I have the same exact problem with a geforce fx 5600 256mb pny manu. its using the unreal engine its a proven graphics engine. George Apr 13, 2005 #4 Syndrome TS Rookie hey guys I had this exact same problem with my ATI Radeon 9600XT. so i have no idea what has changed and decided to play up?

Also it`s a good idea to disable your antivirus softwear before removing or installing drivers as it can seriously cause problems if you don`t. So in your guys shoes i would be doing the following 1. Does this mean that Firstly, it was not the graphics card which was causing the problems in the first place, and Secondly, is this now a new problem caused by installing

Video games should never cause your card to overheat. If your using a VIA chipset and your using a Creative card of any model then this is almost certainly causing lockup's and desktop flashes. j3sus10-26-2009, 03:44 PMno improvement after updated drivers -_- and mine runs over 52c most of the time... Your 9800 is an older high performance card that requires more power and additional pixel pipelines.

The facet remains that I have changed nothing in my system. ted ssb212111-11-2003, 01:57 AMSeems that this problem with CoD has to do with the 5600 and 5200 card series. The box which is over your motherboard, with a big fan. Obviously this is a pain but if you wanted to really rule out software as the cause of the issue you could backup your computer and do a fresh install windows

you have to have ambient occlusion OFF. I have checked all my bios settings, and they ( as far as I can tell ) seem fine. Last modified Apr 08, 2006 at1:02PM JasonCox What version of DirectX do you have? When dealing with the unexplainable such as this game being the only one crashing etc.

Its not like we downloaded the drivers from two different locations.. I did find *one* thing that helps a little: If you dial down Video Accelleration one step (right click desktop, click Settings Tab, Advanced button, and on the ATI Troubleshooting Tab), This game even tho system specs are not all that high seems to be really pushing my card. In the mean time, I'll be seeing what I can do.

pdcrowley10-27-2009, 12:17 PMplease stop posting if yours has been working properly with Badlands, you are not helping anyone. his comment is here ill do a longer test later. Having something like that so intermitent and random would just drive me nuts and would have to get to the bottom of it. scott100 said: Again similar problems and it is now doing my head in.

azuremagi09-06-2003, 02:05 PMI have a slightly different system and the PNY 5600 but I am running into the same exact problem. but my friend cleaned his 5 times and he was still overheating.. Everybody has posted system specs and everybody is still having the problem. this contact form Kr4zyK0w10-28-2009, 11:26 AMTurning down dynamic shadows only seems to have lessened the problem.

Know any quick fixes or do I have to wait for a patch? Most ATI cards run well under their limit so that the fan that comes with them should be more than enough. The screen then goes black and then I have to manually shut down system.

Anyone else have this problem here?

The specifications on your motherboard definitely says you have an AGP 4X/8X 1.5 volt slot so any of the cards I linked to should work. This first happened a while back and then seemed to be cured when I installed an ATI driver update which appeared on the windows update service. solved How much Should I sell the Radeon 9800 Pro? I play the game in windowed mode forcing one of my gpu cores to run at max default clocks.

Looking at some of the system specs some of you have, if you don't have over 400watt power supplies then that I think is a possible contributor to your problems. 11-23-2003, Im not sure it is an overheating issue, ive played games where my temps get into the mid 90s C (4870x2) and no crashing. I had a friend where his pc was freezing in every game all the sudden after working flawlessly for 6 months. http://puchinet.com/radeon-9800/radeon-9800.php just make sure u have up to date drivers NFS shift on the other hand hasnt been fixed Vaskre10-27-2009, 11:35 AMI had issues with my 4870X2.
