Hey guys. Lately when I've been playing Starcraft ii, the game has begun to blink or flicker. It locks up for a second sometimes, and sometimes it also makes units/buildings all black without detail.
The resolution is 2048x1152, and I'm using a EVGA GTX 275 FTW edition. My settings are at Ultra in the game, and my card has never stuttered like this before when playing other games set at the Max settings.
I've included a link to a youtube video of my screen while I mess around in SC. At around 30 seconds, the screen locks up, and then blacks out for a second. Sometimes when it returns to the normal play screen, the little monitor icon for input source DVI will pop up as though it was source checking or something. There are no instances of the blacked out units/buildings in this video, but several instances of the blinking/flickering screen, and the blacking out of the screen.
Hello and welcome to the forums
Like silver said,it could be a driver issue,so do a clean install of the latest VGA drivers,here is how
1_Download and install "Driver sweeper" from Guru3d.com and install
2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the driver and reboot
3_Boot to safe mode and open driver sweeper,then click on Nvidia and then click on clean
4_Reboot and boot normally to windows and install the new drivers after that you need to restart,and its done
there kind of is a way without geting a volt meter and monitoring your actual psu usage - you can burn in both your cpu and graphics card at the same time and see if that disrupts the drivers for lack of power... im pretty sure thats what it might be
so as it turns out, a number of people are having this problem as well. i've reposted the thread on the starcraft ii forums, and the conversation is continuing there in case you're interested. go there and voice out in case you're having the problem too.
