Ok,so maybe 3 or 4 months ago i started having issues while playing Dota 2...Randomly,out of nowhere ,it minimizes ,i get a message that ''display driver has stopped working and has recovered''.(my graphics card is Radeon HD 7800 series).Later on i started getting Blue screens,also randomly.As in,pc goes into sleep mode,i try to wake it up and get a blue screen.I try to turn it off,it blue screens and restarts.After all that i tried bringing it to a friend and see if he could check it out.He did some stress tests,checked the temp of the graphics card and everything was fine.Next he updated my drivers but the problem still persists...
Also,i've been geting bsod when i shut down games...
I'm running windows 7 professional

I need more info.

What brand and type is the power supply?
What brand and type is the Processor?
What brand and type is the Memory?
What brand and type is the graphics card?


Anyway if nothing is overclocked my first guess would be it's either a driver problem (but you said that has already been checked) or a PSU problem wich is why i need to know the brand and type of it.

Well that's coil whine and i think that's a sign of a low quality PSU. Could you open up your case and take a look at the sticker on the PSU and see what's on there? One more thing you could try is to run a memtest (http://memtest.org) to see if your memory is faulty.

Uhh, yeah that sounds odd if you have 8gb ram, i suggest you do a memtest for at least two passes and see if you get any errors.
