My 15 year old son plays the Guild Wars games and recently he has been having this problem where all these weird lines shoot out from the persons head. He is driving me crazy keep asking me what it could be and I haven't a clue. Please could anybody enlighten us how we can get rid of the lines? :whistling: The game was fine when he first got it and its okay for about the first minute or two of the game when he starts playing but then the lines appear and spoil the game. :blink:

This is a picture showing the lines that I mean.

It might be an overheating issue. Try downloading speedfan from HERE and see what your temps are.

I'm not really sure what a video driver is but the machine hasn't been altered in anyway since we bought it from PC World in January 2006. It went into the local computer shop to have the electrical bit replaced (sorry can't remember what its called. :whistling: ) just before christmas but thats the only thing that has changed since it was new I think.

Worst case scenario, you can contact Tech Support at PlayNC (the people who make GuildWars work)

The PlayNC Support Website
The PlayNC Support Center at http://www.plaync.com/us/support is the place to find answers and contact our support team. Answers to many commonly asked questions are available in our searchable site. Many of these answers will tell you what information to include when contacting support for a particular issue, so you can often speed the process along by sending the necessary information in your initial inquiry.

If the Support Center does not contain the answer to your question, click the Ask a Question link. Once there, follow these simple steps to submit your question to us:

1. Enter your e-mail address in all lower case (e-mail address is case sensitive).
2. Type your subject and message in the appropriate boxes. Populate the fields and drop-down menus and click the Submit Question button.
3. If you already have a support account, skip to Step #5. If you have never created a support account with us, you will be taken to an account creation screen. Enter the information requested to create your support account. We respect your privacy and do not share this information with other companies. Click the Create Account button.
4. New accounts will be taken to a screen verifying account creation.
5. Click the Finish Submitting Question button.

You will be presented with a reference number for your submission. A copy of your question will also be e-mailed to you for your records.

Please Note: Your support account login is separate from your PlayNC or game account logins so that you will always have access to support, even if you are having a problem with your game account.

You can update your issue at any time by using the My Stuff tab. For more information about the My Stuff tab, including how to track your current support issues, click the link below.
