    Hello there,
    I've got an issue, I think it's the second major one in around 3-4 months of W7 use.
    On one Profile my Graphics have failed, not completely but enough to be an issue for use.

    ISSUE:
    The Graphics have failed.
    Everything has reverted back to Windows Basic, but with everything slightly worse
    (MSN meesnger has turned itself red irrespective of the fact it's set to black, the Desktop image has turned brown despite the image being green)

    SPECS:
    Build: 7000
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 4.4 GHz
    GPU: nVidia 8500GT
    RAM: 4GB Ram
    HDD (on that Partition): 139GB

    I don't know what it was. On the highest resolution (1680 x 1050, my monitor can't handle more) the Color went weird.

    I've got a three partition system, and the other two seem all good.

    If your specs are not a typo then the fact that you're overclocked so high could be causing system instability issues.

    Nothing should be overclocked...

    I don't know how to overclock and, seeing as how they didn't reformat an Old HDD and gave me the wrong GPU, I'm willing to bet the company that sold me the Comp. didn't either.
