Usually my games run fine, up until recently. This generally happens on mmos, certain areas of the map will occasionally cause the screen to start flashing, stops, no incident. If I move the camera directly to the spot I was getting screen flashes, I get a black screen and the computer gets put into a very low resolution mode, causing me to restart. If I restart the game in the low resolution mode, I get an error saying I should make sure my drivers are updated and directX 9.0c is installed.
The first thing I did was update my video drivers, and I currently have DirectX 9.0c.
The second thing I did was set WoW at a lower resolution, but that didn't work either...

And I'll throw this in too!
