Pleeeeaase Pleeease Help Me!

WTF

I took out my video card today and blew all of the dust off of its heatsink.... after that everything has been fine, UNTIL i tried to play WoW and then BAM i hear these loud "POP, POP, POP" coming from my speakers and my monitor starts flashing like its not getting a signal from my comp, but its still turned on and everything freezes and the audio starts repeating over and over....

So I restarted and everything seemd to be Ok, but when i tried to run WoW again, the same thing happend.

Its now been 3 times and i cant figure this one out, someone PLEASE help me! im having WoW withdrawls!!!

if the video card is jacked it can cause the whole computer to freeze. same with memory, cpu, mobo.

just take it apart again and put it back together. alway make sure the computer is unplugged, and you are grounded before you touch stuff.
