As of today (this has never been a problem before), after I have Starcraft 2 open, both of my monitors will start to flicker and eventually leads to non stop flickering until vertical/horizontal bars come out and the audio/video both crash, leaving me to restart (the os/hardware seems to be still responsive/on however). I assume that this is a video card related issue because when my video card was overheating, it had similar symptoms. However, applying some silicon paste has resolved this relatively recent issue. Specs: Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4770 (Driver Date: 5/24/2011) OS: Windows XP 32 Bit RAM: 4gb Processor: Intel i5-750 quad core 2.66ghz Monitor 1: Optiquest Q2201wb Monitor 2: Acer B203w Resolution: 1650x1050 When I close SC2 the problem goes away, I assumed this was an overheating issue, but that's not the case. I checked the temperatures of both my video card and processor and they're both around 60 degrees celcius. I assume this is a video card problem also because since I have two monitors, if it was a monitor issue I imagine that only the faulty monitor would be flickering, instead of both. Software wise, nothing has changed since before this problem (yesterday). Hardware wise, everything's still the same. After googling for a bit, there was a suggestion about having too many things on one outlet, this may be the case for me and as of last night I recently added a small fan to the outlet to help cool the room, but once I thought of this I turned it off and the problem is still here, but I'm not sure if it needs to be unplugged. I have also installed the most recent ATI driver, and that hasn't solved it. I have messed with the vertical sync a little bit, both on the ATI Catalyst Control Center and on the Starcraft options itself, the one on the Control Center doesn't seem to have much of an affect, however the Starcraft vsync option reduces the flickering, however I would prefer not to have this option enabled, and it still flickered/froze eventually. My ATI settings are pretty default, no ATI Overdrive or overclocking of anything. I have also checked the connectivity of the monitors to the video card, though I have not replaced any cables or hardware. If I've tried anything else, I don't remember it , please ask for more details if necessary, thanks for any advice!
