WoW keeps crashing to a single color, vertical lined screen.

Title says it all. WoW keeps crashing to a single color, vertical line screen. I get locked out and have to reset my PC from the case. When I hold the button it, the game comes back but 2 seconds later it shuts off to reboot. I'd like to have this fixed before SWTOR.

Here are my specs copied from my New Egg receipt.

MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
(2) Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory
XFX HD-585X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
AuzenTech X-Raider 7.1Channels PCI Interface Sound Card
OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W Modular High Performance Power Supply
Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model AD-7260S-0B
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

All case fans were replaced with Xigmateks and their thermal paste was used for the CPU.

I'm currently running Win 7 64, and my drivers are up to date. I've also cleaned out my case with a full can of compressed air.

More about crashing single color vertical lined screen
  1. Are there any other problems with the system? Does it do this with other games, screw up when browsing the internet?
    If not reinstall wow, weird bugs happen after all.
    if that doesn't work or there are other problems reinstall windows from scratch and try it then.

    If its still messed up try an older video card driver cause the bug may be there.
    Still problems, then it could be a hardware problem
  2. Same issues with SWTOR. My guess is something is defective?
