My system is...

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (754)
ABIT K8Ultra V Pro VIA K8T800
Nvidia 6600GT
1024 meg Giel (400) Preformance Ram
2x Seagate 120gig SATA-150 HDD's
Thermaltake 420W PS
XP SP2

I have only tried 3 games since getting the computer - Call of Duty, GTA Vice City, and BFV...all crash.

On COD and GTA the computer crashes in game, BFV crashes at the Main Menu...I have a AOC 19" CRT Monitor if that matters...now for the funny bit...the lights for the PC are still on, yet the Monitor light goes Yellow and the Keyboard lights go out... It does run fine on the Desktop though...

I have to turn it off as restart doesn't work...please help guys...

Thanks

Alright, well there are a couple things you can try, and another thing if you have the parts around to use.

First, make sure you have the latest drivers, available at nvidia.com.

Download and run SpeedFan and make sure you're CPU isn't overheating.

If you have another video card laying around, you could try it in the computer, just to make sure it isn't your video card.
