My system is stable, no problems. Never had a blue screen until today.

Firstly, the problem.

I play WoW, no problem there. Other games like FreedomForce 2 and various Steam games are fine too. I recently bought, Quake Wars and FEAR (the plat col, with the xpacs). Now when playing those two games after a certain period (don't know exactly) it starts to artefact, I can then alt+f4 the game but in turn that causes my pc to restart. Now, the first instance was with Quake Wars, which I saw the blue screen and got the recovered from serious error upon restart. FEAR did not display a blue screen, nor did it display the recovery message upon restart.

I have done some searches on Google, and I figure vista/video card may be the issue. But my system is fine, applications run fine, WoW and the other games mentioned run fine. Hell even video playback is fine.

My spec:

Intel Core2Duo e6400
Sapphire Radeon x1950pro (latest drivers as far as I'm aware, but the are both old games and the drivers were updated well after release. WAY WAY after release of FEAR)
2gb ddr2 ram (cannot remember brand)
Vista Home Premium 32bit

If there is anything that comes to mind, I'd be most grateful for any advice.
