my computer will just shutdown without notice
and when tries to restart i get this ( VT-V24P2560CAGP ). i installed a new video card and changed the mem to 256 for the AGP card from 128 to 256 so in the bios it is correct but i have always had this problem. and i have windows vista ultm. running on a dell XPS GEN. 2.
Look for Vista Drivers for your card and uninstall the software it's currently using.
what you're running into is a problem with DEP (Data Execution Prevention) that's with windows Vista.
If you can figure out all .exe files that your video card software is using, make a list of the filenames and paths.
Start the computer in safe mode.
Open up your control panel and go to the "system" icon.
Click on "Advanced system settings"
in the performance section, click on "settings"
click on the "Data Execution Prevention" tab.
select the second option and add all your files to the list.
restart the computer in normal mode.

Try first to increase your memory. It will shutdown because Vista needs more memory. According to Microsoft Vista Ultimate requires 1 GB of memory.
Recently I find functional software which can fix all these problems just with one click: tuneup360, maybe you guys could have a try.
