hello,

i am very confused as my computer turns of on its on then back on at random times. However it says there is a seaious and currupt error that cannot be recognised, i bought a second hand monitor about 3 weeks ago and i hadnt used the computer b4 hand as it was a family members and never did it b4.

if i leave my monitor turned off it dosnt do it anywhere near as often as when its turned on.. it usually only happens when i begin running more then one programme but if i play world of warcraft game then it turns off more often.
my computer says my graphics card does not support directX ( mr graphics card is Intel(R) 82845G/GL?GE?PE?GV) however i was told b somebody tht it shud run fine. ive looked about and i dont know if its tht perhaps my ram is incorrect with my motherboard ect, im seriously confused.

if anybody could help in anyway plz do.
