Help: Crazy graphical errors in several pc games...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Since I upgraded my pc a few months ago I have been getting some crazy craphical errors in most of my games, counter-strike source is the main one.

Images of the errors attached, and system info(dxdiag)

The errors seem to occur after I've been playing the game for a while and it stays with me untill I either restart the game or change the antialiasing settings, but it seems that this is only a temporary solution, as after a while longer the error returns under these new settings.

At first It seem'd to be a temperature problem, but when I check the GFX core, it seems normal. The CPU and Mobo temps are normal too. Maybe its a driver problem? probably not, i tried rolling back my drivers and running Driver Cleaner Pro etc etc. Still no joy.

recently I have also tried Formatting (twice), various different drivers, upgrading my motherboard bios and overclocking. i did think it might have something to do with directx 9c, as the error does not occur in my dx8 games. Though i have reinstalled it a few times but still no joy.

Any help/advice will be appreciated

whoa that is really weird, try getting the omega drivers or something else from what you are using. And try it without an overclock.

Well, Have you given it a try with the resolution on 1024x768 with lower Hz?

85Hz seems a bit much to me, But its at least worth a try.

Exactly what drivers are you running for the GFX?

My best guess if its a driver issue, Download Driver Cleaner Pro, Erase all the current GFX drivers and install the Forceware 81.85's. (Great drivers for 6800 series cards.)

Hey, It could be the drivers, but a couple days ago a friend installed HL2 and had very similar errors(all the people looked like ripped apart) and fixed it by setting the textures to high quality. I have no idea what it was or why it was fixed, but it's worth a try.

That looks like a heat problem to me, and you say it only starts after a period of play, also leading me to believe its heat causing it. Or if you are overclocking you might have pushed it over your limits. Run the game windowed at lower resolution with a temp monitor program for your card running in the background and see how hot it gets while play for a while and when the errors start.
