Black screen while playing games

Hello everyone, recently iv'e been getting black screens while playing:
Grand Theft Auto IV
Call of duty Modern Warfare 2
Call of duty Black ops
Minecraft

I have ran an overclocking test for 10 minutes and 0 errors or problems, my GPU tempature while playing games are 66-70 degrees.
I have updated the latest drivers, i have vaccum-cleaned inside the CPU, i have tried re-installing all of the games that were crashing.
My system specs are:
Proccesor: Intel(R)Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8300 2.50 gHz
RAM: 4,00 GB
Graphics card: NVIDIA Geforce GT220
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Monitor: LG Flatron W2253TQ

Also if its worth to tell, i mostly play on the resulotion 1280x720.
EDIT: This problem has not always been, it occured about 6-10 months after purchase.
I am pretty sure my fans are running well but i am not entierly sure.

You should never ever use a vacuum to clean your computer. It will ruin the electrical components on the motherboard and any other devices attached inside. Use a can of air or compressed air.


As for your error, what happens when the black screen appears? Can you still hear sound? Does the whole PC lock up?

First off, thanks for the fast reply.
As for the error, when it black screens it is entierly black for 2-3 seconds then a little blue box says "analog power saving mode" my sound loops after about 5-10 seconds.

Do you need to manually reset the computer after it goes to the black screen?

Have you checked the temps of your CPU?

What type of power supply do you have?

I need to manually reboot the computer by holding the shutdown button down for a couple of seconds.
My CPU temps dont seem to be overheating for what i know, here are the values:
GPU Temp. : 67 degrees
Fan speed: 100%
I dont know my power supply, i opened the box and checked but i didnt see clearly, all i know it is a Fujitsu, if that is what you need.

GPU is graphical processing unit aka your video card.

Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer and let me know what the values are.

As for your power supply, I need the wattage.

Can you upload a report so I can look through your logs
