What BSOD error are you getting? when was the last time you checked for updates on your computer? Does it only happen on facebook games, how about if the computer is just running for a while? Have you checked your temps to make sure the computer is not just overheating?

To continue the simple questions, have you run a recently updated virus scan? Did you put in the proper type of RAM? What did you send it to the shop to fix?

BSOD's are most commonly caused by RAM problems. What 2GB RAM kit did you get? Did you manually set the RAM speed/timings/voltage to the recommended specs in the BIOS? Have you run Memtest86+ overnight to test for RAM errors?

Here's more information on BSOD's.

Sounds like either the RAM or an overheating CPU is the problem.

Out of curiosity, how full is your harddrive? I noticed on my old computer that I was getting those same 3 messages when my HDD was almost entirely full, and they disappeared once I deleted a bunch of stuff.

Which RAM kit do you have? All three of these match your description.

A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model ADQVE1A16KG - Retail

A-DATA 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model ADQVE1B16 - Retail

A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model ADQVE1A16K - Retail

The RAM will have a sticker on the side that lists their rated timings and voltage. You'll have to check your motherboard owners manual on how to set the values in the BIOS. You didn't list what motherboard you have.

You can download an ISO image of Memtest86+ from www.memtest.org and burn it to a CD. You then boot the computer from the CD and the memory test starts automatically. You should let it run for multiple hours to fully test the RAM. I usually let it run overnight.

That didn't answer my question. Go to "My Computer" and look at how much free space you have left. I was under 4 GB free on an 60 GB HDD.

Also, for temperature of the CPU, use Prime95 and Real Temp. Links to the software can be found under Step 10 of the Step-By-Step Guide to Building a PC sticky.

That RAM is rated at the DDR2 standard 1.8v, so it probably doesn't need tweaked in the BIOS. I would start off with an overnight run of Memtest86+.
