Yesterday whe i was playing BF2:SF I noticed that there were a bunch of black spots and flickering across the screen. I tryed changing the video settings to a lower postition, but no change. I tryed it in another game just to see and i think i was getting a little of the same thing. And the thing that makes me mad is that i just got my video card back from the manufacture after sending it to fix it. unless this isn't the video card. i'm going to try it out today after school to see if the problem persists, mabey i just needed to resart my computer. any ideas? suggestions?

What you described xactly fits the description of aritfacts.

Your card is either

1.) too hot
2.) dying
3.) faulty, electrical-wise

Either way, that's just wrong; take it back in for repair, and hopefully this time around they will actually do something about it.

What company, btw?

Nope it's not overclocked. It should be set at normal right now.

take out some of your ram, try it with 1 at a time and see if it is your ram...

Well, I'm not going to be able to do anything tonight. I need to borrow a monitor from someone. and if it's necassay, there's a shop i can take it to near me that will check my system for $35. I'll probably do that just so i don't screw anything up. and the worst thing is, i just sent my video card to visiontek to get it fixed and now i'm having trouble with it again! a week later.

I'll get back to this thread tommorow afternoon.
If anyone else has any input please share.
I really need some help.
