    Default here comes summer

    Ahh school is finally out.. and so is the heat..
    my computer is giving me blue screen alot.. but mainly when im playin video games..i fear its a heat issue but im not sure

    I have an AMD chip (2000+) and as most kno the AMD chips tend to run at a little higher heat, i also have the side of my case off with a box fan blowing on it and my chips have collected a little dust.. how do i kno its not a virus but an heat issue?

    When you're getting blue screens when playing video games - could be your video card that might be giving u some trouble. What kind of card do you have installed? And what is the specific error?

    Chances are it is the blue screen of death but because it is probably related to graphics the text is not shown.
    Games are nortorious for making alterations to system files.
    Dumpr the games, reinstall all drivers (new ones) then only install one game at a time. You will soon find the bad one.

    Also leaving your case open is a BAD idea!!! You will collect dust and actually it can cause your pc to over heat even more so than with the cover on your case. If your amd is running too hot then get a couple new case fans.
