    ...How do I find out what's wrong with it???
    ..It recently started doing that after I installed a new video card and a software game....
    ...Can anyone give me any good reasons why it's doing that?????

    It would help to know some of the specs on your system; e.g, Operating system, size of hard drive and amount of RAM (memory). If you do not know these, download "BelarcAdviser" and follow instructions. Much info will be provided.
