PowerColor X800 GTO 16 Black Screening

    I'm having a problem with my PowerColor X800 GTO 16, when gaming. If
    I'm playing for over 2 hours or so, then every time the card has a
    load, the screen becomes black for a second or two. This happens more
    often if I'm using higher settings/resolution in the game (fullscreen).
    After asking this question to someone else, I used ATITool to monitor
    the temperatures, and it kept black-screening on loading when it got a
    bit too high (+60degreesC). Does anyone know how to fix this, as
    black-screening is really annoying.

    try it with the case open as it happend only once in 2 hrs.
    i dont think your having that problem on a hardware problem.
    if it happend with the case open then it might be your hardware.

    get more main memory. 1 gb is nice and 2 gb may be even better
    with battlefield 2 maxxed out settings.

    Already have 2 Gb. I'm just trying to find someone else with a quick
    fix before I have to buy some more cooling.

  6. How would this have an effect. He didn't say it only happened
    in BF2.
