post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
ok im new here yada yada but i gota a problem with my graphics i think. i got a bfg 7300 oc and i had to reinstall it on my computer recently, but i couldn't find the cd so i went to nvidia.com and downlaoded their drivers. everything seems to be good execpt when i try to open ANY game, my computer will make the loading sound but nothing will pop up, for example with steam it'll say its connecting to my account then it'll just disapear and not load. *** is going on?

we need tyour specs at the bottom to give a better suggestion. Try going to the user cp up top of the page, might give a bit more detail. But from here, it looks like a driver issue still.
