Wow, seriously, grammar dude. There was no periods in that at all....

Anyway... Boot into Safe Mode with Networking. Download/install DriverCleaner Pro: Driver Cleaner Professional download from Guru3D.com and also download the latest drivers for your 8800GT while you're in there.

FOLLOW THE README FILE INCLUDED. It instructs you on how to use it properly.

If it is freezing after a hour of gaming load ATiTool. Sounds like your card is about to break the heat threshold and shut down your PC overall. Which would be even worse.

i dont think it is a heat issue becasue i am getting the same blue screen freeze if it is jsut idoling after its been on for somtimes 5 mins. It is very strange saying that the hardware isnt installed properly is there anything else that could be casueing this

It says that everytime bud. The important information is the hex code at the bottom. That tells you what's going wrong. The hex code looks like 0x00000001, 0x1F0054AC etc. Check your Windows even viewer to see if it knows anything about the problem too.

IRQL is either a driver failure or a RAM problem. So run MemTest86 to test your RAM and see if you can find updated drivers.
