  1. I just got my computer fixed, it was sitting in my apartment not being used for 3.5 months and before it broke i had no problems with it what so ever. Now that i have it running again i cant play any game on here. Oblivion will go for about 15-20 minutes and the freeze up to a black screen. Same with BF2 and Call of Duty 2, I updated all my drivers and my power supply is enough to run my computer so im thinkin it might be the video card going bad or something. I need as much help as i can get. I play games and do my HW on here and nothin else, Im basically somewhat retarded when it comes to tech problems. Please help.
