Fans go full blast and computer freezes in MvM

I've been having this problem recently, and it only happens in MvM in TF2. I've got a 2GB XFX Radeon 6950, and randomly during the game the GPU fan goes full blast and nothing is displayed on my screen, So I'm forced to hard reset my computer.


I've dusted my computer with an air duster and it still occurs.

TF2 is a very good "stress test" for computer hardware. I'm guessing your video card is about to fail.

Try running in dxlevel 80 or lowering graphics settings?
