@Ramhound Blue and chances are it's being caused by the GPU overheating. – Griffin Aug 31 '13 at 0:40
the stop code on blue screen ?? usually GPU overheating get you freeze rather than blue screen, it hang, so it cannot display it. – user218473 Aug 31 '13 at 2:11

Well I dislike that a google search led me to the answer but this site seems to outline it quite clearly. Follow these instructions and you should be fine.

"File" menu in the ribbon , click on "Options". Click on "Advanced" tab , "Display" section You will find the "hardware graphics acceleration"
