Hi guys, nice site you have here :)
i got call of duty 2 a couple of weeks ago, as well as a new graphics card (GeForce 6600GT 128MB/DDR)
and have been having problems with the graphics - see my screenshot.
i'm a bit of a noob when it comes to computers and was wondering if anyone here could help me with this problem, it goes ok for about 5 mins when i start playing but then the graphics just seem to get worse. Holes appear in objects, i get big lines through the screen etc.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me fix this :tazz:
Cheers

Edit: here is another screenshot as the other one i was getting shot and the screen is red :)

yes, tried running on the lowest settings and it doesnt help. i think it may be something to do with the card itself, as i also play black hawk down and it has started doing it with that game too :tazz:

Do you have the latest drivers and the card seated properly in the drive, im thinking there might be a problem with the cards memory. Do you have it overclocked?

You said that it started doing that in other games also. If you tried downloading the latest drivers and it still does it then I can tell you that the video card is going bad.


It sounds to me that drivers wont fix it. Did you happen to get new video card drivers before you posted this in the forum?

Try cooling it down and reinstalling the drivers and overclocking.And maybe reinstalling the game.maybe not. but make shure to run ur grfx settings low.
