I have my PC brought new, each components a few months ago,

msi 560gtx-ti (cheaper version)
2x4gb ddr3 1333 kingston
asus p8h61-mlx
corsair tx650w v2 PS

I experienced strange freezes 5 times so far, ONLY when i watch a movie BUT ONLY sometimes, i open the exact same movie 100 times and the 101's time happens the thing. BUT ONLY when I make the video full screen, never happened on a half desktop, only in full screen videos. I will see the screen sort of flicker with a pink tint to it. Strangely enough, my mouse still works and shows up fine on top of the pink screen?

Today, this last time happened when i selected 1080p on a youtube video and maximized it.

Here is a link with exactly same thing that happened to me ( as I don't have a picture to upload ).

Any suggestion will be kindly accepted.

VGA to Benq 27" - cable DVI to DVI
Latest Drivers 296.10 Geforce

I will try to change the DVI1 in VGA to DVI2, to see if the problem persist, if so, i will go to mHDMI to HDMI.

I suspect thou the VGA, but lightly.. since doesn't happen very much and only in video, could be a codec related? i use Klite mega codecs + mpc since they hit the internet.

If i had a faulty monitor the PC wouldn't freeze..

No i didn't tried older versions since the 296.10 was a certificated one i assumed it is more or less bug free.. i will try the 280 soon later, Yes I use windows on 64 bits for quite some time now, I use properly software.

Thanks for the fast answers!

296.10 seems to be broken, and all above 295.83. Nvidia are aware of the situation and working for a fix.
