Most notably what happens, is it looks like the visuals are being run together.....such as...a roof of a building being streamed down to the ground. Also there are large portions of just blank/black areas.
Here is a picture of what I am talking about.
If there is a way to fix this without spending the money on new components (I just wrecked my motorcycle and have all my insurance bills to pay also, so my budget is very low right now lol), it would be greatly appreciated. I will also add that it does it on my brother's rig, which is primarily the same build.
Okay, I've re-installed my drivers a handful of times to try to fix it. My friend had told me he thought it might be overheating. Now that I recall, the heatsink/fan didn't seem too stable the last time I checked. I'll take it off and put some fresh thermalpaste on it and get a cooler soon.
Thanks a lot
EDIT: Also, I've noticed it usually acts up later on in the night, after a few games and such.
That's definitely artifacts caused by overheating. I got them sometime back on my 4200 (only mine were multicoloured). Removing the HSF, cleaning it up, reapplying AS and remounting it cured my problem and should work for you.
Awesome, thanks for clearing it completely up, I noticed the amount of AS was so small that I couldn't believe it even ran, I also tested it by running a box fan into my computer while playing. With the game running, the artifacts would appear, and eventually either disappear or lighten alot...thanks alot guys for all your input, greatly appreciated.
well in case u still searching for info, black triangles are often caused by overheating but not the gpu processor its the video memory, did u change the hsf for an aftermaket one? make sure ur card its cooling the ram.
ps hope u dont even read this becuase you are playing with no issues
