hi i've recently been having problems with my computer its been crashing all the time, usually when i run a game or play a video - but im sceptical that its the video card. i took off the auto system reboot but no messages came up so i tried running eventviewer and here's what i got:

tons of errors including
ERROR - cdrom
ERROR - browser
ERROR - ntfs
ERROR - service control manager
ERROR - W32time
WARNING - tcpip
WARNING - browser

WARNING - application error
WARNING - application hang
+other warnings

anybody have any idea what the problem could be? thanks.

clear event viewer, recreate the error and look for an error that occured at that time.

A certain number of errors is to be expected and have no bearing on your problem

service control manager sound scary, but often times you can look at a succes later and see the service took too long to load.

ntfs--not good
cdrom--scratched disk?

So my computer seems to reset after playing games for a long period, or when i try to watch a dvd or install something. I'd also like to mention that i used "ace utilities" at one point and cleaned out my system registry, maybe that could be the problem?
