    When I launch certain games from Steam (not sure if it's steam only games or what), games like Counterstrike: GO, Daksiders II, Saints Row The Third, my computer gets a blue screen, and then reboots. The blue screen says something about BIOS. I guess this information would be of use to you:

    Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor
    Manufacturer: AMD
    Speed: 3.3 GHz
    Number of Cores: 6
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
    Manufacturer: NVIDIA
    Chipset: GeForce GTX 560
    Dedicated Memory: 2.1 GB
    Total Memory: 4.0 GB
    Memory: 8.2 GB
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
    Service Pack: 1
    Size: 64 Bit
    Edition: Home Premium

    Just note that I can play games, I can play games like Arma 2, Dota 2, Team Fortress 2, Red Orchestra 2(funny how all of these games end in 2, maybe i can only play games with 2 in them lol) even games not purchased from Steam like World of Warcraft.

    I do not know if I need to fix the Motherboard, the videocard, some people say it's the DirectX, i honestly don't know too much about computers and all the technical stuff. Thanks for reading, I could use all the help I can get.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Is this a prebuild, branded PC like a HP, Dell, Acer etc? If so, what is the exact make and model number?

    What is the exact make, model and wattage of the PSU?

    Have you ever changed or upgraded any hardware since you got the machine?

    Is Windows and all your drivers fully patched and up to date?

    Could be drivers, PSU, graphics card, RAM or something else at this stage :(
