after playing for a while my screen decides to flash random colors and goes into power save i think it has something to do with the graphics display driver.......... also my Cod runs really slowly

What is recommended?

hey unreal welcome to the forums mate,

well it could be a number of things and yes it could be your drivers, how long have you been having these glitches, and when did u last update your gpu drivers?, remember to run a program like driver-sweeper before installing any new drivers, this removes the old drivers completely as this can cause some issues.

hmm i wonder if it could be as simple as your graphics card isn't seated correctly, may have been bumped or something......another thing could be to try running Vsync in advanced settings in-game as it could be that your graphics card is sending to much data for your monitor to handle causing screen flickers and tearing...

it could also be overheating but if it really was that id imagine your machine would shut down.........monitor your temps using something like EVEREST http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

anyway hopefully we can sort it out for you mate.

That's your GPU crashing. Have you put a powerful new video card into an older computer?

yeah ok well let us know what the problem ended up being, there is no way that should have happened from just installing new drivers......good luck mate.
