    i have a radeon 9800 pro yet everytime i try to play a high graphic game like farcry or black and white 2, after like 10 minutes i get the dreaded blue screen of death. Whats odd is that games like doom3 and half life 2 never gave this error 2 me yet those other do. Any program or anything that can help me?
    thanks in advance

    unload your drivers and reinstall them then try

    your card may be overheating...make sure there's not an ass load of dust in the videocard fan

    Set the machine to halt on the blue screen and let us know what it says...

    Or you can usually google the error code or search for it on the Microsoft Knowledge base.

    It's possible that your CPU is overheating and messing up a calculation, which would then send it into a small, silicon apoplectic fit. Get MotherBoard Monitor 5.xx from LiveWire Development and see what your CPU temp is. If it gets really high when you're playing the game, there's your failure.
