I seem to be having computer problems of the crashing and blue screen variety. Is anyone here computer savvy and can help maybe?

Ok, so I'm running (and this is taken from right-clicking on Computer in the Start Menu and selecting Properties): Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1, Intel Core i7-2600k CPU @ 3.40GHz, 8.00 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti. (I updated my video card drivers last night)

I am using Mozilla FireFox browser.

Whenever I'm playing a game on my computer, (I've tried Minecraft, Xenonauts, the original Crysis and even Diablo II) and same thing happens, the screen with start getting little black lines flash on and off then the screen will go black and come back then finally it goes black and stays black, and the sound freezes as well, at which point I have to restart my computer and the menu comes up saying it recovered from a fatal crash or whatever and asks if I would like to start it in safe mode or not and when it fully boots up I get a message box error report that says this:

What kind of browser are you using? Also. When does it usually happen?

I only ask because I was in the same situation as you a few months back, and I was able to trace it back to Google Chrome. As soon as I uninstalled it. The problems disappeared.

Hard to help you if we don't know your specs.

Hardware specs, OS, browser, etc. When do the crashes occur? Is it random, or when you're using a specific program or...?

Has this been happening after you updated your video card driver?

Actually, I think I've narrowed it down to my video card. Piece of crap has barely been used...

I also have Computer Problems

Lately my Google Chrome has been crashing a lot. It'd just all of a sudden crash and say "Woah! Google Chrome has crashed. Relaunch now?"

And then it'd happen over and over and over until I have to resort to using firefox :sick:

Why is this happening?

I have no idea so I'll just say it's because Google Chrome sucks. :P

I found this it may help, it may exacerbate the situation... I'm not telling which...

I think you should re-installed your laptop with a new Windows pack, or get a new laptop or desktop.

My brother had a similiar issue with his computer. He would be able to do anything except play games. Eventually figured out his graphics card was getting too hot.

Yeah, just swapped in my old card and it games run fine now with no crashing.

By the way, if a graphics card got literally caked in dust would that make it stop working? And if I cleaned it would it work again? Because it seemed like it was overheating as games would run fine at first and slowly things would start to go down hill then, CRASH!

Is it worth cleaning off and putting back in to see?
