Every time that I run an application, such as a PC game, Windows Movie Maker, or interactive internet games, my computer will eventually reach 100% usage and will perform a minidump and shut down without warning. When I turn the computer back on manually, I get the all too popular "The sytem has recovered from a serious error" message. This is extremely annoying. I cannot build movies via WMM, I cannot play any large, interactive online game, nor can I run a software program from a CD. Why is my computer performing so many minidumps and how can I resolve this irritating issue? I have an eMachines harddrive with Windows XP Home Edition.

Thank you in advance.

Also whenever I restart my computer after it does a minidump, it says that there was a Setup error:

"Failed to load resources from your resource file
Please check your Setup".

How can I fix these constant minidumps?
