Start of with the bare essentials on your system, 1 stick of ram, I HDD, etc....then start your system up and go from there.

It's possible you are getting a heat issue on the Video card.
I have an ATI 9800 pro that would overheat and BSOD on me. Get an 80MM fan and lay it on top of the mmory heatsinks. make sure to plug it in. Test that and see if it helps... Did for me...

it is very possible try lowering the graphics settings within game if it still freezes and goes blue screen on lower setting then something else is wrong, it is also possible that, the PSU your using is going bad or has bad rails what kind is it, if u say it one you bought with the case I would say thats the problem.

i got this from this ( http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windo...es-t43519.html ) bookmarked site of mine:

Stop 0x000000D1 or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The Stop 0xD1 messages indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.

Possible Resolutions:

¬ē Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering tools.

hope it helps...

sometimes updated drivers bring problems. try rolling back your video driver.
i had this problem with my nVidia. the new driver wouldn't let me play any of my games so i reverted back to the working one!

Default Blue Screen Of Death

You get Blue screen on computer when the error occurs, the screen turns blue, and the computer almost freezes and requires rebooting. This can happen when your computer is running in a Windows environment affected with the BSOD error, an acronym of the Blue Screen Of Death. I have got solutions to this problem.
