    Alright you guys, this is going to be kinda long, i need to explain the story here.

    The Problem

    What's happening is this: Whenever I try to play any game at all, when i get into the main menu, like the first menu in Warcraft3, or after i log in World of Warcraft and enter the world... my computer makes a 'click'. And after that the fans start to slow down, but in like half a second, it seems like it catches itself and the fans speed up again, but the screen is frozen. Last time this happened it went to a blue screen and i had to restart.

    What I've Tried

    My friend suggested it could be my Audigy2 Sound Card, because it was the last thing i had put into my computer. So i took that out, and uninstalled all the software and reinstalled the motherboard sound drivers, and the problem dissapeared for about two weeks.

    I've updated my videocard drivers, to the latest version. I've done a directx diag test, everything passed. I've posted this in hardware beacuse i believe its a hardware problem? But i have NO idea what the heck the root of the problem could be.

    I would think it was my videocard, but i just had the videocard's fan replaced, and while it was in, they did some benchmarks on it, now that i think of it, the problem didnt start until after the new fan was installed. Could the videocard fan be causing such a huge problem?

    I am in a world of pain here

    System Specs

    AMD 2500+

    If anyone has experienced anything like this, please post your fix's or idea's! ahhh thanks in advance.
