Dear All, pleased to meet you.
This is my first post on the forums, i hope you can help.
My 6 month old PC has a problem, which has now been ongoing for a couple of weeks.
I can play games for about 20 minutes before strange things start to happen. The first symptom to appear is a sudden colour distortion of some objects in games, this will get steadily worses until the PC suddenly reboots. However if I manage to exit the game before the crash then the PC does not shut down and I can continue to surf the net etc.
Following a crash, and the subsequent reboot, or following exiting a distorted game; the display on the computer is all wrong. Mostly this is represented by lots of dashed lines running across the screen, these change position and shape as I open new windows. Also the text in Firefox and IE is irregular and has light and dark shades even on the same line.
Does it sound like overheating?
Any ideas what may be causing this. I've installed the latest drivers on my Geforce7300GS but with no change.
Any advice would be really welcome, especially as Battlestations Midway arrived in the post today and I can't wait to give it a go.
Thanks in advance
