I got a second hand computer, but bought a new hardrive.. And after loading XP, drivers etc.. All was fine.
But once I try to play a game, it'll flash a quick blue screen and then restart
(Sometimes it doesn't even get to the pre-game titles/credits etc)

It's also happened watching a youtube video :/ (It was as I clicked for a new tab)

I've tried reinstalling the game, updated graphics card drivers..
(The bios is a few months out of date, but I don't want to risk creating more problems..)
Can anyone help?

I've tried both Quake 4 & Hellgate London
and playing onnn:
Q6600 (clocked to 2.7)
320MB 8800GTS
Asus p5w dh deluxe
3GB Memory (I've tried memtest and it appears fine)
There are also 4 fans all running fine..

(I've tried going into system properties and unclicking 'Automatic restart', but it still restarts

Help meee.. Please :flowers:

Sounds like a driver issue. Are your video card drivers updated, and do you have the latest Windows XP Updates? What kind of power supply do you have?
