    Hey guys i need some serious help here. Ever since i buiilt my pc i have had video problems, every time a high requirement game is played my system either restarts or gives me this blue screen with a bunch of garble on it. Im running a p4 2.8 on a pc chip mobo, 1 gig ram, pny 6600gt, 80 gig hdd. Honestly i thought it was drivers so i d/loaded the latest drivers and it doesnt help. Last night i got Flight Sim X and i does it to me every time i get into a plane, settings on low. Pissing me off cuz i really want to play the game.

    Did you first load and update motherboard drivers?

    What are you using for a power supply? How are your CPU temperatures? Is the video card possibly overheating? PC Chips motherboards aren't the most stable things out there either.

    You need to post the exact wording on the bluescreen - the first few lines should be adequate.
