  1. Okay I just got this computer from Tigerdirect.ca and its already giving me trouble because it sometimes randomly restarts on me, especially when I play games (like guild wars). I checked my mini-dump folder and found some recent files were added there, would it be possible for someone to take a look at these files and tell me what the problem is please?
    It would be very much appreciated :)

    Two dumps point to nv_disp.dll. The video drivers.

    a. Make sure all games have the latest patches

    b Uninstall then reinstall the latest drivers.HERE

    Be sure to do this properly, by first uninstalling your current drivers through add/remove --

    reboot your computer--use Driver Cleaner to remove any unwanted leftovers--

    restart your computer again --install your new drivers--play.

    c.Sometimes Omega drivers work better.

    Edit : If you`ve just bought it,there is also the return to sender option :)
