Hey guys, I have recently (it has only came on in the past month, in which I have not altered anything with my Pc with the exception of installing NWN2) came across alot of errors, or whatever you may call them whenever I am gaming. The games which, I have found out, do it are BF2,NWN2,Stronghold 2 and ES:Oblivion. Although all I do to solve this problem is save, quit to desktop then load again, it is really annoying and I'm beginning to get ****ed off at it. My current System is: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ 2.21 GHz, 1.5GB of RAM Inno3D GeForce 7300 GT (If any more info is required, tell me, I don't know much about Computers.. :confused: ) Here are some images of Stronghold 2 I have taken, They show the error which is affecting all the games stated above, although with BF2 and Oblivion, it is worse. t_untitledi_ec1bm_cc033c10.jpg t_untitledi_ec1bm_9a1ace21.jpg This is a screenshot of BF2, in a helicopter, incase you can't work it out.:P And no...It's not one of those old game jungles...It's from the pale blue sky... t_untitledi_ec1bm_8f827af2.jpg As you can see, there are thick lines of color coming from most angles, In the two first person games I mentioned, the lines appear to be coming from every and all edge of an object, walls etc. This problem does not start as soon as I open a game up, only about 10-20 minutes in, does this kick in. I have downloaded all the drivers for this card I could find, but to no success. So if anyone has any solutions, or any help, for this problem, I would appeciate any help given at all. Cheers. P.S. If more images are needed, just ask. P.S.S. A friend told me if may be my monitor, it does get extremely hot over a short period of time... Its a Belinea 101536

I woud be more inclined to think that it's your video card that is getting too hot.

Download the free program CPU-Z: http://www.download.com/CPU-Z/3000-2086_4-10518374.html?tag=lst-0-1

Run it and tell us the tempuratures that its reporting to you.

I couldn't find the temps on CPU-Z, but here are the five tabs on screen.. t_cpu2210i_c24cm_9752ac6f.jpg t_mainboari_c24cm_7bab0ec9.jpg t_memory22i_c24cm_21f30fd1.jpg t_spd2210i_c24cm_dad54b13.jpg t_cache221i_c24cm_454781d7.jpg ... It's most likely right there but oh well...

CPU-Z doesn't display processor temperatures and it certainly doesn't display graphics card temperatures.

Your nVidia graphics driver will be able to tell you the graphics card temperature.

Sounds like your video card may be overheating, theres a small chance it could be driver related as well. even if it is overheating, download the newest official ForceWare drivers from Nvidias site, uninstall all old nvidia drivers, and install the new ones.

Your nVidia graphics driver will be able to tell you the graphics card temperature.

Indeed. CPU-Z has no temp monitors at all.

Open of the Nvidia Control Panel and tell us what temps its at while your in-game. (just leave the nvidia panel open, start up a game, play for a bit, exit out quick and look at the temps)

I have a 7300GT and it usually only gets into the mid 50C range while gaming at factory speeds, and when i'm running it with a good overclock (like i usually do) it gets into the mid 60C range.

The temps seem fine, I think...These are what the screen ingame looked like while I was taken the temps.. t_untitledi_1808m_8baec387.jpg And t_untitledi_1808m_c33f08ff.jpg This is the temp chart here for the ten mins I had it running.. t_untitledi_1808m_c191a36b.jpg As you can see the temp was averaging around 50C..And as you said, that was fine.

Artifacting often signifies that either the card is overclocked beyond what it can take (ie it still works but doesn't display properly) or that it's damaged. If the problem isn't caused by overheating (which at 50C it certainly shouldn't be) you may want to consider returning it for a replacement or refund,

hmmm ive had that problem playing warcraft III... i have a radeon X300, i think it may relate to having just too much to process, too many objects or something (not that i know anything about vid cards) I just say this cuz this only happens when i play a custom game, and it consistantly happens if i play a custom game with too many units appearing in the same area of the screen.
