Windows crashes to BSOD after I exit games

  1. I dont know whether it's a hardware problem, or I have to reinstall windows. After I finish and exit games such as Battlefield 2142, Counter-strike: Source on steam, or World of Warcraft, a couple of seconds later it crashes to a blue screen saying unhandles exeption. Now this doesnt happen all the time, but it happens frequently.

    Do you think it's a software problem? I have all the drivers updated, including Nforce chipsets drivers, video and sound.

    I built my PC myself

    Pentium D - 805
    Gigabyte 8ip775-g
    Raedon X850 AGP
    1GB Kingston 400Mhtz DDR

    Should I format and reinstall windows?

    Make sure ALL your mobo drivers and your gfx drivers are up to date!!!!
  3. Go to gigabytes webiste and download and install the Intel chipset drivers for that board. Reboot after installation. Then go to the ATI website and download the latest catalysts.
