know, open the case & get them off the label.

2. the 8500GT is better than the onboard video, but it's not a gaming card.

Does it have SATA power suply cable? As i have SATA hard drive. Sorry maybe it is stupid question, but i new to this.
Thank you, i very apreciate you help and time. I hope that is going to sort my problems.

Why 8500GT 1GB graphic card is not a gaiming card, because on the box it is saying it is good for it and it supports DirectX10.

all newer psu's must have sata power cable.
8500gt isn't a gaming card but it's capable of running newer games (medium or low settings). If u want to enjoy games u better upgrade the v-card (atleast 9600gt or 9800gt or 250gts).

try to un-install nvidia driver then restart the system and start the game (do not install driver) but don't play it (stay in menu screen) and wait to see if the system shutdown. Did u un-install onboard video driver?

Hey u need to un-install onboard video driver. How to do it follow this.
1. Shutdown system and unplug the power cable

2.Open side panel and remove the video card

3.Use onboard video and boot into windows and un-install geforce driver (better un-install both onboard video and v-card driver)

4.Shutdown the system and install a v-card then in windows install v-card driver.
Post back the results.

Done all that. Removed vcard,uninstaled everithing (throug device manager).
Put back vcard, instaled drivers for vcard.
Went to the game, as soon as game is loaded and you about to start play, PC shut downs.(multiplayer option).
Do i need to change anything in BIOS, when i instaled vcard, couldnt find any options there?
