My GPU is in a stable state with good temps. Appears to effect my steam games.

I'm not certain, but I believe that there is just ONE blue dot of matter and ONE pink dot of anti-matter both moving faster than the speed of light, hence seeming to appear in more than one location at any given time. This has been reported in Physics Journal and apparently blows Einstein's E = MCxC theory right out of the water. I could be wrong on this, however.

well. this adds something important. Its no COD related.

This is Your GPU having issue related to the clock speed insulted by too high voltage, if You are using any overclocking software bring settings to default, if not try to replace GPU from the socket and plug it back, You may also install overclock software to bring it down as well. Reinstalling drivers may help make sure you clean up registry. if all fails you may have a hardware problem with PSU or GPU one of theme may be faulty, check cables as well.

No my GPU is not part of the Hadron Collider Experiment :grin:

Yeah it does effect only steam games, i have no problem what so ever with non steam games.
My PSU is about 1 year old and i have no other related problems i guess that would present themselves if it were a PSU issue.

I will disconnect my card, reboot my pc without the card and fully uninstall all ATI drivers, reboot. Shutdown. Reinstall Card and drivers and pray.

I really cant afford a new card right now :(

Either glitch in drivers or faulty video RAM.

this is getting depressing as I have changed my drivers already, its pointing to a funked card isnt it :(

Since you say you have this problem only in Steam games, try to disable Steam overlay in CloD (right-click on the CloD in Steam list, properties, uncheck Steam community).

Try directX as well..

I have done my dx and thats fine, turn off those settings and its not as bad i think, but i have black squares that flicker on the ground in cliffs as well now.

Is it possible that the constant crashing of the game and it never using real full crash has screwed me gpu?

09-26-2011, 04:04 PM

No it will not screw Your GPU. Try to reinstall steam and COD....

Either glitch in drivers or faulty video RAM.
