Every 30 seconds or so my screen will flicker black and return to the game or compeletely alt-tab me and I either have to quit d3 through the task manager or it returns after 10 or so seconds.
I have Dual GeForce GTS 250, and I updated my video drivers.
Same problem for me with a single GTS 250 card. The game will periodically freeze up and then go black for a few seconds before resuming to normal. About one out of five of these black screens will alt tab me to my desktop and then bring me back in 10 seconds later. I even blue-screened once. I have the most recent drivers. It makes the game unplayable.
I also notice this problem with Skyrim and The Witcher, but plenty of other games such as WoW, SCII, Arkham City, etc. work perfectly fine.

Yeah, my game will just freeze up, you can still hear the music playing, then it seems to run real fast and "catch up". Most of the time, when the freeze stops, I am dead. I ran in windowed mode, and I could see the (Display driver stopped responding and has recovered) message. 9800 gtx+ here, too. PNY.
Trying something, will let you know momentarily.
*Edit* Turned off V-sync via the nvidia control panel, so far, the game is running much smoother, and has not black screened for the last 5 or so minutes.
*Edit #2* Never mind the above....it worked for a bit, but just did it again as I gained a level.

So.. when I play D3 my screen turns black and stays that way.. can still hear sound but cant see anything. Video card issue or something else?
edit; I've never had issues with WoW
