black blotches
« on: June 19, 2009, 10:30:33 pm »
with my system I spend a lot of hours in game servers for my work, I've noticed that after a couple hours that I'm getting black blotches all over the screen that flash..

this has happened with many different drivers from the 182 to the newest out.

System Specs..

Abit IP35 Pro
Intel Q6600
6g OCZ pc 1066
PC&P 750w PSU
XFI Fatality Pro

any ideas on what would cause this?

I really need this card to work for what I do..

thank you very much..

I'm not very technical,
But Check your fans and temps, get rid of any dust build up, get riva tuner installed and check the GPU temps,
Hope this helps,

Is this a double posting ::)

Yeah like Pottypete said, check your temps, overheating seems probable as its not till after a couple of hours of gameplay that you get problems.
