I think it is my video card and MB BIOS at least. Anytime I go into a game, especially Quake III games, it can take 30 seconds to 2 minutes, but it will always happen: the screen will get a bunch of different colored blocks on it. I am not overclocking the video card right now...but I am overclocking the M/B (GA-8IHXP). I lost my BIOS settings and I used to O/C the 1.8 P4 to 2.4. I reset the BIOS to O/C to 2.4 again and that part seems to work fine...however I cannot seem to figure out what I need to set to get the video card or whatever is causing this to happen fixed. The card is a gainward ti4200.
Have also posted this under video cards...any help is appreciated.
check your memory settings while overclocking, a had a g3 that would get real wierd if i messed with the memory timings at all when overclocking,
rma the card.
my ti4400 all of a sudden started that crap, i called set up an rma, they sent me a few cards that werent any good, one that i wouldnt except although it worked, and in the end thay sent me a ti4600 brand new!!
if the hardware isnt working and you havent burned it up overclocking it or tweaking the fans/ heat syncs etc... just rma it.
