    Ok, so everytime I seem to start up a game now my PC seems to just crash and give me blue screen and shut itself down. Now my PC is not exactly old not totally modern though, Doom 3 used to work fine on it... I don't get it, ive scanned for viruses and my PC doesnt seem to find anything. Anyone know the problem or can give any advice? Thanks.

    sounds like the motherboard, my fairly "new" computer had the same problem, now it's sitting outside my room in the rain

    Most games will rely on the graphics card, its sound advice to update the drivers either here or are the main places to check. Also if you are not having problems on desk top i.e the computer not crashing then its worth checking the dxdiag just type that into Run and it should work, this will run a tool which will check for any direct x problems on your system.
