    Do you play any other games and has this occurred then or is it only with Warcraft?

    Also, what is the exact complete error message you see on the blue screen?

      I don't know the exact error message it just said that the Nv4_disp driver was malfunctioning on such and such line....It popped up really fast then it restarted. And my cooling is excellent it runs at room temperature 25 degrees Celsius constantly. And yes this error occurred on one other game Counter Strike Source. But besides that it's been going good.

      I'm assuming, it just happened couple of times, not some reoccurring problem?
