Hi. Got a big problem here, or at least it seems big to me.

Whenever i try to do somthing that has something to do with the graphics, like playing a game all the fans go up to maximum speed and after a while the computer shuts down (probably because it's overheated).
This never happened before, and i have not changed any harware or anthing like that.

There is also another problem (and this is also a new thing that i've never seen before) that i think somehow are connected with the first problem:
The monitor suddently becomes covered with different colors so that you're not able to see what you're doing but it still runs normal behind the colors. I dont think this is a "bad monitor" ishue beacause i have tried with different monitors and the same problem occures.

I have the latest catalyst drivers to my Medion Radeon 9800xl graphic card and i made a trobleshoot that says that it could be outdated bios but i dont think so.

Please help me! (Im from sweden so try to disregard my spelling mistakes)

i would say you've probably got some temp issues...have you cleaned out the inside of the computer lately? dustbunnies can cause this

also google for speedfan and downlad tht...run it while you do some thing on the computer that will heat up the card...and report the temps
