PC WOULD OCCASIONALLY BLUE SCREEN BEFORE UPDRADE. ( ONCE A MONTH OR SO AFTER BEING LEFT ON FOR SEVERAL HOURS) SINCE UP GRADE IT DOES IT ANY WHERE FROM 2 MINUTES AFTER START UP TO 30 MINUTES. SEEMS TO OCCUR MORE WHEN RUNNING GRAPHIC INTENSE GAME (AGE OF CONAN ETC). I HAVE UPGRADED DRIVER TO THE MOST RECENT FROM THE OEM SITE. CAN ANYONE HELP?

1: Go to BIOS and set it to default values. If not better:

2: Remove the new video card and place the old one. If not better then reinstall the new card because the problem is not there.

3: Remove the new memory modules and place the old ones. If the computer runs better then remove the old modules and place the new ones. If you have more then one new memory modules then insert them one at a time and change between them to find if one is faulty.

Basically it's a trial and error process in which you try to pinpoint the source of the problem.

installation and removal of parts must be done with a powered off computer.

If not successful then report your computer's specs, download memtest86 (use the link below) and run a memory test.
