More about fix gpu shows artifacts
  1. Have you determined that the graphics card itself is causing this?

    Post your build
  2. Is your GPU overclocked? If so lowering the clock can help.
  3. cpu : core 2 quad q6600
    gpu : msi hd 4850
    ram : kingston 4gb ddr3
    motherboard : asus p5 g41 t mlx
    psu: trust 420w >>>>> http://www.cnet.com/products/trust-power-master-420w-psu-low-noise-big-fan-pw-5250-power-supply-420-watt/specs/
    os: win7 ultimate 64bit
    thats all i got

    16A on the 12V rail for a "420W" PSU? Not good at all.
    May not have anything to do with artifacts but definitely bad

    How old is everything?
  6. 1.5 years old but motherboard and ram is only 6 monts oldddd
  7. Do you know anyone who has a graphics card that you could try to see if you still get the errors. That way you can determine whether the GPU is actually the cause or if it is something else like the power supply.
  8. I lowered the frequencies but by this process gpu works for only week then again shows artifacts and then again i modded it's bios and it worked for me one week more......
  9. What do you mean modded bios? What did you change?
  10. Best answer
    most artifacting issues are Graphics card based issues, most of the time, it'll never and can't be fixed, you may have to get a new graphics card.

    Generally, re-installing the GPU drivers and lowering clock rates doesn't fix it, there is no other way.
  11. OTHER GPU WORKS FINE i treid hd 3870 7900gtx and hd 6850 they work fine .In bios modding i lowered frequencies and voltages.
  12. I think from the sounds of it you might need to get a new card
  13. That card is way older than 1.5 years, are you sure it's only 18 months?
  14. I think that's when he purchased it. Not when it was made.


    So Samo - we recommend that you get a new graphics card. Can you buy a GTX750Ti?

    And you should buy a new power supply. Your one is bad. Can you get an Antec HCG 520M or XFX 550?
  15. I'm still dubious you could actually buy one new 18 months ago.
  16. On somewhere like flipkart you can buy all sorts of stuff
