    Argh hello everyone, I'm having an annoying blue screen of death problem. Every time I play Warcraft3/Battlefiedl2(sometimes)/World of Warcraft, as well as other games, my PC freezes, then goes into the BSOD. You have totally NO IDEA how sick I am of this problem. This problem happens in the WORST times possible, almost like it's trying to stop me from having a good time. I've been having this problem for quite some time, and haven't found a fix for it, so I'm hoping someone here can help me with this. Here's my PC specs:

    Nvidia geforce 6800xt
    2gig ram
    800W PSU
    AMD 3200+
    939 soc mobo

    Here's a pic I took of the BSOD w/ my cell phone:

    Please, I need help ASAP because the more I wait, the more it happens. Thanks for reading.:(

    Thanks, I tried both of those, but it didnt work. The last post tells me to config my settings if I have an AGP Vid card, but I have an PCI-E. BTW, this BSOD just happened 3 times in 1 hour, I almost lost it, no joke. If anyone else can help me, thatd be more then great(y)

    You haven't said so but I assume you have the latest drivers for your video card?

    Yes, I have literally installed 10x the latest drivers, one beta driver, 2x older version drivers, and nothing worked. Right now im sitting on 84.21.

    Did you try running a test on your RAM?

    RAM always gets blamed for blue screens. Most of the time it isn't the problem, but it's worth checking. Are you overclocked at all?

    You can also run it from a CD using the "ISO" image.

    Is there any other way I can fix this problem, without burning?

    You look like you have plenty of RAM. If you have more than one stick. You could try only using one or some of them. Even if you reduced your RAM to 1 GB things still should run OK. Cheap way to do a memory test.

    The ram doesnt seem to work, I just got a BSOD 30 secs ago. Is there anything in Bios I can do to fix this? This is getting frustrating beyond belief.
