    Hi

    I am trying to watch some video streams, my computer plays them but after about 5 minutes it stops working and the when I move the mouse there are pink strips appear on the screen and the colours are not right.

    Also if I try to convert video after a short time, anything from a few seconds to a few minutes everything on the screen freezes inluding the mouse. I normally use AVS video converteer but have tried others and other videos but it still freezes.

    I am using windows 7 and ie11, 2GB ram. AMD athlon64 X2 3GHZ

    Sounds like the PC is overheating. Video conversion will typically use 100% of the cpu, thus generating heat. When was the last time the PC was cleaned of dust and dirt?
