8800GT Atrifacts/problems in Vista

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got a new 8800GT and I have been having some probs when playing Cod4.

*THe drivers are up to date

At random points the PC freezes with artifacts on the screen requireing a hard reset. I had this problem with an older 8800GT and RMA'ed it. Could it be that vista is causing the problem???

also- The temps are fine, as I am using the AKIMBO cooler.

I've had the same problem with COD4 with multiple video cards and set ups in XP. There are a number of members at the infinity ward forums that have been having the same issues.

I don't think its your video card.
