I recently built a new computer, and, as the title suggests, I keep on encountering a 'blue screen of death' error a lot when I am using my computer-in fact, every time i use it, as it often pops up within a half hour of startup. at first i believed it to be related to a game, as i would only encounter it while playing oblivion, but now i encounter it all the time. i know that this problem may seem vague, but i have no idea what could be causing it, since all my hardware managers show that everything is working correctly, and there should be no conflicts with the software. so i'll provide all my system specifications, just in case someone can spot a compatibility (though everything should work fine together) problem...
*everything is new*
MSI K9AG Neo2 (motherboard)
2 gigs corsair ram
AMD AM2 4600+
evga geforce 8800 gts 640mb graphics card
there are only two things i can think of as possible causes of the error... one: is overheating; though my cpu temp isn't too hot, at 91 degrees, with a very max of 104, my system temp is often running at 114 degrees and higher. i don't know if those temperatures are hot enough to cause a overheating crash...
the other is that, possibly, i'm not supplying enough power to everything, and this is causing a crash-i have a 425 watt power supply, and the minimum recommended for the 8800GTS is 400...and with everything else included, i don't know if i'm trying to filter too little power to too much stuff.
the very last thing i'll add is that i have the MSI Dual CoreCenter installed, and when my computer starts up, it will emit a loud, car-alarm like beeping sound (obviously a warning sound) for several seconds, before the blue screen of death makes it's appearance. (however, if i exit, my system stays running for several more minutes) as you can see, i've got a problem.
thanks for reading this rather long post, hopefully you can help. again, sorry for the lack of too much detail, if you need more, and i can provide it, i'll be happy to1
