    Ok, this is being a real pain in the ( | ). Every once in a while after playing games or stuff pretty graphical, i will get a blue screen saying that there was a memory dump to prevent damage to the computer. haven't seen the message in a while, but according to the error reporting, it said it happened due to a driver. is there any program i can run that would identify the problem spot? next time i get the actual blue screen, i'll take a pic of it and put it on here if anyone needs it.

    Yes there is a way to find out more if it did a memory dump there is a .dmp file on your puter, in the same location there is a .txt with the info on what happened ......... by default I believe the location is

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson

    those .dmp's can be rather large and are save to delete inside the .txt you should find some info :)
