MSI Geforce 6800 artifacting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had this card for a few months now and haven't had a problem until recently. I had it overclocked, and it started artifacting. I tried lowering the frequencies back to normal, and I sitll have the same problem. I tried to run a game, and Windows just restarts. Any idea what I can do to fix this?

Temps are not bad. GPU core temp is 43C. I had ztweaked drivers installed. I tried uninstalling them and then installing the normal Forceware drivers. When i uninstalled them, there was no artifacting. When i reinstalled the Forceware drivers, it started artifacting again.
