Question about PNY Verto GeForce 6800GT, (256 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card
When i am playing games the computer freezes and all i see on the screen are black and white lines, i have installed the latest graphics drivers but the problem does not stop. Hey, i have this card for some time and it have a lot of problems, the most common is while playing a game the graphics suddenly distort - the texture colors look strange, there are lots of weird angles coming out of objects and other strange things starting to occur, then the game stops and the whole system dies and the computer restarts.. what can i do?
Your graphics card might be going bad. The GPU might be getting too hot. Power down the machine, open the computer case and inspect the graphics card. If your graphic card has a fan, is it covered in dust. Get some of those compressed air cans from walmart or any other store, and blow out the dust.
If you still have a warranty on the PC, don't open the case, this may void your warranty. Since you are posting here, I will assume you don't have one, so go nuts with the Air cans.
Also you might have caused too much damage, and might need to get a new graphic card, but try the air cans first.
