Strange problem... - Page 2

post #11 of 29
When did you get the card? There was a mass recall on some due to a faulty transistor that caused this.

I've actually read about problems like that on other forums. Apparently it's a driver problem and mainly happens for Halo and Counter-Strike. What drivers are you running?

But it could also be over heating, not 100% sure.

@PaRaDoX

The 8800GTS's were never recalled, that was the 8800GTX's.

http://svc.com/generalcoolingguide.html take a look at this. check the directions your fans are blowin also. If they all blow in or out, then cooling in your case won't be as good as it can be. Try making sure you don't have a bunch of wires and stuff blockin the flow thru your case.

1. Is that artifacts?
2. Why is it artifacting on Oblivion and Halo and not on Counter strike, Flatout 2 and Call of Duty 2?
3. What to do?
4. Why dose it "artifacts" today but not yesterday?
