  1. I get the blue screen of death when ever i try to play games such as counter strike source or day of defeat source. Ive been able to play all my games with no troubles for a long time and i just started geting the blue screen two days ago. I havent made any new changes in hardware and no new drivers and havent downloaded or installed anything new. The blue screen says MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. Which i have come to find out means that im having a hardware error and it is most likely my RAM, mobo, power supply, or processor that needs to be replaced. And ive come to find out the error code is
    BCCode : 9c BCP1 : 00000000 BCP2 : BAB3C050 BCP3 : B2000040
    BCP4 : 00000800 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1

    So how do i know which one is the problem?

    My specs:

    xfx nvidia 650i mobo
    xfx nvidia 8500gt video card
    2gigs of ddr2 600 ram
    intel core 2 duo E6600 procesor
    230w power supply
    Windows xp home

    run memtest 86+ from a cd or floppy for at least 7 passes.

    your psu is also grossly underpowered.
    replace it. google psu calculator and add 30% to the results for cushion.
