  1. SPECS:

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4ghz
    GPU: Sapphire ATi 4670 1gb DDR3
    RAM: 4GB total (2x2gb)
    MOBO: MSI G41M4-F

    everytime i try and play certain games, my screen turns a certain color, and the audio that was playing at the time seems to loop repeatedly. i have never overclocked anything so everything is at stock clocks.

    games it crashes while playing:

    counter strike source
    arma2 operation arrowhead

    can anyone help me figure out whats wrong?

    This is caused by a dying video card or a corrupt video card driver. Try going to AMD's support website and download and install the latest driver for your version of Windows. Pay attention to whether you have a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows
