Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I just got my computer 3 days ago and today i was in the middle of playing a game and it just shut down and when I turned it back on I was getting weared colors and then it whent to an error screen with some sort of ATI error i think the vidio card is junk!!


Answers :

Possibly...but I would try reinstalling the drivers for the card. Go to the Device Manager and try updating the drivers or reinstalling from the disk that may have come with the machine for the ATI card. It is also entirely possible, in ATI's defense, that windows may have hickuped on the driver side.
