    I can only tell you what happened to me. My ATI Radeon x1600 pro of one and 1/2 years died. It might be your card is, too. Maybe it's over-heating.

    You're lucky. You have time to solve it. Mine just went dead when it lost frequency. :blackeye:

    that is not the same problem, and to get a response u should post the specs of your computer as no is a mind reader.

    Try running them with a lower resolution and refresh rate.
