  1. While i play games my computer would randomly restart itself it got quite annoying, then i noticed one particullar spot in one game where it would restart itself , so i went and i turned off auto restart. When doing that the problem occured still and i get this error messege 0x00000050.

    that happened to me, and i rolled back to some earlier video drivers, and it doesn't happen anymore. specifically, i went from nvidia forceware 71.90 to 66.93.

    The bsod with the 0x00000050 error message is one of those that can be caused by a multitude of different things. I.E bad ram, incompatible software hardware etc.

    Go HERE for a list and explanation of windows stop messages.

    To eliminate the possibility of a ram problem download and run Memtest86+ you can get this from

    Let it run for at least seven passes.
