  1. Here is a little background information.
    I built a computer a while back, and after the videocard burned up and stuff, I figured it was time to upgrade my computer.

    I replaced the:
    Power Supply

    It seemed to work fine at first, but after a little bit of gaming, the computer will lock up for about 4 seconds, and then take me to a blue screen with some technical information.

    I looked into it a little bit, and aparently its a hardware issue, and I thought it might be related to my RAM since that was one of the only components I didn't upgrade.

    However it still happens, so I took it to the shop about a week ago, and they charged me 40 bucks to tell me nothing was wrong... That it could be some sort of software issue related to the game I play.. So I reformatted when I got home, and of coarse 5 mintues after plugin'in the computer up it did it again.

    Here are the details I got with EVEREST (saw that it might help you guys help me on another thread)

    It seems to do it during gaming mostely, however it has occasionaly done it when installing or using a lot of resources I guess would be the proper way of wording this. For example, when I was reinstalling software aftering reformatting, like windows update, and browsing the net. It also did it.

    However, most of the time it happens when I am gaming.

    My PSU is a Dynex 500watt power supply.

    I already cleaned out all the slots and the entire computer when I reformatted (about four days ago) since I installed a secondary hard drive.

    That error is for a faulty CPU. But there were alot of issues with the earlier dual core chips and gaming. Go to AMDs web site and see if you need their patch. Also run Windows update. Also make sure you havethe latest chipset drivers.

    Are you getting any minidumps? Look in C:\windows\minidump. Zip up 5 or 6 and attach them to your next post.

    Just attach the dump files as they are. I think you can attach 5 at a time.
