I get texture crashes on and on, they mix up and after playing a few seconds further, they mix up even worse. colors everywhere... no matter what i do, i cannot change it.
my board is a asrock 4coredual-sata2, which has in bios the option to change the main graphic card slot from pci to agp, which i did. i also changed that other option, where you can choose some other thingy (i'm not sure how it's called, has something to do with the memory or so... i am able to choose between 32 64 and so on up to 1024.
the funny thing is: it happens NOT all the time. sometimes i can play like for hours and there will not happen ANYTHING. but then, wenn i quit the game, wait a few seconds and then play it again, the thing starts over again.
my power supply is 550 W. i really don't know what to do, after every try i get disappointed.
I'm sorry if there occure some misunderstandings in my text, but i'm not that good english writer
I had this same Problem..ASUS 9800GT.It Happened when i play F.F.O.W...and BF2......but not on any other games..(Americas Army...Need 4 Speed..etc)...i turned off the Physx and whola...no problem no more.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they migh be faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
hi im josh in cebu phils. Friend your problem is a common problem of a computer hardware which is the video card.Your graphic card could not support higher graphic games thats why it crash. To solve this problem upgrade your graphic card. use 256 or 521 or even higher graphic card. Try also add more memory so that it will work better. good luck hope i helped you.
The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running. If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.
Good luck rohit1987!

Sorry for the bad news, but you've seem to have witnessed a graphic card meltdown...
During games, cards get quite melting hot! If there's a little problem or inefficiency in the card cooling system (Active Fan or Passive Airflow) Your card will simply melt a few little contacts, enough to produce what you saw or even worse!. (Basically just in the graphic 3D render portion of the board, thats why you could still see windows some times but Aero (3D) started glitching later).
If you wish, you can verify this at your own risk opening up your case and placing your finger on the free corner of your card and bending/arching it a little to the sides when windows or your games are running... It may restore contact at the melted away points for a few seconds for you to see, but won't repair it, you'll maybe see how images get better or worse with the bending, proving the meltdown situation.
Return your card if you can or buy a new one, before the crashes mess up your windows. Buy a new one from a good manufacturer and clad with an elaborated cooling system, if you plan to run 3D heavy games, stay away from the weird branded, cheapest or heavily discounted cards are usually the ones most prone to fail this way. If you go ATI, buy ATI made cards. If you go NVidia, buy BFG for example.
does it have a fan on card if so is it working or is heat sink etc blocked by fluff and dirt if so clean it try again. this sort of thing happens to cpu,s as well I regularly remove and clean fans and heat sinks
