Hi I'm new here and need some help trying to figure out why my computer suddenly crashes.

I have a new computer just built, up-and-running for three weeks now.
Since then my friend and I have been using it quite a bit. The longer running programs have been
games like WOW and The SIMS.
While playing either of these games I have experienced a sudden crash on three different occasions in these three weeks. A click of the mouse kicks me out of the game and into a diagnostic check of the hard drive for errors and reboot sequence. Can't understand a reason why.
I keep a track of my computer's operating temp.(since it is new- and wondering if things are stable). The temps all look stable. CPU-70F
Video 69F
HD 70F
I have an OEM XP. Have not seen this happen while running other applications. I suspect it may be the games.

I need some help to know what to check before coming to any conclusions. Thanks
DX

In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This should result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.


start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.


also try updating the drivers for your graphics card

also list your full system specs
