Right, my big stinking problem with my other computer is that I had just put my new graphics card in on Friday and earlier today around 4PM I was playing Call of Duty 4 when when I finished playing the "Bog" mission with "Warpig", my system just cut it's self off and restarted, when this happened, for a split second I spotted a blue-screen and so I continued to log on and no matter what I clicked on, I had the "Send error report" or "Don't send" popup. I restarted and the problem persisted, I did a virus scan and 33 viruses showed up, I deleted all of them but the problem persisted asthough the viruses were still on my machine, so what I did was a HDD reformat, which was successful, but when I was installing my Windows XP Home Edition, my system restarted it's self again half-way through and, the worst thing I wanted to come across at that point showed, the "Blue screen of death"! So I called my uncle who is in my mind, quite a computer expert, and is also the guy who built my system, he recomended me to plug the Monitor-Computer VGA wire into my motherboard rather than my GPU just until I've installed all my stuff, and then to plug it back into the graphics card, so I did as he said but now another problem occured, my monitor wouldn't recognise the computer thus having an orange light rather than the working-green light... So since then I've just given up on it until he come's to my house, or until someone on these forums helps. I'm in really desperate need for guidance right now so if anyone who understands this issue can help me then that would be awesome!
Thanks alot in advance,
