No error message just keeps on restarting my computer when it loads back up no error message apears it just looks like nothing has happened.

I have tried taking it off and putting it back on but still no luck

Right click on "My Computer" --> properties --> advanced tab --> startup and recovery "settings" button --> under "system failure" untick "automatically restart".

The next time it happens, it should give you a blue screen error. Copy down the error including all numbers. Should look something like : 0x000.....etc. Post the error here and we can help from there.

Quake III Arena plays under xp now using the 40.72 drivers some other games crash now but I am happy with the result and I can wait untill they relase the completed version of the 40.72 drivers.
