getting artifacts in one of my games . . .

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
while I was playing Company of Heroes earlier out of nowhere my rifleman's icon wouldn't show up, then I started getting these artifacts and lines across my screen??? It was really annoying and my computer shouldn't have ANY issue playing this game . . . .

also I don't think the card was overheating . . . the card runs high as it is (all 7900GTX's do) but it was only around 60C during the game . . . that's not too much higher than usual . . . . so idk what's really going on here . . .

also another good note is this never happens in any of my other games . . . and I downloaded the newest drivers??? so I'm really confused why this is happening . . . I don't want to have to underclock the card . . . I feel that's useless when games like FEAR and RB6 Vegas are running fine maxed out without artifacts . . .

any help would be much appreciated . . .

no didn't touch the settings . . . left it stock

I just thought, I run dual monitors should I disable the secondary? does that do anything? because I never had this issue when I used to have one monitor . . . . then again none of the other games have an issue . . . . no other games get artifacts so I don't understand what's going on . . .

lol, I really don't want to do that . . . . I just played through another game and nothing happened . . . so I have no clue . . . I did the performance test for it as well and it said i'm doing great wtih around 60 fps average . . . so idk maybe it only happened a couple times and might not happen again? lol hopefully, cause otherwise underclocking the card would be stupid, if all my other games run fine . . .

Well that is a VERY tech-intensive game, so it probably pushes your CPU for a change. OR IT MIGHT BE MULTI-THREADED, THUS GIVING YOU HIGHER cpu TEMPS.

Oops, caps, lol.
