    I've been playing Warcraft 3 for about 7-8 months now without any problems or glitches of any kind until about a week ago.....i loaded the game up and created a custom game against the computer...about 2 minutes into that game my screen went nuts and there was major graphic distortion....it basically looked like a chessboard(small black and white squares alternating). Everytime this happens my keyboard locks up and i'm forced to reboot.....i've gone to the open tech support forums on battle.net's site and have had no help whatsoever....i've tried everything i can think of.....upgraded to the latest directx and video card drivers.....installed the newest drivers for my motherboards chipset......i've tried running the game in opengl or swtnl modes and it still seems to freeze on me.....i even formatted my computer thinking that it would take care of the problem.....i tried running the game in version 1.00 before downloading the new 1.06 patch and it still happens. The one thing i don't understand is that I can be in the chatrooms or play a custom map that my friend has made himself and not have this problem ever....but the second i make a custom game against the computer be it online or offline the games display will get pixelated and freeze on me. I don't run any 3rd party programs and the game is store bought. If anyone has had this problem and fixed it or still has this problem please reply and maybe we can figure this out.....it's driving me insane at this point.....even the blizzard tech support people have no clue what it is. By the way my system specs are...

    Dell Dimension XPS T700r
    Windows 98 second edition
    320mb ram
    Pentium 3 700mhz
    Geforce4 Ti 4200 64mb video card
    Creative SB Live! Value sound card

    P.S. I have no problems with any other games or using my computer in any other way.......I only have this problem when playing Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos
