  1. Guys i bought a nividia geforce 8500gt about 6 - 8 weeks ago as my computer was having heartattacks and getting diagonal lines across the screen whilst playing World of Warcraft... Since i have obtained the video card, it has started blue screening at least twice a night but only when playing w.o.w... Does any1 have any ideas on how to fix this problem. I am getting to the stage where i want to throw my computer out the window and smash it with a sledgehammer


    any assistance would be appreciated. I have had the card checked and have been told the card is fully functional. It only blue screens whilst playing wow.

    Getting rather frustrated with this computer atm. any assistance will be appreciated. I am running windows xp on a Optima comtputer, amd athlon(tm) 64 processor 3200+, mmx, 3dnow, ~2.0ghz, 1024mb ram, windows xphome edition (5.1 build 2600) i hope this helps you to help me fix my problem
