Hey guys.

I bought this computer two years ago. It was mediocre, but i never had problems. About a year later, I upgraded to be able play high end games. It runs near-perfect on almost all games, but it developed a flaw, and it is becoming more and more frequent as I continue to game on it. It freezes. Whenever I'm playing a game, it will freeze. I can't Ctrl+Alt+Dlt, and I am forced to restart. Sometimes it gives me an error message, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I'll get a blue screen with no text on it, and sometimes it will restart itself.

So, as this problem continued, I sent it in to the people I purchased it from. About 3-4 days later, they sent it back. The problem is still occuring.

I check driver updates for my video card weekly.

My current specs are:

P4 3.2 GHZ (Hyper Threading)
ATI Radeon x800 PRO
1.5 gigs of DDR RAM
P4P800 ASUS
2 HD's; one 80 gigs, the other 300.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, guys.
