Whenever I run a high-graphic program, the computer will bluescreen soon after it starts. Not immediately, soon. For instance, if my screensaver comes on, all is fine. As soon as I close it, bluescreen of death. The following message comes up:
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xBF07642E, 0xA311B713, 0x00000000)
I have done research on the topic, and found that the cpu temperature will skyrocket just before it crashes. I haven't however found a solution. Of course there's the usual spyware/drivers/hardware/-format it- sort of things. I really need to use this computer, so I need help urgently. I have run scans on Avast, Ad-aware and spybot s&d.
