    It`s very difficult to be 100% sure from just one minidump.

    Can you please attach 5, or 6 minidumps here?

    Your mindump crashes with a hardware problem.

    This of course could be any hardware.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    I know what you mean.

    A lot of BSOD`s are caused by faulty ram, that`s why I think you should test your ram. If only to try and rule it out as a possible cause.

    Again one of your minidumps crashes with a hardware error.

    One crashes with win32k.sys. Multi-User Win32 Driver. Which is a Windows system driver.

    Two crash with ati2dvag.dll. Whis is your ATI graphics card driver.

    Make sure you have all the latest drivers, including your chipset drivers.

    Regards Howard :)

    sounds a bit of a mess like i say its only when running high demand games im gonna do the memory test 1 strip at a time in morning i will let u know . what would be the most likly since we last chatted i have tryed different grapics drivers old and new no joy so im still looking at hard ware especially since i have just reformatted and its still happening
    just off the top of my head would a faulty psu do this or is it unlikely and memory could be the culprit but wont know till morning you have been a great and dedicated help and have my fingers crossed if any more dumps arrive i will post if that is ok thankfully skinner :D
