Computer freezing up during games

Postby The Ninja Pirate on Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:35 am

I've had a problem with freezing and pixelation for few days now. I first happened during when I was playing Minecraft and now I happened right after I watched the intro movie of Payday 2 and everytime I try to start Payday it allways stops after the intro and looks like this. Image'

I'm now scanning for any viruses or malwares and I'll update my graphic card drives. Other than that I'm not sure what should I do. Any help?

A little more information on your system might be helpful.

all drivers up to date?
Update your chipset drivers with this: (I take you have intel chipset as you have intel CPU and not NVidia chipset) https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail ... ldID=20775

At first glance it looks like the memory on the gfx card has gone
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

I updated the drivers and it didn't help. Still gives me this pixelation. Could it be possible that gfx card is busted?

EDIT: None of my games seems to work anymore. Eeryone of them gets the same damn pixelati.

Highly probable

Not yet. Need to have a paycheck first before I can a new one... The current graphiccard is five years old anyway.

There's nothing wrong with the memory. It just needs GPU reflow, 3 minutes at 100°C and 10 minutes at 200°C. I wouldn't use an oven though.
