I know next to nothing about computers, but since this site is the home of the internet God and others, I"ll give it a try.
My system is a Gen5 Dell xps, 3.6mhz dual core, 512mb nvidia card, 2gigs of ram with xp. That's about all I know about it. Long story short, about a week ago it started shutting itself off and rebooting in the middle of gameplay. A few days later it wouldn't boot past the initial windows loading screen before giving me the blue screen of death. I never had any error messages until then, so I thought maybe the vidcard was overheating, or the power supply was fucked up. I replaced the vid card with an indentical one that I had to no avail. I'll try to get the chkstop codes that it gives later. Any ideas on what should I be looking for and checking?
