Pc restarts

You have to give your PC time to start-up.. When you first log in to windows, your PC is starting multiple applications that take up memory and processor usage. These programs run in the background after they have been started. So while they are starting and killing your memory and processor, you try and load a game that wants to use all that processor and memory..but it is already getting used by your start-up applications. So your PC is 'overloaded', usually this only makes your PC slow, very slow, for a period of time until those programs are no longer using up resources.

My suggestion... wait a few minutes after you turn it on, before playing a game.... or get more memory and/or a faster processor...

or you could stop some of those app's from running at startup... but giving it a few minutes to 'start-up' is the best solution.

Blue screen of death when playing 3d games

How do you connect to the net? wireless? Also, newer drivers dont always mean better. This problem is most likely driver related. Try rolling video drivers back to the earlier version. If connection is wireless, try reinstalling modem drivers also.
