It happens with every game I tried... It happens faster in CoD 4 then everything else though...

I am currently DL'ing the new CCC update, and I will see if that fixes it...
Oh I should probably state my problem more clearly
If I play a game for about 30+ mins (CoD), others are about 1 hour, then I get red squares and graphical anomolies in the game, if I keep the game on then the computer BSOD's. The red squares are plentiful and a few pixels in width. If I exit the game then the squares stay, but the computer DOES NOT BSOD. This generally happens after my GFX card goes above 70 degrees... I also notice that for a split second these squares pop up in intrevals of like 5mins while playing.
I hope that's detailed enough, if you have any questions or answers, I would GREATLY appreciate it!
Oh right, this rig has not been touched on the inside since it was built after Christmas.
Yes, bad memory can also produce a chequerboard pattern and it sounds like that is what you have: A video RAM fault.
Last ditch: Turn the fan to 100% either in CCC or by using Rivatuner and retest.
But, it's looking like you have a bad card.
If the warranty is valid, time for a RMA, if not this is a final possible cure:
This is happening with all my games, fan is at 100% and my card is currently idle at 65 degrees Celsius, underclocked about 30MHz, and memory underclock about 200... problem still occurs. My card must be defective, no?
Hi, I have a similar problem on my laptop. When my graphics card gets to about 60-70 degrees Celcius I suddenly get a lot of artefacts on my screen. No red boxes like that, just more like horizontal lines, boxes of various character, and more. At the same instant the screen freezes, the sound keeps repeating the same 0.1 seconds that was playing at the freeze, and after about 2-3 minutes the computer reboots.
Might I have the same or a very similar problem or is it something completely different?
