  1. Heyyy Folkss...

    I have been playing a game called Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory and i have been playing this game for like 3 years and a half. I have got a problem recently. I was playing a war (3v3) and my computer screen turned off and said "no signal" but my pc tower light was on... So i had to reset my comp by holding my comp botton.

    And now since after that i cant play that game.... I have asked for help and they said it might be my refreshhertz. But it cant be as i have been useing them for a while. Owell

    I gave it a try eg 800x600 @ 60 hz same r_mode 8 @ 75 hertz same etc etc
    Tryed Reunstalling the gfx drivers... Same
    It works fine when i play cs:s or other games.

    This picture i made is what it shows:

    you might not want to hear this, but try uninstalling the game, deleting all the old files, and reinstalling the game. that sounds like the best option right now if all your other games work fine. something might have corrupted the game's core files somehow.

    also, the 6200 w/TC is a horrible card, and is definitely NOT for gaming. almost anything pci-e would be better than the video card you have now.
