Default Strange Video Card issues

GTX285 superclocked edition
Windows 7 64b

All drivers and whatnots are updated.

The past couple days while playing bf2 bad company for a couple hours there are times that my screen will flash black and black lines will flash. Then it goes away.

The past two times that I have shut the game down I loose all video signal. This happened just as the desk top came up after shutting down the game. After I power down and restart everything is fine.

Any ideas of what to look for? like I said, I have updated all of the drivers / windows / game. Temps seem to be fine so I don't think it's overheating.(that should happen while in the game anyway right?)

Intel i7 920 (OC to 3.5ghz), Asus P6T Deluxe, 6G Ram, GeForce 285 Superclocked, WinTV-HVR 2250 TV Tuner, 1TB & 750GB WD Black, Windows 7 HP 64, 32" LG Display

How hot is it getting in the game? You can download HWMonitor.

If it only does this when running one particular game then you might want to try uninstalling the game completely, run CCleaner to remove all traces of the game and then reinstall.
But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard... to be the Shepherd.
