Graphics card problem (I think)

  1. Hi everyone!

    I really hope you can help me with this?

    Right, kind of hard to explain but here goes. . . . .

    I have recently gotten into playing Counter Strike (a game I am sure most of you have heard of!)

    Sometimes when I shoot (say for instance at a wall or door), little black squares appear and move slightly before dissapearing?? I really don't know how to sort it and I am hoping it is going to be a simple adjustment of my graphics card but i don't know what will need to be adjusted?

    I have an Nvidia Geforce 7600GT by the way.

    Thanks, look forward to reading the replies :D

    Hi and Welcome to Techspot!! :)

    Do you have the latest video drivers from Nvidia, and the direct X 9.0c?

    Thanks wolfram. Yes, I have the latest drivers I think (but I installed these off of the installation CD not the website)

    I'm not sure about the direct X application?? I know it is on the CD but im not sure if i installed it or not?!

    I think I will try downloading the latest driver off of the net and installing the direct X. What is direct X by the way as I have seen it on the CD but I wasn't actually sure what it was?!

    Sorry for all the questions, I'm, a total Noob when it comes to computers!

    Thanks again :)

    THIS PAGE should answer your question about DX.

    You can download the latest DX version here:

    And the latest Nvidia driver from here:

    First, install DirectX 9.0C, then uninstall your old Nvidia drivers (from Add & Remove programs, in Control Panel ;)), then download Driver Cleaner PRO, run it, select nvidia, and then click "Start".
    And finally, install the newest drivers.
