This is making me very angry...

85 Dwarf Paladin
Hi there, I just upgraded my account to Cataclysm and I got on to my lvl 80 Paladin. After I went to Stormwind City to get my flying training, my screen went black and it reminded me of when the screen would go black and the Display Driver Error has popped up. But when it happens the game does not come back on, it stays black until the whole computer freezes and then the blue screen comes on and restarts my computer. I don't know what to do. I have updated my drivers and stuff but it still hasn't seemed to work. Can someone maybe help me with this problem?

You may have to re-install the game; make sure that your game is patched to present release and launch from the WoW Launcher if you don't normally.

Also, this isn't tech support.

Are you the same person who got stuck in the lava in Ironforge and was trying to get a mage to port you out?

I have that exact same issue.

Refer to:

Long story short, it's a driver issue with Vista/Win7 mixed with GPU overheating, and these bandaid fixes may work for you. Good luck.
