So my problem is Games like : Shogun 2, Deus Ex, Syndicate, crash after different periods of time Shogun 2 being the shortest, I play the games on 1600X900 and High details there's no lag just crashes, I tried playing on lowest possible graphics still the games crashed, games like: HoN, Age of empires 3, S.T.A.L.K.E.R SoC, don't crash just a 2 sec black screen every one in a while.
How can I prevent this?
Thanks for the help.
P.S: My specs:

Make and model of your power supply

1) how often your system is cleaned of dirt and dust bunnies?
2) If you are not playing any games does your computer crash?
3) When was the last time you updated your motherboard and video card drivers?

I'll try and clean it then I'll get back to you with the info you want, but it doesn't crash when I don't play games.

K, so my system is crystal clear, yet the games still crash, also isn't my GPU GeForce GT 430 it was included in the specs.
Also here's power unit i forgot to include it in the specs :

Well it's been a while since I updated my drivers I'll get right on it.

yes the power supply is very under powered for the graphics card you are running

as for the system crash due to any software issues so lets do the following

follow the article below and post files here

So I zipped and attached the result of the test from the "BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_", But I couldn't use the "prefmon", Can you provide some pointers if the report is so necessary.
Also am not getting a BSOD if that's what you're thinking.
Thanks for the help.
P.S: I also ran the "Driver verifier" thing from the link you gave me if that helps, it found no violations, and it gave me no BSOD.

Yes I understand
but this gives us more information about your hardware and software to look at

ok so couple of things

GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_BUS_PRV
has caused few BSODS you only have 6 mini dumps in there

One big problem I see is the "tune up utilities"
Have you been using this to fix your registry errors and other stuff?

Uninstall that these kind of utilities cause more problems rather then fixing any

Boot into Safe mode
open up command prompts with Administrator privileges
Type "SFC /SCANNOW"
let is finish and see if it found anything that it has fixed or wasnt able to fix
Reboot

another thing Do you happen to have a multimeter because I would love to have you test that power supply
How To Manually Test a Power Supply With a Multimeter

Here are the test results you ordered

Should I just format and get on with it?
I mean there's alot of strange stuff going on in my PC, things like facebook being a screenshot (Nothing is clickable), Addons/Extensions disappeared from Firefox (Even tho they are completely functional).
And no I don't happen to have a Multimeter but I'll try to get my hands on one and follow that article you linked.

Yo maybe I should've mentioned this earlier, but sometimes my PC won't boot telling me that something is missing (can't remember it's name, it had manager in it, something like Boot manager or something), and it gives me that until I move the hard disk's cable a lil' while it's still plugged in, then the PC would boot, hope that helps.
Also, is it me or does the "Edit" button disappear after 5 mins of post ?

From what I am seeing
I am going to say that your power supply is causing these issues it is underpowered to get started with
On top of it it has a year or two in service

You can format all you want

So you're saying that my power supply is causing all these problems ?
If so then what kind of power supply should I get ?
