Tell us the PSU and graphics card model. Maybe your power supply is not strong enough to handle the graphics card when it runs at full load.

Replacing video drivers with the latest available versions may help.

If that still doesn't solve it, try replacing the graphics card.

I apparently have the latest drivers yet the problem persists. Is it possible there are left over drivers from previous versions or my last video card?
