I need the assistance of the oh-so helpful Tom's Hardware forum people again. My new x1950pro PCIE seems to be displaying weird 'squares' in some games, mainly FEAR, and Oblivion. I have ran ATI tool for over an hour without any artifacts. I have also tried and used google to find similar problems unsuccessfully. Here is a screenshot to better describe my problem:
Slightly off-topic, but also the video screens inside FEAR do not display as they should...
Any help is a greatly appreciated.
i have x1950pro pci-x and i get bad splat at company of heroes. http://www.sinker.co.uk/coh/BadSplat.JPG
i have 1gb ram. before playing i turn off firewall, antivirus and everything i dont need. then i dont get bad splat anymore.
RMA.its not processing the textures correctly,could be the memory on the card.Any problems with other cards?I have zero problems with my 1900gt.
just checked your mobo brand.I had a 939 same brand ,chipset caused video artifacts.check the card on a good mobo.see if its the same.
I did buy it from a local store, so I could just do a clean exchange. I doubt this makes a difference, but if I try and overclock the videocard's memory by 1mhz, my system completely crashes (The store I bought my videocard from doesn't need to know ). I can overclock the core ~40mhz before getting artifacts. Like I said, I ran ATI Tool, no artifacts came up. I did have a 7800gs in my motherboard before, but, obviously, it's AGP, and my current card is PCIE, so I have no idea if it's my motherboard or not since I'm not comparing the cards in the same circumstance. I will be upgrading to a new motherboard soon, hopefully (P5N-E). I'm guessing the best advice is to get my new board, and see if the problem persists, but I have to make sure I'm still able to return this card if things don't work out. Do you think the screens in FEAR could be caused by the same issue? I haven't formatted since my new videocard, could that be the cause? Hmm, I do have a Vista installed on a partition, I'll try it in Vista and see if I get the same problem, I'll get back to you guys soon.
