Hello. Looking at your specs, I assume that a Pentium 4 is not enough to run these kinds of games, so the overwhelming amount of data going through the cpu may have been causing your system to overheat. Do these steps: (1) Uninstall and then re-install your graphics card driver, if problem persists, go to number 2 (2) Try playing around with the ATI Catalyst settings, set everything there to default (3) If problem still persists, then I -am- sure that your PC and/or graphics card is way too overheated, in this case: (a) I recommend getting a heat-monitor (doesn't come cheap though) for your PC, to keep yourself notified of the temperatures of your PC (b) Try buying more fans and if you can afford it get a water-cooling system
Above all, if you can afford a better -Gaming- PC then I'd suggest that, because your system isn't really that great for new games.
Hi, You have told that blue screen comes only if you connect your nvidia display/graphics card. Usually Blue screen comes if there is some problem with the hardware or due to incompactible hardware drivers. Remove the nvidia card from you system. Reinstall your system and then install all the drivers present in your motherboard cd. After that go to nvidia website, download the latest driver for your nvidia display/graphics card driver. Now connect your nvidia hardware back to your motherboard. Before that clean the dust particles present in the motherboard connecting terminals, if any. Now boot your system into safe mode. Restart your system into normal mode, install the latest driver downloaded for your nvidia hardware. Now everything should work fine. If you get bluescreen again, remove the card from system, restart into safe mode, uninstall the driver. Check the hardware in someother system, to detect wheather the problem is with your nvidia card or not. I hope this will help you out.
Blue screens are software related errors. You would need to try to start the PC in protected mode and remove the drivers from the registry and/or the startup. If possible, run the system restore and put it back to a prior date before you tried installing the drivers.
It's possible you may have a card that will not work with your system.
If you are using an AGP or PCI graphic card try disabling the on board video adapter from BIOS.
Ensure that you have the latest drivers for this video card installed.
If the video adapter is using shared memory, then you may have a faulty RAM module.
Reinstall Direct X and any graphic acceleration software.
Go to BIOS and disable memory caching and shadowing options, this usually does not solve the problem, but you never know.
Contact video card or Motherboard manufacturer, there may be an issue between video adapter and your motherboard, or the specific software that you are using. In that case manufacturer may require to download a patch.
alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.
