GTA V launch issue 7950

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, this artifact type thing occurs when I start GTA V:


It's constantly changing, just like a TV with no signal type of scribble effect. (I have a QX2710 1440p monitor though.)
But when I start the game on safe mode, it works fine. Bioshock: Infinite works fine aswell, so the GPU is NOT BROKEN.
Can't find any fixes, could anybody help?

Uninstall / reinstall GTA V. Update video drivers.

Usually artifacts like that are caused from bad RAM on the GPU. Using your favorite GPU overclocking utility like MSI Afterburner or whatever, try underclocking the memory clock a couple hundred mhz and see if it still persists. If it doesn't persist, then you're video card IS BROKEN and you should RMA it. Sometimes in scenarios like this you might not ever see artifacting unless a particular game really stresses the card.

is your monitor overclocked? are you using a custom image profile on CRU?have you tried using another monitor/vidoe input from this monitor?

Got the latest video drivers installed, still no help. I just can't understand how can a loading screen get affected like this, it isn't even GPU-heavy and doesn't stress the card really. The 7950 is like 3yrs old now, so no warranty. Seems that the only option is to reinstall the game, i'll test that tomorrow

Nope, monitor is at stock clocks. Never OC'd.
