    Allright, so I bought my PC about 1.5 years ago, I will post my specs at the end of my post.

    When I recently bought Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, I found out about the following problem,
    When I play certain maps online, after sometimes 5 seconds and sometimes 5 minutes my screen either looses contact with my monitor(Like its shut off), or shows me alot of colored stripes vertically on the screen, and my PC now is uncontrollable.
    Also the last sound I hear'd keeps looping, sometimes slow and sometimes quick (like sort of a screeching sound)
    I cant do anything but hold the on/off button on my case.

    I remember I also had this problem with Crysis, about half a year ago but it only happened once in maybe 10 hours playing so at the time I thought it had something to do with my crysis play disk (scratched) or something like that.

    I made a short video about what happens and uploaded it:

    I not sure, but I dont think its heat related becuase It also happen when I turn on my pc when I get home and play the game right away, it still crashes in 5 seconds at some maps, Also at a few other maps I can play for like 1-2 hours without anything happening.

    I really hope some one can help me with this : /



    My specs:

    Power Supply: 650W Coolermaster
    Motherboard: ASUS P5K
    Processor: Intel Core2Duo E6750 - 2.66GhZ
    Graphics: ATI Radeon HD3750
    RAM: Nanya 2GB GDDR2_667
    HDD: Samsung 500Gb
