Recently while playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 my computer image will freeze up, but audio will continue. Then, the screen will turn into purple static, then yellowish green static, and then blackscreen.
I then have to press and hold the power button to turn it off and restart it. So far, it has only happened in Battlefield Bad Company 2.
Edit: Scratch that, my screen also flashed black while opening multiple videos on youtube, but then recovered and I was able to continue without shutting my pc down.
Could it be my graphics card is getting too hot? Or the Processor? I don't really know... Thanks for any and all help! Posting my computer specs below.
