  1. Hi, I recently upgraded my video card to gforce7800GS and my comp always crash when playing games like fear and cs:s, no problem with warcraft3 though.
    I get this message in the blue screen
    "PAGE_ON_NONPAGE_AREA" something like that..
    I guess if theres any problem with my hardwares its got to be the videocard but what's wrong with it exactly?
    Thanks in advance!

    Faulty ram

    Probably it is faulty ram. Run memtest to stress test the ram.

    I concur. Download memtest from here and unzip the file. Burn the ISO in it onto a blank CD and boot ur PC with it. Let the test run overnight and if you find any errors at all, your RAM has gone bad. Also, let me know what brand of PSU u have ATM.
