crashing when playing games help!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
so recently i've noticed that when playing games it tends to crash i get a blue screen(not blue screen of death as there is no text) and immediately pc restarts ... this happens only when i'm playing games. i've checked the temps while playing and nothing goes above 40C cpu stays the ambient temp goes no higher then 34 (i know i need better cooling but these temps shouldn't cause a system crash) my vid card never loses frames and temp goes no higher then 54C my pc hasn't shown any signs of slowing and this only happens when gaming any suggestions?

From my own experience if your games are crashing its more than likely linked to overclocking, try stock setting on the cpu and ram and see if it still does it to be sure.

well then id use driver cleaner and do a fresh install on your video card drivers like retro mentioned above, also you may want to try running a registry cleaner like registry mechanic that wouldnt hurt either incase its something else.. just my 2cents!
