  1. My PC crashed when i was playing EnterTheMatrix ... it was a bluescreen, but without anything on it. Just a plain blue color on screen. Is it sort of RAM problem? because i on the computer for almost 3 days.

    I have uploaded the Minidump file, sorry to be troublesome, but i need help from the experts here. Thank you.

    90% of the time when a computer bluescreens or crashes in a game it is because of video drivers. Update those.

    Check the Event Viewer for information around the time the blue screen happened.

    Is it my problem consider as bluescreen? The bluescreen happens on me is quite special, cause there is nothing on it, just a plain bluescreen. I encountered bluescreen problem before, but that is with message.

    By the way, I'm using Radeon 9550, suppose that my video card driver is ok, I can run NFS:Carbon, FIFA06, WIII:FrozenThrone, CS:Source smoothly, since EnterTheMatrix is quite an old game.

    minidump seems to be corrupted. If you have any new ones post a couple of them (up to five if possible)

    Have a go at this:
    and like sngx says, update your drivers as well..
