I never get black screens or anything but both Mass Effect games sometimes cause the squiggly lines of death and require me to reset my computer. I have no idea why this happens since it only happens with Mass Effect 1/2.

My best guess is that they're using a modified version of the Unreal Engine and they didn't do too well of a job modding it.
