Hi,
We recently had a power surge that coincided with me updating a number of drivers on my PC. Now since then my Rig crashes when i'm playing games, I've tried a number of games and they all seem to cause the error.

The BSOD error states a CPU memory dump and on reboot the Bios tells me the CPU temperature was to high.

My specs are

CPU:AMD Phenom II X4 3.6GHz(OC)
GPU:ATI Radeon HD 5850
RAM: OCZ Gold 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3

I have uninstalled all drivers, ensured that all files were removed and re installed them.

Many thanks

Set you CPU back to stock speeds.

If anything else is overclocked, set it back to stock

Maybe do a re-install of the OS.

What PSU do you have?
