I have a 9800 gt card. A few days ago my screen started flickering in games such as counter strike source, half life 2 and team fortress 2 especially wen i am being flashed in counter strike source.Im not sure its the graphics cards problem but i figured it might. I had the new driverswhich i remember ended in 270 --- (cant remember the end) and after getting an older driver (8.17.12.6658) i think it made less flashing but its still there. Maybe its not a graphics card problem, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas it would be much appreciated

So your card was working fine and all of a sudden you started to see flickers in games ?
Post your full system specs,also did you try playing with V-sync enabled ?

My 8800gt died so I rma'd it to PNY and they sent me a 9800 gt to replace it. I am having the same issue as you. Never did it with the 8800gt, but it does with the 9800gt. I will look at my video settings in the game and play with them. Post here if you figure it out.
Thanks

(sorry for the huge delay) here are my system specs : https://www.elara.ie/members/viewpwishlist.aspx?wishid=... . I have been posting on other forums, and people have suggested particular drivers, which have helped alot, but theres stil one thing left which stays the same. Here are some screenshots : http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/596941143010703277/05...

I have not tried my card on a different "rig" yet, it is not availible yet, however i have made 2 videos showing the problem. Perhaps it will help to understand the source of it. If you need another video please don't hesitate and ask. Although it may look like its barely visible but it happens in many places, and very annoying. Please watch in hd to see it fully.

Report back when you tried the GPU in another rig,if it worked fine,then we have to check other components,if it had these problems in that rig too,then it's probably defective

I put my card, into another computer but what happened was there is no PCI-E cable in the other computer. Soon I will try it in another computer where there IS a cable. However there is another problem. The computer that i used (to try my video card in) will not start up, after me putting everything back it won't turn on. there is signal, i turn it on but the screen stays blank. Maybe it has to do with it being a windows xp?I really don't know, please help, its irritating that its not my computer

Nope,don't think it's because of XP.
Let us know when you tried it in the computer with PCI-E cable

Please answer the following questions:
1. Is the PC ( used for testing your video card ) working before?
2. Was there a video card in the PCIe slot or was it vacant & the PC have only on board graphics? (what is the PC specs )?
3. Have you reconnected the monitor cable to the previous connection?
4. Did you change anything in the BIOS (to put the PCIe as priority)?
These for now...

Well the only thing i disconnected was the black power cable behind my computer, the vga, all the usbs, and only put the Wlan card in a different slot so the video card would fit in. I didn't actually disconnect any cables inside the computer, I checked that the WLAN card was in properly(although im pretty sure it should turn on without the card) and wat else did i take out? the power cable ( by that I mean this http://www.rtech.ie/itbits.ie/images/powerlead.jpg ). That IS plugged in, the vga IS plugged in, wat else could it be?

1.Yes it was working before
2. There was no video card in the slot before.Yes it is powered by onboard graphics because the vga slot leads up to the motherboard. I currently don't have the specs. But is it really important? I can can say that there is a processor at 3.2 Ghz and the mother board is intel.
3.Yes i have reconected it to the previos connection.
4.Did i change anything in the BIOS? No. I just put in the card, realised that there is no PCI-E cable, took out the card. I didn't even turn on the computer.
