Serious Video Problem

Hi everyone,

I am having a serious video problem. In nearly every game, the graphics become all red and distorted after about 10 seconds, and the framerate drops to 1 or something. This happens in nearly every game that appears to be using DirectX - Generals, Far Cry, Renegade, Halo, …

I am using a GeForce FX 5200 128MB RAM graphics card. Now before you say update drivers and DirectX - I did. I have DirectX 9.0b and 56.72 nVidia drivers for WindowsXP, WHQL.

I’m desperate on what to do, I can’t play any of these fantastic games anymore :frowning:

Any updates? I found an amazing website on general graphics cards:

Ask your question there, they’re experts! Plus, tons to learn, I just spent a few hours overclocking my graphics card. :thumb:

Cool, I’ll do that ! Thanks for the link :slight_smile:

Try and update your AMD or Intel Chipset. You can also set your Pipelines to either 0 or 4 if red is appearing. I have a Radeon 9800 pro 256 and I had to download the intel chipset off of intels website to get my 8x AGP to work. Mabye this will help =/
