can't help unless we know what the error is
is it a "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" error, a "PAGED_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" or something else?

hahaha

maybe if he started getting better grades

or maybe if his parents actually let him (he said something about them *****ing how his comp was already good enough - he spent $200+ on his 5700 ultra when it was fairly new)

ok, he says that the message is "IRQL_NOT_LESS_IR_EQUAL"

also, he says this never happens when he's playing a game (dunno if this matters)

can anyone help?
