Ati 4870

When ever i play games about 10 minuets in the screen just freezes with lines down it then after about 20 seconds goes black then purple?

If i don't play games its fine any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks

  1. What's the temperature like on the 4870? Have you cleaned out the dust recently?
  2. Could be a heat issue. Does the whole system crash or just the application?

    Also try monitoring software like HWmonitor, run it, play a game where the problem happens and report max temperatures of both the GPU and CPU.
  3. about 59c on auto fan temp 45% speed about 45c 55-60c in games
