  1. Hy. I need your help. When I try to play a movie the screen goes blue and my comp restarts. I don't know what to do. I checked my ram memory and it doesn't have any problems. Can you help me?

    Does this occur at any other time and if so when, i.e. gaming, internet surfing, etc.

    Have you updated your video card driver?
