Practiclly the exact same thing happened to me. I used to have an mx 400 (quite a card there huh wink wink) and i am a big halo fan. So i was playin halo on this thing, and all of a suden the comp crashes on me. I reboot and my system was runnin fine, went to run halo again, and it ran fine to the loading screen. But once i got a game up and running, all hell broke loose. It would shut down in a matter of seconds after freezing, or the colors would be all screwed up and it became master cheif and the technocolor dream coat. So i got tired of this, because i knew it was the card, went out and got my radeon. Once i bout the radeon though, i took the mx 400 apart and learned that i had totally melted out a transistor deally, and partially melted part of the gpu. Not bad for my first meltdown if i do say so myself.
