Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance

my free space is 93GB
and the games i play are RF online, Return to the Castle: Wolfenstein Enemy Territory

i crash like hell after playing for sometime...could this be due to overheating GPU? cuz my PSU is 305W

G965 is an integrated graphic by intel and i don't think so it has a fan with it

That error usually implies a problem with RAM. If you were low on RAM the hdd will help take up the slack, but if you have 93GB of free space then this shouldn't be a problem. Two things come to mind, if you have a build up of dust on the CPU heat sink and fan assembly you could be having an over heating problem.

please pin point me about this problem

one more thing. i am having G965 as a graphic card..will changing the graphic card to a better one like Geforce 8600 would be wise to avoid bsod in games?


Extras: one of my friends say that in the code 0x9c in the stop code says that it has something to do with the Direct X 9.0C is there any possibilities?
