Right click My Computer, then Properties/Advanced/Startup and Recovery, untick 'automatically restart' in System Failure. Run your game that crashes the PC and you should now get the BSOD with an error message. Post here for more help.

when i have taken off auto restart and then try to run the game it works for approx 30secs and then the screen just goes messed up and the pc freezes then i have to reset, could it be the graphics?

What game is it?

Do it do this on any game you try to play?
If so I think it could be something to do with your graphics card.
Try relacing it if you can with an old one or whatever to see if that solves the problem.

The answer to two questions is 1..the game was rome total war demo.. and 2.. since checking, yes it also happens to all my games irrespective, i will try and put back my old graphics and see what happens
