Screen starts going white then blacks out when i try to play

by jdricketts2k3 / December 14, 2004 4:47 AM PST

When i try to either play games or most software i try to run that is playing outside of windows and when my computer is starting up it will go out, but once windows starts it is ok.

At first i was thinking maybe bad monitor but hooked another one up and it happend the same, could this be a bad video card? thanks
