Lately when I try to play a game or watch a video (either DVD's or .flv files) my monitor will show a multicolored pattern like a carpet design, then the screen goes black and I get the “monitor going to sleep” message. Sometimes the soundtrack will go on for a little while but then stops too. If I reboot in safe mode videos run okay so I updated and reinstalled the drivers but it hasn't helped. Trying to run the Furmark burn in test has the same effect.
Can anyone offer any suggestions, or should I just go buy a new card?
