Very odd artifacts with Nvidia Official Drivers..

  1. I had this problem with the earlier 66.71 drivers and I just installed 66.93 and had the problem again (I was using a nonofficial driver, can't remember number). What it appears to be doing is taking the polygons of certain things and extending them, like lines, across the entire world, they move with the originating entity, but they just extend to infinity... This has happened with both Far Cry and the World of Warcraft Beta, both of which worked fine with the non-official drivers. Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing before, or am I alone in this?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Did you completely uninstall the old driver first?

    Also when installing drivers it`s a good idea to disable any antivirus programme you are using as this can seriously screw up the process of installing and uninstalling.

    Thanks for the reply, and I am sorry my first post was a question. Anyway, yeah, all virus software was disabled and the old drivers were completely uninstalled. Same problem. I was beginning to think it was the card but then I found this .
    Aparently this person was having the same problem, and he rma'ed the card and still had the same problems. It seems it may be from overheating, but I am not overclocking and have done nothing to the hardware or software out of the package.

    Do you know any utility that will pull the temperature off the Graphics card if Possible. Thanks
