Can we get some info to work with?

IMO, I don't see anything useful that you've posted thus far.

There are lots of different blue screens...lots of different Dells...lots of different error messages...lots of differing circumstances that contribute to problems.

My Step One: Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm

My Step Two: Post all details of the error message for the STOP error/BSOD.

My Step Three: Post the system manufacturer (Dell) and model.

My Step Four: Check Event Viewer for possible clues, How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

My Step Five: Tell us what games result in errors.

I think hamluis woke on the wrong side of the bed today... :thumbsup:

When you get the blue screen this is a stop message, and it should have a number that is something like 0x0000000A. Please write this down the next time this happens and post it back here.

You can also look in the Event Viewer for error that occur at the time that you get a Stop message.

Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the times that this is happening.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

It would also help to know the make and model of your computer.

Have you added a graphics card to this computer, if so what make and model?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
