Hi! I am a new member of Geeks To Go
I sometimes came here to look up how to improve my system and I am very thankful to those who supply computer beginner like me with computer knowledge!

Anyways, my first post is, well, a "HELP ME! GOMZ MY COMPUTER IS GOING DOOOOOWN!" post

Since I got my new case yesterday, I formatted my hard drive for fresh new start and installed everything like usual
and I tried to run my 3D games, and it stopped and restarted

so I wondered if OS was the problem

I formatted and installed everything like I did before I got new case

ran DirectX 3D test, stopped and restarted again

Tiger at the live chat told me to disable "automatic restart" so I did

when I ran 3D test again, blue screen appeared and said

***STOP: 0X000000EA (0X81EE6D40, 0X8218FB28, 0XF322CCB4, 0X00000001)

so I searched for the solutions, I got many, but they were basically saying "go to safe mode, delete old drive, get new one, and it would solve most of the time"
but unlucky that I am, it didn't work

So I checked Geeks To Go forum, but they have different case
Some get this error at startup, some get this error while playing 3D games for few minutes or even hours.

Me? I get this error as soon as I start 3D applications

I narrowed the problem down to faulty graphics card or over heating
but since my graphics card is 8yrs old(GeForce 2 MX 100/200), if I had faulty graphics card, i would had this problem before.

My guess is it's over heating but I am not entirely sure

Can you tell me what your opinion is?
and if it IS overheating (hurray for me!), what should I do?

Thanks :)

P.S. This is my EVEREST report
