ok 1st thing 1st here are my specs

2gb ram
windows 7 32 bit
nvidia 8800 gt
intel e8400 3.0ghz

ok my computer display looks fine and works fine until i play a game. Sometimes this happens is when i play the game with the details set to high the screen flickers and suddenly turns black.And then the screen comes back and windows says Driver stopped working. I used real temp and here are the info i got. On averge when im not doing anything graphic heavy it's around a 50degrees celcius average, When i go play a game i guess the averge become 60-65 degrees. All my drivers are up to date. Is this a sign of a bad graphics card??

first thing that comes to mind is yes bad card, however, it could still be a driver problem-sometimes the latest dont always work. try rolling them back. Also, what type of PSU are you running? a weak PSU can cause issues like this as well.

well your power supply should be sufficient, and its not running to hot which it would be if your PSU was weak. Id say its either a bad driver or a bad card. Id roll back the driver, and if that doesn't work uninstall and reinstall it, and if you still have the problem, look at replacing it.
