Windows 7: Screen flicker, witk Kernal mode error

Screen flicker, witk Kernal mode error

I have had my computer for a while now and it has worked like a charm. A month or so ago I started getting weird screen flicker and video issues when I play world of warcraft. This only happened with wow. I would play in windowed mode and I would see the rest of the comp display be fine while wow flickers and is distorted. This remained regardless of video settings or mode of play. Then it stops and I get the dreaded "kernal driver stopped responding and has recovered." message with no improvement in conditions.

I read about nvidia driver issues, heating and temp issues, windows 7 issues, bios issues and others that have caused similar problems to other users on these forums. However, the fix for me then was a registry fix of some kind. I had to go into regedit and delete a problem segment. After that, it worked perfectly.

The same problem just started again. Unfortunately, I cannot remember where I found the solution. Does anyone know what I am referring to in this regard? I am not an expert by any means but I know the fix I described works for my situation and am looking to find it again. My system specs are in my bio. Thanks for the help!
