Graphics artifacts - how to disable write combne? Tags: Graphics Cards Display Dialog Graphics Last response: September 16, 2008 4:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share DrBobIsAboutToBeginHisBongoPractice September 14, 2008 5:25:39 PM Because nvidia have disabled the troubleshoot tab when I go into the display dialog!!!!!!! Help me! I'm pretty sure that if I can get to it, this will solve all the graphics artfacts I've been having since I installed my 7600GS AGP card. When I go intt the display dialog, the troubleshoot tab is blanked out and "has been disabled by your graphics driver" Does anyone know how I can get round this? Thanks in advance More about : graphics artifacts disable write combne halister_one September 14, 2008 5:56:58 PM Usually artifacts are due to the video card overheating or succumbing to its death. It could have been defective from the beginning. I have never heard of artifacts (dot-like, discoloring) being due to the driver. Do you have the latest driver from the Nvidia site? DrBobIsAboutToBeginHisBongoPractice September 14, 2008 6:24:12 PM When I say artifacts, I mean things like, missing polygons. eg in half life 2, there are times when you can see straight through a small section of one of the characters faces. The graphics card is good and this problem has happened to quite a few people. I have the nvidia tool and I know the card isnt overheating. All I need to be able to do is to get into the troubleshoot tab in the advanced settings of the standard windows display dialog. ie right click on desktop>personalise>display>advanced>troubleshoot Related resources Artifacts on Windows - Forum Ati Asus EAH 5970 artifacts in crossfire mode - Forum Ray artifacts on 6800gt - Forum Baffling GPU Issue ( Artifacts & Crashes) - Forum GTX 560m Flickering Artifacts in all games - Forum Can't find your answer ?
