  1. I am having trouble with my computer, every time i play a game it gets a Blue Screen. The computer then automatically reboots sometimes re freezing during the process. I am no expert in computers so i don't know how to proceed to find a solution. Please help me. My computers specs are :
    Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 255 Processor 3.10 GHz
    RAM: 8GB
    System type: 64-bit Operating System

    Thanks in advance

    Nothing specific in the minidumps, just a unspecified driver fault./ What kind of video are you running? Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager? Have you applied all the Windows Updates?

    Could you upload the actual .dmp files?

    Would the actual dump file really help here dernt? The text file shows them pretty plainly, but all I see is "general" causes for Windows instability

    I have applied all the windows updates, i am running a Nvidia GTX460 SE video card if that's what you mean by video and there aren't any yellow exclamation points in the device manager. As for the actual .dmp files, it won't let me upload them.

    Okay, try lowering the settings on the problem games and see if the BSOD's stop
