GAMES freeze/crash PC to Black Screen
I first got SC2 at release and had issues with the game crashing. I followed some forum threads and managed to get it fixed (can't remember how). Recently I got the Walking Dead game, which crashed my computer just a few minutes into the game. After a few attempts I turned down the graphics and was able to play the game. Since then every time I've tried to play SC2 it has crashed. The screen locks up, changes to some funky colors and goes to a black screen. Have to force shut down and boot it back up. Since then I have updated drivers, disassembled my PC and cleaned everything out with compressed air, changed power supplies (both Antec 750Ws), added a 2nd hard drive from an older computer, formatted everything, reinstalled everything, updated all drivers again, downloaded Live Update 5 (from MSI website to update bios...had some terrible issues with that which I won't go into for now, but according to the updater the BIOS is up to date now). I use SlimDrivers to update all my drivers.
System Specs (from MSINFO32)
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
Model - MS-7599
CPU - AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 810 Processor, 2600 MHz

GPU - GeForce GTX 285 (1GB) Installed Drivers nvd3dumx.dll, nvwgf2umx.dll, nvwgf2umx.dll, nvd3dum, nvwgf2um, nvwgf2um
I'm truly at a loss right now because I've tried everything I know to do...Any help is appreciated! Thanks!!

I would suggest some hardware checks.
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!
