    Hey,

    I've been playing Battlefield a few days ago, and my machine suddenly restarted. After that happened, every game that I open up on my pc looks messed up. I can only see moving blocks of color, and can't see any of the graphics.

    I reinstalled the graphics driver and did a system restore point but it didn't help.

    My specs are:

    P4 540 (prescott) - 3.2 Ghz
    Leadtek Winfast PX6600GT 128 Mb
    1 Gb ram
    Win XP SP2

    Has anyone experienced anything like this? (Mind you that the problem only occurs in games. )

    Thanks a lot,

    Ricki

    I had an overheating issue that caused similar problems.

    I was actually also suspecting that it might be overheating because it's really hot where I live and I had system reboots occur because of this in the past. But wouldn't it only occur during gameplay? I mean, when I open up a game for the first time it's not going to cause the CPU to do much extra processing (and heat generation). I'm only opening up the game splash screen...
