hello first off i'll list my specs. asus m2n32 sli deluxe mobo, amd athlon x2 2.4ghz, 3gb patriot ddr2 800mhz ram, nvidia gts 250 gpu, wd caviar hd.

now for the problem over that past year my framerate in world of warcraft has droped significantly. i thought it might be my outdated video card a 7600gs so i bought a new card and the fps went up but not as much as i thought it would. i thought maybe my processor is to slow so i tried to overclock it first using asus ai overclock, the computer would not boot up, second over clocking it manually setting the multiplyer and such still nothing even with the smallest overclock. so im not sure if my mobo is taking a turn for the worse or if its my processor. any help would be appreciated

Lets see what you have in your startup
Please click on
Start>>Run>>Type in msconfig>>>press enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results

Ok when it gives you the BSOD is it showing you a error message?
Also just for my information what is the make and model on the new video card? have you checked for a newer driver?

BSOD is Blue Screen Of Death

usually it will give you a error messag with a code will bring up the boot options.
Go down to where it says Disable reboot on Error2 or something like that.n and that
if it flashes to fast to read it you can reboot, go into boot options by tapping F8 on second black screen
That will bring up a text screen where one of the options is
Disable reboot on error or something similar.
Click on that one and the next time s BSOD happens it will stop and you can then write down the error and post it for us to research
