Question about XFX GeForce 6800 GT, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Hi guys I have just bought a second hand NVid 6800GT I have a clean install of Windows just put on. Once I installed the driver for the card all looked Fine. I play a flight sim called IL2 1946, now when I loaded the game and played for 10 mins or so the graphics started to break up. The wing would disappear and would get odd bits of graphics appearing. Also getting bad frame rate and bitas of Lagg. I have installed and uninstalled 3 different Drivers all from N Vid and they all seem to produce the same prob. I used driver cleaner to remove any old reg files, taked the card out cleaned and even put new compound on the heatsink. also changed monitor lead and installed new monitor driver. To me it looks like i've been sold a burnt out overclocked faulty card. Just wanted to know if anyone else had a possible solution or comments regarding this problem. Cheers for now Mike
Well, just for kicks... It's a heatsink and not a fan on there? Maybe when playing games, open the case, put a household fan on to circulate the air especially on the videocard. Heatsinks are a temporary replacement in case the fan goes out on the video card. I use heatsinks as a quickfix for video cards at my job...but they aren't playing games on the PC, so the video cards aren't really going to heat up. Yeah, it does sound like a faulty card, but maybe the above tips will allow you to still play games with the card.
