Hi, Any half-demanding game (which previously my gfx card had no problem with) is now getting lots of errors. The best way for me to describe them is as mono-colour shapes, often protruding from moving objects in the game. For example, I play a lot of Civ and the workers will often develop long spikes out of their arms, stretching right across the screen. Or sometimes, there are blocks of large pixels of different colours. These issues are annoying but sometimes the issue will make the game unplayable, for example sometimes most of the screen will go black or there will be a huge shape emerging from the scenery. Below is an example from the Medieval II - Total War Demo. I ran 'HWmonitor' and the max temp for my gfx card was mid-70s which apparently isn't that high. Someone else mentioned it might be the GPU, and I think that wouldn't be worthwile fixing (?). I've only had the card eighteen months. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to get a new one, because I want to get one in time anyway. I'm already struggling to run some of the newest games (Crysis and the Call of Honour expansion, at least). I'm rather lazy so if its looking like its not fixable then I might just go ahead and get a new one rather than attempting a series of fixes and/or tests. Thanks for reading and for all the good advice I know I'll receive.
