    As much data that you can add will help find an answer to your games crashing. Stuff like: What games you have a problem with, your comp specs, anything and everything related to your games crashing.

    In terms of a generic answer, without any symptoms described or other relevant info it would be: I don't have a clue... :D

    Reason for that answer is that there are multiple points of fault that can contribute to a "crash" such as software, hardware, drivers, and temperature. So furthering to aksd's post, please kindly give us some details.
    I'll make it into a Q&A for you:

    -PC specs? Make/Model or:-
    Motherboard:
    CPU:
    RAM:
    Graphics Card:
    PSU: (info can be found on a label when you open up your pc and take a look at the box that connects your power cables)

    -Symptoms noticed
    Before the crash:
    During the crash:
    After you reboot/get out of the crash:

    -How was your PC before this happened?
    -What games are you haveing difficulty with?
    -Did you get updated drivers for all your devices?
    -What are your temperatures?
    -Go to C:\Windows\Minidump and locate the most recent ones (if you have any) and post them up here.

    That should start the ball rolling for now. You can download some software like Everest Home ( www.lavalys.com ) to help you answer some of these questions.

    Oh yeh, Welcome to Techspot :wave:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Both your minidumps crash at your ATI videocard drivers.

    Try using different drivers. Disable fastwrites in either your bios or by using the ATI tool.

    Check that your psu is putting out enough power, particularly check to see how many amps it gives on the 12volt rail. You can find this info on the psu label.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
