Voltage or Codecs Problem?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My graphics card or codecs is doing something weird, sorry I do not know much about graphics cards...

When I play a game, no problems what so ever!

When I play ANY video it will melt sometimes, the video..

Imagine a checkerboard where all the boxes suddenly move around overlay each other, the picture is still normal size but everything within is garbled.

It looks like either a virus or bad video codecs, and it does this even after a fresh install of windows (wiped the hard drive, destructive wipe)...

reference core=783MHZ shader=1566MHZ mem=1804MHZ V=0.962V <<< This is where I'm at (stock)

Any help?

make sure the driver is up to date, and if not, do a clean install.

Also try to update your codec suit, and get the k-lite for example if you don't have it.

A 0.2 added volt is usually more than a bit. But depends on what you did, or how much you put it through.
If in games it runs fine, there shouldn't be any problems with the card in videos who.

Found This Post That helped me decide it wasn't a voltage problem.. The voltage bump I did was VERY temporary (like only long enough to do a benchmark), I'm pretty sure I didn't damage the card.

I've got the latest driver, just did a fresh install, it could be the videos!!! <<<Didn't think about this, because sometimes a video will play with 0 problems....

I guess I should verify this...

UPDATED: Well I suppose it's the video, as a fresh copy of the video had no problem.. :/

Could this be a data loss issue then? (like bits of the video becoming lost?)
