It would help if when posting a thread like this to actually mention one or two details about your PC.

Motherboad? how much ram? operating system? BSOD error code? it will be something like 0x800ccc0f and an error message,something like, IRQLNOTGREATEROREQUAL.

So if you could post a few details, it would help.
