    It could be a heat issue if you didn't get the termal paste just right or if the heatsink/fan isn't sitting perfectly square on the GPU. Have you checked to see what temp your videocard is at? Even the software temperature information should give you some idea of how hot it is ... mine is currently 53C.

    Temp probes should not be placed between processor and heatsink. The gap will cause major overheating. Just place it as close to the edge of the processor as you can. You may not get a perfect reading but you will certainly know if the temp is going up or down.

    1 scan your system with anti viruses or spy ware.
    2 re-install your graphic driver. from original CD.
