Blue Screen Errors, how can I fix this problem?

Ever since I bought my computer about a year ago Ive been getting random BSODs. They mainly happen whenever I'm stressing my computer out by playing video game or something which makes the graphics card actually do work. Normally, while running a game my graphics card will heat up to about 70 C but nothing more.

My current specs are:
Operating System:
Windows (Service Pack 1)
CPU Type:
AMD Phenom(tm) 9850 Quad-Core Processor
CPU Speed:
2.52 GHz
System Memory:
4 GB
Video Card Model:
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
Video Card Memory:
1.04 GB
Video Card Driver:
Desktop Resolution:
Hard Disk Size:
931.41 GB
Hard Disk Free Space:
754.9 GB (81%)
Download Speed:
1.05 MB/s (8.8 mbps)

I managed to copy down some of the errors I get normally when running stressful programs on my computer. They are as follows.

  1. Have you tried to monitor your temps!

  2. Those are the temps I'm getting now, I have a game running at the moment. Do you see anything irregular?
  3. The temps look ok!
  4. Do you have the most recent bios and newest graphics and chipset drivers!

    The only temp that is a little high is the graphics card
  5. Yes, as I mentioned area51, at the time I was running as game as I normally would trying to recreate the situation in which my computer would blue screen. Of course it decided not to this time -.-.

    To answer your question I do not know if I have the most recent bios or chip set drivers, but I most certainly do have the most updated graphics drivers. I wouldnt know where to get them either. Do you think it would stop the BSoD's if I could find these?
  6. Maybe the Graphics Card just heated up a little to much and that's why get the BSOD's!
  7. Could be, but why would that happen with some games that I play but not with others? Do you think it has something to do with the graphic intensity of the games I play? And if so would it be the fault of my graphics card? And following the same string of logic, would you suggest that I buy a new whole graphics card?

    Ive had a second opinion and they told me it was either
    a. my graphics card
    b. my memory
    c. my power supply

    would you rule any of those choices out and if so why?
  8. Yes my card heats more on games with more demanding graphics.

    What do you use for a power supply!
  9. My power supply is an Extreme ATX 450W; Model No: RSY-645. I dont know if 450W is enough to power my graphics card along with everything else in my computer at the same time during a program that may stressful,l to my graphics card.
  10. Probably need a little more juice.Slight upgrade in the psu!
  11. Yea that figures Area. I mean, when I first thought it was a heat problem I put in an extra fan. However, that didn't stop the computer from crashing every time I played graphically intense games ( and even at times non graphically intense games). The memory according to my friend is fine thought I still haven't run Memtest on it.

    The only fixable problem would be the power supply and I suppose that's the next route to try. I assume I should get anything which is more than 450wats?
  12. 600w would be plenty!
  13. Okay, Ill put that down as my next thing to buy for my computer. Gotta save up before I do that though as I just got a speeding ticket and I need to pay it off lol.
  14. Get back to me and let me know how the psu works out after you get it installed!Slow down less speeding tickets is more money for your rig!
