Ok, I am using nvidia geforce gtx 460 and since like 2-3 months i have this problem in some video games...
I am currently using 295.73 drivers version. I know that there is 301.42 but i have red somewhere that new drivers are also but, but either way this was happening with the new drivers also. I am not sure if its a drivers problem or graphic card is bad or damaged or something... can u please help me? Here is the screenshot, sometimes tere are more of those things on the screen. sometimes when i alt+tab from game to desktop and return to the game, those black red and green errors disappear but after a while they appear again.

Pls help, ty :)

How many hours of use do you think that your 460 has had thus far? I got a gtx460 my self and it is almost two years old now but one thing that you have to keep in mind about these cards is that they degrade over time unless you mod them. The vast majority of these cards had no cooling for the power vrm and vram. What happens is that the power vrm often when the card is under full load it often heats up passed 100c for most cards even though the gpu can be nice and cool. The memory doesn't like to get hot and can show black shadows and objects when there should be colored textures.

Tell us what model your card is or a quick pic of it in your case. Without knowing which one it is put the fan at 80% during gaming as it will help keep the rest of the card at a better temp. I modded mine early on and is a tank when playing wow, all 7 clients at once ;)
