I left a message yesterday about my graphics card regarding when playing games it flickers allot. I dont think it it he graphics card because the graphics are fine in windows xp. I have now changed the fan on the cpu took the soundcard out and fireware card out. The games are still flickering. I presume it can only be the CPU? I took a look at it and it was very hot even with a new fan and this computer is probaly around 4 years old. Does anyone think it could be the CPU? Ow and I updated all the drivers for motherboard, sound and graphics.
