While playing BHD multiplayer about every 20 to 30 min. my screen will fill with tiny dots and I lose the connection. Re enter the game and every thing is fine again. I have a Geforce 6800 with a gig of ram and the video card driver version is latest out. I have high speed cable. My question is can anyone tell me with the limited information if its my video card or my cable company (Insight) :tazz:

thank you. I didn't know what it stood for.

what are your system specs?

it almost sounds like either your system is overheating, your have a hw issue, or you may not have enough free disk space

Lots of free space on the hard drive. I have a gig of ram and a 3.0 processor. I run a GeForce 6800 video card and the temp is 66 degrees when i check it after the crash. I have the latest driver for the video card. I will try to send a picture of what the screen looks like when this happens. Its really unique.000_0001.JPG

bad news for you. its your video card. its something to do with the video ram. It results in corrupted textures (the screenshot for example). Hopefully its under warranty and you can exchange it.

:tazz: I was afraid of that. You are not the first one to tell me but I guess I thought it could be something else. Thanks so much for your time. You guys do a great service for a small pay. :)
