You could try Display Manager in Control Panel, see what its like with Graphics Acceleration Turned down, there is a slider in there to do it

Have you read the thread at the link I posted?

If your overclocking then turn the CPU back to its normal settings.

If the manufacturer sent it overclocked and said it would work -- and it doesn't then send it back.

I bought this pc from ukgamingcomputers and they overclocked it for me so i will talk to them. Also i dont like messing around in the bios and other things. I will try to turn down the graphics acceleration as you said.
