You need to look for problems in this order:1st=graphics card,seated correctly?see if there are updated drivers from the makers website? 2nd= ram memory,again is it/are they seated correctly? if you have two modules is one breaking down?try removing one at a time (don't forget you must have a module in the first slot). 3rd= it could be the motherboard breaking down (worst option as it means a new one)there is very little that you can do to see if it is the mobo..hope this helps..

Looks like i have the latest driver for my Graphiics card, Graphics card isseated properly, i've already checked the RAM. Therefore the problem is either software or the motherboard, i'll try the software, how do i check the motherboard for faults without sending it away to be tested.
Could it be conflicts at all, how could i check?
Thanks.
