Hey everyone..

I got a second hand computer, but bought a new hardrive.. And after loading XP, drivers etc.. All was fine.
But once I try to play a game, it'll flash a quick blue screen and then restart
(Sometimes it doesn't even get to the pre-game titles/credits etc)

It's also happened watching a youtube video :/ (It was as I clicked for a new tab)

I've tried reinstalling the game, updated graphics card drivers..
(The bios is a few months out of date, but I don't want to risk creating more problems..)
Can anyone help?

I've tried both Quake 4 & Hellgate London
and playing onnn:
Q6600 (clocked to 2.7)
320MB 8800GTS
Asus p5w dh deluxe
3GB Memory (I've tried memtest and it appears fine)
There are also 4 fans all running fine..

(I've tried going into system properties and unclicking 'Automatic restart', but it still restarts)

Can anyone help me? :)

Try looking in your event viewer for any yellow or red tagged entrys. Double click on them to read what they are. Then either google the error or post what the error is here so we can look them up.
