my motherboard fried, I bought a new one and replaced it with a new case with more and bigger fans.

first time it happened I was playing Prototype, my speakers made a weird click sound and the screen flashed. I could still play the game but without sound.
then it happened playing Combat Arms and it crashed to blue screen.
I took out my graphics card and used my onboard one.
I played Lunia and it did the same, but it crashed to desktop and not blue screen.
this is what it looked like when it was at desktop.

ok, first step the only thing that had a yellow caution sign on it was my AMD Low Level Device Driver.

second step. after I download and install WhoCrashed, I click analyze and a green bar pops up, goes away, and nothing happens.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Two of your Crashes are due to the OS system itself

The other two are due to your Network driver


Do you have a wireless network or is it wired?

AMD Low Level Device Drive this also seems to be due to your network adaptor.

Partly correct
Uninstall drivers then reboot
See if that takes care of part of the problem.

well, I jumped the gun. It works better then it did, but I still have problems.
first I tried to play Counter Strike, and that crashed.
it was running fine at first.
then I played Garrys Mod and it crashed.
then on Lunia online I can play for a lot longer then usual, but it crashes still.

I checked event viewer and I keep getting this Error.
Some processor performance power management features have been disabled due to a known firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware.

I did some research and people were saying that they were getting that error from Vista Service Pack 1. So I downloaded Service Pack 2 and installed it. I no longer receive that error I post above but all 3D games still crash. There are no errors in the event viewer except for that the game that I had running encountered an error.
