9800 GT screen Artifacts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, I recently built a new system and bought an Geforce 9800 GT 512mb. As I began to play games I noticed some of what i thought were artifacts.So after testing I returned it and got a new one. and it's still doing the same thing. When I used a friends 7600 gt while i was waiting it didn't artifact at all and was fine. But when I use the 9800 it will start it again. Sometimes not at the start but when I alt tab it usually does it. Though, when I run it in window mode I dont seem to have the same problems. Also, after putting in the 9800gt my comp seems to freeze up at random times when im closing windows ect. Any suggestions??? I'm Stumped.....Here's a pic of what it is doing

Driver issue? You could try reinstalling the drivers for you card. Is this happening in all your games, or just this one?

It sometimes messes up in WoW, but mostly CSS. I've tried using different drivers but it doesn't seem to make a difference

Reformat your OS and try again. If that doesn't work try a fresh xp install. You could send the card back for a second RMA, but I am thinking at this point it is probably something else.

I gave it a shot and it seemed as though it worked, I ran CSS for the night with seemingly no mess ups. but then i got this at the load up screen.

Then I exited out, went back in, and it was fine. I can't figure out why it does it randomly. And when I exit out of programs it seems to freeze up, but i don't seem to be having any problems with WoW atm.....I'm confused
