Blue (blank) screens w/ 3d apps

Hello!

Sometimes (specifically when running 3d apps) the hds stop spinning and the computer goes to blue screen. Its not a windows blue screen, but a blank blue screen without any words/feedback. I have a new 'good' power supply, so I'm not sure what could be causing this.

Any ideas?

Thanks =)

Is it just the hard disks that stop spinning?

I believe so. The only other thing that i can think of thats physically moving are the fans, and yes, they do continue to move.
