Graphics card problem

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?

Re: graphics card problem

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.

It might be a case of simply downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card. Go to and click their download drivers button. Then select your card form the list and download and install the latest drivers. Heat could also be an issue. Ensure that the cooler is clean of dust and that the fan is running smoothly. Install additional fans in your chassis if possible, as graphics cards tend to give off the most heat in a computer system. Also clean the gold fingered connectors of the graphics card with tissue paper. Set the graphics of the game down a bit, it is possible that the card is not able to cope with the load it is set to run at. Reducing the graphics may help.

Take care!

Game crashes

Has it just started doing it?

if so have you changed/installed anything?

Check the actual card to make sure the fan is still spinning on it

other than that check the caps on the card make sure they are not blown...

Graphics card problem

It sounds like the card is overheating during play. If your video card has a fan on it make sure it is turning. If it does not have a fan then you may want to look into adding some more case fans or larger ones.
