Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Games lock up on strange screen

\015 Hi! I have an Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT 256 MB PCIE graphics processor.\015\012\015\012I've had my computer for years, no problem. But recently, when playing games (Titan Quest, Left 4 Dead, and Mount & Blade), I'm getting the same problem.\015\012\015\012The screen flickers, alternating with an image that has color, but nothing beyond somewhat geometric shapes. Not quite 'undefined data', but strange.\015\012\015\012Eventually, the computer locks up, and my screen becomes frozen with the 'strange data'. \015\012\015\012Going online is fine, youtube is fine...just can't play games.\015\012\015\012I've virus scanned, I've cleaned my registry, I've deleted some stuff...but the problem remains, and these are all games I've played many times in the past with no difficulty.\015
