I have had my computer for about 6 months and recently the graphics have been having some issues. It started off with little green and red pixels scattered around the monitor, so I thought it was just the monitor having problems. Then as I was playing games, the actual game was getting distorted. Now the computer has even started crashing, only when games are being played. The only problems I have outside of video games are the discolored pixels. Could my video card have over heated or something?? Please help with any ideas you may have.

Hi there

It may help if you told us what video card you have. i.e make/model, amount of video memory, whether its pci-e, agp, integrated/onboard etc.

Its possible that the cards overheating. Its also possible that you're simply pushing the card beyond it's capabilities.
You may find it helps if you lower the colour depth & resolution for game playing.
Also, go into the video card properties (control panel->display->settings->advanced & look for a setting called 'anti-aliasing'. Make sure this is set to 'application controlled'
