Blue screen error. Help needed!
Whenever I play Call of duty about 30 minutes to an hour into the game my computer flashes a blue screen and then restarts. I disabled the automatic restart and this is what the blue screen says.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message. Disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory otions such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components. Restart your computer, pres F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

I just bought this computer and it is only 3 days old. Here are the system specs
Windows XP Home
Athlon XP 3200+
Asus A7V600 motherboard
Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 128mb
Can anybod help me out? I am not very computer literate so i dont know how to
disable BIOS caching/shadowing as the error messege says. I also downloaded all the windows updates and downloaded the latest video drivers and have Directx 9.0b. Also one of my friends also has this exact same problem and he is also using Windows XP.
I am really desperate, I bought this PC for gaming and I cant even play without getting that error.
