Can an IP flood....?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Damage your PC if sharing internet to 360 through PC?

I was just playing some Gamebattles (related to MLG, just matches between teams and that stuff)... Well the team we were playing began to systematically lag us out... Like one of our players would lag out of the game, then another, then another, then come back and do it again, etc... It isn't our connections as we have literally been playing matches flawlessly all morning... Not to mention it wasn't just one of us, but ALL of us (from places all over the United States)...

Well right after they did this... My PC basically crashed... I have never had issues with my PC ever before, literally, not even a freeze... But right after one of the times this team lagged me out, my PC's monitor went black and my PC reset itself... Then after restarting itself, I got back into Windows and saw white squares all over my screen and then my screen flashed black and went back to normal, giving me an windows error message saying my display drivers stopped responding...

Did the IP flood thing cause this or did my computer magically and extremely crazily coincidentally decide to start having errors at the exact time the IP flood thing was happening?

Sorry for the wall of text, just wanted to be very descriptive to get a good answer...

It shouldn't have done anything to your pc. Just reinstall your display drivers and see it it is fine.

An IP flood wouldn't damage the computer like that, no. The only thing it may do is overload the nic and cause those drivers to crash, which may crash the computer again. A simple restart will be as though nothing happened. The only exception I can see to this is if the nic was already bad, then it's possible that could damage it further I suppose.
