Weird graphical problem?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When I am playing games sometimes there is a black like that starts at the center of the screen then goes out in some random direction getting thicker as it goes till it reaches the edge of the scree?

It is really weird? How do I fix it?

yeah that sounds weird...have you updated your drivers? Are you OCd a bit too much as to cause artifacts, graphical imperfections?

Try drivers first

Yeah I have those, it only seems to do it in source games though? The only other game I have that is as demanding as source is Americas Army and it dose not do that?

Weird, might be a conflict between source and your drivers. Have you tried re-installing source?

it's a weird one isn't it. I have seen that on my 1950xt as well. usually happened when overclocked a little high or when using some of the modified drivers.
best thing can I can say is try to downclock first and if that fixed adjust your clock. if it doesn't work change yoru driver.

so in that case try changing to a different version of your drivers and you might be ok.
