    When I try to play a video with my card running overclocked, the computer will crash and there will be a black and white pattern of lines going across the screen. But when I play games, there is no problem at all. Any ideas?

    After doing a little more research, it appears that the computer only crashes when windows media player is playing the video. I also noticed that the GPU clock speeds are set to something ridiculously low after playing the video.
