Can anyone point me in the right direction as where to look or how to troubleshoot my graphics card. It works fine for around 30 seconds when I play any game and I get normal frame rates but after that 30 seconds it just fails miserably. Attached image is related. That is it failing in a Counterstrike source stress test. :thumbdwn:

Sidenote: I also right clicked on My Computer and went to manage to check my event viewer and under the system logs I've got a few Fault Bucket errors popping up. Not sure if they are related.

Does this happen on lower resolutions?
Checked temps with Hardware monitor (http://www.cpuid.com/download/hwmonitor/HWMonitor_115.zip)?

It's never done this at the resolution I use (1920x1200 on a 24inch LCD). I went in my game to try a lower resolution and right when I'm ingame the screen is impossible to navigate due to the graphics being messed up. I can't even do the stress test in the game I test with.

The temperature shows 58c to 60c.

[EDIT]
I tried playing some 1080p bluray movies and regular movies as well and the same problem happens to them. -_-

Nevermind guys. I just said "screw windows xp" and installed windows 7 ultimate and everything is working fine now.
