BFG GeForce 8800 GTS 500MHZ 640MB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out HDCP DIRECTX10 Video Card
250 Gb Maxtor 7,200RPM IDE HDD
Pioneer DVR-111D CD-RW/DVD-RW Combo
450W PSU Stock with the case, 12V1 = 14A 12V2 = 16A
I have no clue what the problem is, but windows installs and the computer seems to work fine when i'm just surfing and such, but as soon as i launch a game, or even one of Nvidia's demos I receive the unexpected quit error from Windows, and then from there the system just becomes highly unstable, programs start quitting, other programs wont open, RunDLL and weird things like Windows Login UI even crash... but then as soon as i restart the computer it is fine untill I once again launch one of those progys .. im lost.
If reinstalling your Video card drivers doesn't work, you may need to check that your power supply is giving you enough power for the 8800, I had a similar problem when trying to run 3D mark 06 with my old 450 watt enermax psu. When I changed my psu to a 600 watt Gamestream the problem was solved.
Your RAM may be FUBAR. Get a copy of MEMTest386 and check it out. MEMTest is freeware. Start with both sticks in place, and then pull out one, test the other and then flip sticks and check the second one. Make sure you run the entire set of tests at least once. I have seen cases where a problem with the RAM didn't show up until near the end of the last test.
The programme needs to be watched while it is doing its thging, so make sure you have a coffee with you.
If your RAM checks out OK, look at the video card drivers, then check for spyware.
thanks for all the replys, ummm... about spyware, i did not connect the computer to the internet yet and these problems were still occuring, so i dont think thats the problem, anyways i bought a new PSU and am gunna try it tonight after work, please give me any other thoughts
I would bet money on that PSU. PSUs that come with the case are generally very low quality. Plus, 450 watts may be what it is advertised at but I doubt that it is providing anything near there. That is a weak PSU for your PC anyways.
