Just downloaded WOW again and it crashes after about ten minutes. The screen just goes black and I have to unplug my computer. I used to play WOW back in the day before i upgraded my CPU with ram and a better graphics card and it worked fine. I tried updating drivers, downloaded latest direct x. I just dont get why it would start doing it now. Any advice would be appreciated.

I recommend trying to play the game on lower settings to diagnose more exactly what is causing these black screens. It may be a thermal problem with your video card's cooling, but I don't suspect it is software because generally either 1) the game wouldn't run or 2) these errors would occur at a certain place or with a certain cue. Is there something you're doing or seeing when the game crashes?
