    Hello,

    I bought this computer from Vibox, here is the link if you scroll down you will find all the specs. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200842874866?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619

    HD RADEON 7850 2GB

    When I play games such as battlefield 3 random dots appear on the screen, it freezes and I have to close it, this is persistent after 5 minutes of playing, how will I be able

    to solve this problem? Sometimes it also freezes on the web. It says graphics drivers crashed and recovered.

    I am using graphics drivers 9.2.0.0

    Any help you be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Danform

    Black or white dots normally mean overheating vram, but what make/model psu did it come with?

    disable firefox hardware acceleration (assuming like most people with crashing when browsing your using ff)

    use afterburner or trix and setup a custom fan ramp that runs the fan no lower then 40% and based on temp runs the fan at 100% if you hit 70c.

    seems most cases of this kind thing are heat related from my and my friends exp.

    A few of my friends have since moved to using Opera as it dosnt cause driver resets like FF has been.
