1) dont type in all caps....its considered yelling and its somewhat hard to read. also, paragraphs and punctuation are our friends :D

2) boot into safe mode (tap f8 before windows starts and choose safe mode

3) right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware, device manager.

4) click the plus sign next to "display device", highlight all entries and delete them.

5) reboot into normal mode.

6) reinstall drivers.


if that doesnt work, then we need a little more information.

1) how much system RAM do you have?

2) give me an example of one game that is crashing

3) what is the EXACT (word for word) error message.
