I was happily playing Requiem when the screen froze then progressively got more and more garbled.I had to switch of the power to shut down. Several tries to reboot resulted in the same garbled picture from the game appearing on screen and everything locking up. I managed to restart in safe mode and uninstall the graphics card and can only run the pc with the onboard mobo graphics, so crappy refresh rate etc. The power supply was replaced last year so cant believe its that. I suspect its the nvidia card (7600gs 256mb) as I have been experiencing some 2 second freezes when starting the game and some games would not run after a few uses.If you wizards out there think its the graphics card, what is the best replacement bearing in mind its an old HP pavillion micro atx pc running on a swapped mobo (HP said it was shot so I replaced it then found it was the psu) and 400w psu and not worth spending much on.
Looking forward to some replies, however drunk they may be due to it being pissup season.
