Default Blue Screen


i bought this about a month ago now:
Isys EX Pro - Intel Core 2 Duo E2180 2048mb DDR 250gb HDD nVidia 8500GT 512Mb DVDRW : pc-1107

with windows home vista basic.

For about 2 weeks now, evertime i try and go on the mutiplayer of a game (like bf2 online, counterstrike, Call of duty 4 online) i get the dreaded blue screen. It says "physical memory dumping 1%" ect...

it also says at the top "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.."

Some people say the only way out is to reinstall windows, but i really dont want to do that as ive got all my files on here now.

is there any other methods of getting out of this problem?

faulty driver? Bad Ram? Ram not seated correctly? Expansion cards need to be reseated? CPU fan not cooling enough?

i might be wrong but i just didnt think it would be any hardware problems because it only happens when i go on online games. Singleplayer games work no problem

windows home vista basic
There is the problem. Vista Home Basic is jsut that. It is basic. It is know for causing things like this. Since it isnt made for networking or online gaming. It is just made for email, browsing and that is about it. It doesnt even make for a good media player.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
