Computer bought only 2 days ago is acting up. Graphic-wise. *Solved.... sort of...* - Page 2

Does any body read OP posts anymore?

You're telling him to revert back to stock settings and he'll be fine but he clearly stated in his post that he was at stock settings again and his computer is still acting up.

OP, I used to overclock my old system GPU and CPU and it was a desktop, though, you can corrupt your OS with unstable overclocks.

It's odd that it's still happening even though your back at stock. I'm not sure if the GPU gurus here will recommend you to clean install the GPU drives or reformat etc....

BTW though OP, I have an alienware m14x with i7 2820, 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz, and Nvidia GT555m 3gb, all specs better than yours and it cost me $2,000+ and it only runs battlefield on medium 30-40fps average (I'd say closer to 30average) on MEDIUM graphics at 1600x900 resolution.

When I overclock using MSI Afterburner, i used some settings Only when gaming that others had used on the NBR (notebook review forums).

Everything was fine and I always revert back to normal use, but now that I have my desktop, a laptop is just never the same as a desktop... (unless you have to be portable 24/7)

If it were me and it's still acting up, I would reformat etc..but probably reinstall drivers to begin trouble shooting.

It would have been nice for you to monitor temps when overclocking so you could have witnessed what your temps were because most artificats (what you experienced) happen when the GPU is too hot.

My crossfire 4890's would Artificat like crazy when playing BF BC2 when I had them overclocked but they were wayyyyy hot (90C+) and even after I went back to stock settings they continued to do it frown.gif

Thanks. Most informative ever, yet also most depressing. frown.gif well, I'll try reinstalling the drivers. BTW, at where I live in, I could have gotton a i7 2670QM, 8GB DDR3 RAM, HD6990 2G DUAL EQUIPPED laptop for 1.5 grand. But NO~~~ I HAD to get P2532N for the same price because I 'wanted' it to be less than 2.8kg. I was SO stupid.
