2)overheating happened with my 8800gt(crashing blue screen
3)windows 7 is kind of buggy i gave me blue screen all the time so i just downgraded back to vista ultimate
1. Make sure all of your components are free from dust.
2. Passive cooler (no fan) on your card is not meant to be playing games.
3. Check your temps, i guess it's an overheating and make your card dying.
4. Do not show your email on this forums.
