go into bios settings and see if yor motherboard supports agpx8,if so then change the values,or try to disconnect the cdrw drive from within the case,sometimes when the drive is about to die it can effect other hardware on your system!

Have you tried a lower resolution,say 800x600 to see what happens?

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card.

I have recently had a similar problem with Call of Duty---that turned out to be a corrupted driver instalation.So you could also try reinstalling your graphics drivers.
