My graphics card glitches

Post by Maarten1708 on 6/30/2014, 2:53 pm

Hello Oasis,

I'm having trouble with my grapics card since 3 days. I don't know what it is, and what I can do about it.
I hope anyone knows something about this glitch.

Here are some screenshots of the glitches in MC, but this does not only happen in MC. Also on my internet, background, taskbar, just everywhere.











I hope anyone knows something that can help me.

Thanks,

Maarten

Im not sure why its doing it but when I was in the end a couple weeks ago it did the same thing to me. i havent been back to the end since the new stronghold is so confusing so I cant say if it will fix itself. But its not just a problem you are having

It might just be a glitch in minecraft it self but probably not because it happens to your internet but to fix it I would take it to the Apple Store(I don't know if you guys have that in the Netherlands)or something/someone else that would be able to help you with your computer.Those spots on the screen might just be the secret settings on for minecraft but your screen is glitchy in general.If you can't get it fixed then you could either replace the graphics card manually if your local computer help center couldn't fix it because it might just be a glitch in general and not a glitch in the graphics card,or you could just replace your computer if you really need to.Hope I helped  Smile .

Maarten,

I have three suggestions.

1 - update your drivers for your GPU. 90% of the time the driver update will help fix this issue.

2 - You might want to consider getting some canned air and blowing out your graphics card's fan, if possible. This probably won't help but it's worth a shot.

3 - if updating the drivers and blowing out the fans on your GPU doesnt work, you might want to consider getting a replacement GPU (if your card is still under warranty). I'm not sure if you have a laptop or desktop (I didn't really read the original post, sorry) but I've seen this kind of graphical glitch and its usually due to faulty hardware.

I would look into geting your GTX 660 replaced then, if it's still under warranty.

And just so I have more information.. is Minecraft the only game/application where the graphics are all messed up? or does it happen to other games as well?

Its not only Minecraft where it goes wrong. It's everywhere, GTA IV, everywhere on the internet, task bar. There's nothing that is not messed up.
Leagle helped me to update the drivers, but that didnt help.

And I bought this graphics card less than 6 months ago.

Thanks,

Maarten

If it's every program/game/application, and if updating the drivers didn't help, there's probably something physically wrong with the card. I'd recommend exchanging it if you can or getting it replaced. I'm not sure how long the warranty is on the card, though, so your mileage may vary.

Hope this helped!

Also, let me know if you want this thread locked.

I agree with Mad here. Sounds like the card is failing. Most likely the fan on it died and it's getting too hot. Just an assumption, but it's the most probable cause. There's plenty of other reasons it could be failing, but I'd rather not go down the list ^^;

Also, if your case has extra/unused case fan mounts/screw holes, I highly recommend you buy enough fans to take them up. Heat is the #1 killer of hardware. (also, get a can of compressed air and blow out the dust from your case every 3-6 months. More dust = more heat)

Thank you guys :)
