    My friends Dell Vostro 1400, with windows vista, 1gb of ram, keeps getting a blue screen and crashing when ever he trys to play a game, he first noticed this being a big problem when both of us couldnt get World of Warcraft working on it when it should be able to be ran fine under min. settings.
    Any ideas of what could be the cause of this? Or what we can do to fix it?

    Hi,

    Rule of the thumb: Update all.
    Check dell website for updated BIOS, drivers, etc.

    It also could be a heat problem. Try blowing air through cooling system to remove dust.

    If none of above helps, consider a clean OS reinstall.

    Cheers,
