I have had this problem for a while now. I play WOW far too much really, and occasionally the screen will just blank out.
Sometimes it's black sometimes it's pink sometimes it's brown. What's weird is the game is still playing. I can hear the sound I can still chat with my mates. So the sound is ok and the game is still actually running. However there is just no display. The only way to get it back is by a hard restart.
I have a XFX nvidia Geforce 8800GT graphics card, 2G of ram, Intel core 2 duo 2.66, a corsair 620w PSU and a gigabyte S series motherboard model No GA 73pvm S2H.
The monitor is a Viewsonic vx2240w.
Can anyone suggest what the problem might be as I thought this system would be more than capable of dealing with intense graphics requirements.
OS is XP. The Graphics card temp is constantly 40% mainly because it's impossible to turn the fan off. Looking through event viewer no errors seem to be detected, and one more thing, this only happens while playing WOW.
Any suggestions on what it might be??
Thanks in advance.
