:whistling: Hi all!
I hpe all you clued up ppl can help me.
Here is my setup;
Intel Celeron D 2.6 Ghz, PC Chips P23g motherboard, 1gig ram, 80gb IDE Maxtor hdd, 80gb Sata Seagate hdd, Nvidia Geforce 6200 256mb AGP graphics card, 2 cd burners ,Creative speakers.

Here is the problem, Whenever I play games like NFS Carbon or the like the pc will play for maybe half an
hour or less then either bomb out or give me the legendary blue screen. Normal work on the pc gives no problems. I run XP Pro ,Zone Alarm and AVG. I have reinstalled windows countless times, updated all
possible drivers and even the bios. Have run hundreds of malware, spyware and adware scans. I`ve checked the temps. Cpu runs 30`C and the motherboard 44`C when doing business tasks. When gaming
the cpu goes up to bout 36`C and the motherboard 54`C
I`ve installed 6 more fans and even taken off the covers but to no avail and have even changed the graphics card to no avail. Blue screen gives the error BAD_POOL_HEADER.Any help would be a blessing!
