If the wierd noise is cooling fans ramping up prior to the blue screen, it could be due to heat. This could be the result of dust clogged cpu or gpu coolers. If the wierd noise is a very high pitched squeel, it could be a ferrite choke in a power circuit in the psu, motherboard or graphics card. It could also be your memory or hard drive. Lots of different things can trigger the blue screen of death. Is your computer, or any of its components overclocked? What operating system are you running and list your specs?

It sounds like your graphic card or cpu is overheating. But i do find it strange if you can play more gfx intensive games.

It can be other stuff, but those 2 are the usal problem when you get the prevent damage msg.

Did you reinstall your heatsink using this thermal paste recently? If so, that may be the cause of your problems. Watch some youtube videos on the correct way to apply the thermal paste. You want to use the smallest amount necissary. Too much can restrict thermal conduction. Also, the heatsink must be securely attached to aid in conduction.

Try downloading SpeedFan, or some similar diagnostic tool, to see how hot your GPU is running and whether your PC is stopping to prevent thermal damage.
