running xp on quad core,
surfing the net is fine,watching youtube plus sound is fine,
but play a game and all sorts of pixellating and strange colourings happen and often the game will freeze or crash.If i ctrl/alt/delete i can stop the game and go on to surf net quite happily without reboot.
I cleared all dust out and replaced card,thinking that might help.
Is the card dying?It`s not old,only just over a year in a new pc.
well jonpaul and shadow,do you think microsoft will be a bit picky over me changing a piece of hardware....or is it when you change more than one?
I might after changing the psu still have to get a new graphics card and then I might have to buy a windows 7 os .....
