These are my specs. I've been having troubles with the games that I play.

For whatever reason, when I exit out of any game, it freezes my computer, to the point where I can move my mouse, but everythings locked up, and I have to reboot. This has been the case for months now. I originally thought it was my display drivers. I have the latest, and I tried the previous driver versions, but its not taking care of the problem, and I don't want to have to rollback my graphic card drivers even further, this just shouldnt be happening in the first place. Can I possibly get some help on what this could be?

Ok, when you exit a game, is it just a black screen with the mouse pointer you can move, or do you get back to the desktop? By reboot do you mean a Windows shutdown/restart or holding in your power button on your case?

Have any games worked correctly ever? Do other apps (browser, etc) work correctly? Let's start with these.
