XP Graphics Freeze

  sage765 14:23 09 Sep 2003

I've a 2.66GB P4,1024MB 333DDR, Abit IT7-MAX2 motherboard and a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9700pro games machine, not connected to the net.Im on an island with bad internet feeds. After a recent power cut my graphics kept distorting, diagonal lines across screen during OpFlashpoint + during GTA3V weird shapes all over screen. not all the time though. Replaced windows XP overtop+drivers+Directx9. A ATI driver seemed to fix it now it just locks out+have to reset PC. device manager ses no probs, do I have to reformat, help,Oddly my Hiper420 twin fan power supply failed during another power cut and i could only replace it wth a very cheap 400w single fan generic thing.
