Hello everyone :D 

I have this problem where i play a game for a short time this happens:
it happens with TF2 mostly,java games as soon as i launch them.
The screen goes black and then some white vertical lines appear for a second and if i dont Ctrl+Alt+Delete the monitor says no signal(like the computer is off) but the sound is still normal.
When i close the game that caused the black screen the color quality gets set from 32-bit to 16-bit
I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 with DirectX 9.0c.
The drivers for my graphics card are up to date.
Specs:
Cpu:AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5400+
Gpu:ATI Radeon HD 3850
RAM:2 GB

Can anyone help me solve this,or i need to get a new graphics card?

Thanks in advance.
