  1. I have a friend who assembled a computer about 2 months ago and installed Need For Speed Most Wanted. Recently the OS has become ver unstable. He gets the blue screen and the machine restarts on its own. What could be the problem? The computer has 128 MB memory, 40 GB HDD, 2.6 Intel Celeron processor, Windows 2000 (no service packs) and a 128 radeon graphics card. The harddisk is partitioned into 2.

    Hmm, 128M of Ram in these days, when RAM is so cheap? That is probably part of the problem. Others maybe in order of probability (IMO) are:

    1. Overheating
    2. Overtaxed PSU (power supply unit)
    3. Failing RAM
    4. Video card
    5. HDD

    Read my links in my sig for further ideas.
