    I got problems with MP 1 and 1.0.1! Often, when I want to start playing back MP3s in MyMusic, the Computer simply reboots without any (error-) message. I just thougt, it could be solved by formatting and reinstalling pc and all drivers but it doesn't seem to be so easy. The problem hasn't been solved by this.

    What could be the problem?

    Thank you!

    I would suggest that this might be the problem

    I think that the minimum required is an ATI Radeon 9550 with at least 128MB RAM ... ?

    Could be, but MP worked for 4 months w/o problems. And if the problem is really caused by the graphic card, why does the pc reboot when playing music?

    computers generally reboot when you attempt to do things, as a result of bad drivers, failed ram modules, overheating and power supply failers, i seen almost all of these at one time or another, you should take a look at your diver configurations, then test your ram modules, monitor temps etc
