    Hey,

    My video card (Ati radeon x700) has a directdraw problem.

    Games like WoW, CS, etc all reboot my computer, however if I start WoW with the -opengl in the shortcut, it doesn't restart.

    Is there anything I can do to extend the life of my card, or is it just dieing and I will need to buy a new one?

    I have a 550 PSU, which I thought was the problem at first.
