    Why is my game screen turning red?
    I have tried two games already and they both turn red.

    Why is this happening?

    I would have expected a horror movie video game to feature a red screen.

    But seriously, agreed with capdown.

    Thanks for replying.

    But why is this happening only when I play games?

    Oh.. only with video games, eh? My bad.

    Well, we can look at it this way: there's likely nothing you do that's more graphically intense on your computer than 3D games(?) In fact, the games are probably the only applications that are actually giving your video card a run for the money.

    Okay, suggestion two: maybe you could try downloading some updated drivers for the video card (from the video card's manufacturer website); the ones on the cd tend to be beta *at best*.

    Also, you can do a diagnosis of your DirectX configuration and troubleshoot: try going to Start Menu>Run... and typing (without the quotation marks, please) "dxdiag" and press "Okay". Follow instructions within.

    Either way (and every way) I wish you luck!

    Though it's kinda weird to quote *myself*, but..

    Possibly, you can start here: http://ati.de/support/driver.html

    ([jokingly] But hey.. I can't do all the leg work for ya!)
