Recently experiencing unexpected shutdowns

#1
Recently, as my old hard drive had problems, I just got a new hard drive and got Windows 7 installed.

The main problem that I have been experiencing is that sometimes I just get BSODs out of nowhere. If I remember correctly, it always happens when I'm running a specific application (Warcraft III). However, my brother has been running the same application without any problems on another computer.

When it rebooted after BSOD, problems details were given:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

Does anyone know whats the root problem?

Yes 0x116 means a video card fault - due to a physical defect, bad driver, or wrong bios settings (e.g Plug and Play OS). Sometimes due to a RAM defect or its wrong settings in the bios. Overclocking can cause it as well.

You may wanna upload you .dmp files from C:\Windows\Minidump.


Test the card:

1. I seem to have a problem running Furmark because apparently I don't have a OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics controller

So, I ran a Video Card Stability Test I found online and received 34 as a benchmark. Do you know how good that is?
Note: the URL is Video Card Stability Test - Stress Testing & Benchmark the speed of your 3D graphics video card

2.How do I upload the .dmp files? Do you mean just copying their file names here?

By the way, thanks
