So when I boot up my computer these blue dots appear all over my desktop, if I scroll over them they all dissappear (you know like when you group multiple items on the desktop) it only happens when I boot up the PC and it doesn't always happen, and it's not on the login screen, only on the desktop.

I did overclock my video card before but it's not overclocked now, and I geuss it has gotten hot some times, I think I remember seeing it hit 82C once, but now it's 65C under load and 50C idle, and my second video card is always in the 40C's underload.

I also have two video cards in crossfireX, they are ATI 4830's, and they are practically touching each other, one of them get's pretty hot some times 60-70C nothing above that.

What could be the problem?

82 degreess is totally fine.

I think its your display driver having issues.

Rerun the installer form ATI and uninstall ever display driver and reboot. then reinstall form scratch. you should be fine after that.

Alright, I think maybe I screwed it up from overclocking?

Although EVERYTHING in game is perfectly fine, been playing crysis 5 hours straight today and not one single glitch, only happens on startup on desktop.

Will reinstall drivers.

prolly not overclocking...

if windows is acting weird and games arn't, that s a sign that something deep down on the windows side of the driver is wrong.

tell us what happens after a reinstall.
