Sounds like your video card may be overheating. Check to make sure all fans in your computer are operating properly.

All my fans are running fine. I have one on the side, one on the rear, and 2 up front. I really dont know what to do. I have a thermo on the front of the case but i think that only records the cpu temp.

it might just be the video card dieing, or overheating,
if you have a nvidia card , download the latest drives and Ntune , with ntune open up the videocard overcloking page and on the bottem of the page it will tell you the temp of you video card, and you can control the fan,
hope that helps

You need to click on "Monitor temperature levels" under the 3D Settings section to see what your temps are.


If I'm not mistaken, you fan control should be set way higher than 0! Turn that sucker up.

Yea that temperature is way too high. Set the fan up much higher than 0. I'm surprised the auto had it set down that low. It's usually up in the 30 - 50% range.
