Weird problem with graphics in games

  1. Hi everybody

    When I am playing a game and have played about 1 or 2 minutes my computer freezes for about 3-4 seconds. When it unfreezes again the graphics are messed up. It happens every time and it happens both in Battlefield Vietnam and Battlefield 2.
    If I exit the game and start it up again the errors are there from the start. If I restart my computer the errors are gone but it all just happens again..

    You can see more info and see screenshots at

    Can someone tell me how I can fix this :confused:

    Thanks in advance

    You might want to try running with an open case, and possibly a table fan blowing into it.

    It's not quite the normal pictures for overheating, but it's the only thing I can think of right now...

    Hi EMKAY,
    To start with what sort of system are you running specially the video card?
    Alot of the time with probs like this its not enough power to the video card ,that was my problem (went from a 300 watt to a 400 watt psu) stopped most of all my probs
