Hi all,

I'm not very computer literate so i hope i make sense. I'm having a lot of probs with my pc just shutting down....

Last week whilst playing warcraft my game ended abruptly with an error (not a server disconnect) This happened a few times.

For the last few days something new happens... while playing warcraft only my pc will shut down... as if i've pulled the plug. It used to auto load again but i changed this so it will give me an error message and this is what i get

A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to
| your computer.
| If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen restart your
| computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:... See more
| Check to make sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified
| in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for
| updates. Try changing video adapters.
| Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory
| options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove
| or disable components, restart your computer, Press F8 to select advanced

| ***ati3duag.dll-address (forgot to write this down )
| Beginning dump of physical memory.
| Physical memory dump complete.
| Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further
| assistance

Sometimes when i try to start it back up now i get:


I'vetried looking at the dump files but it wont let me read them.
I've updated graphic card drivers, the temp (speedfan) doesnt go above 51degrees and pc has been cleaned inside.

my system is (i'm told.. and i hope ive got it right)
2.8ghz cpu
2048mb ram (2gh)
ATI radeon x1650 512mb
xp media center service pack 3

For god sake get me my warcraft back!

thankyou in advance for any help

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter. Type Y in response to new screen and hit Enter.

Uninstall the ATI video drivers, including all ATI software that is reflected in Add/Remove Programs..

Reboot the system, chkdsk /r will execute.

After system boots into XP, install ATI drivers.
