    I'm hoping that I've put this in the right forum :p

    A couple of months back, I bought Tomb Raider: Anniversary for my computer and kept having random crashes while playing it. After this annoyance got out of hand, I had my computer checked and the problem appeared to be a faulty hard-drive. With no apparent way to rescue it, the offending item was duly removed, and the problems ceased.

    Until now.

    Within the last month or so, I've acquired a number of new games, these being ShadowRun, Halo 2 and Assassins Creed (all for PC, obviously). All these games have caused my computer to freeze intermittently and eventually crash (Blue Screen of Death!), which I can assure you is irritating as anything. Especially when it wipes your game data.

    As you can imagine, these games have high requirements for play, and I'm wondering whether its my graphics card that's behind this series of annoyances? I have a Radeon X1950 Pro, which is initially accepted by all the games (I do have the minimum requirements for all of the aforementioned titles).

    So, can anyone suggest what my problem might be? And, even better, might you be able to suggest a solution? Altair and MasterChief need you!

    Many thanks :)

    P.S - If I've omitted any major details, please hasten to tell me, so that I can amend them forthwith!
