Solved How do I fix this gaming problems

December 1, 2016 at 06:18:31
Specs: Windows 10 x64, AMD Phenom II x3 720 / 8 GB DDR3
I don't know why, but most games glitch to the point of crashing.
This has been happening for a couple of weeks now and I don't know when or why it started.

There isn't really a way to describe it so I took some photos

There are boxes over the screen sometimes,
in some games (like counter-strike) there are holes in walls and guns and people are in weird poses, or there are weird lines coming out of objects and going all over the place.
After some time the games may freeze or crash.
Sometimes the games will go to the desktop and if I try to tab into the game I can't until I restart it.

Only a small amount of games don't have these glitches.
Sometimes if I use HTML video player it will freeze the browser over and over again until I close it.

Please help.

**Sometimes long white lines cover the screen or text wont show until I put my mouse over it

Old graphics card, extremely power hungry by modern standards. Consumes approx 200W under full load. And being that it's old, it's not properly supported by Win10. Notice that AMD has no drivers for it. Either switch to Win7 or upgrade your video card.

Test your Memory/Ram.

Clean the contacts with an pencil eraser & try it again. May need cleaning or reseating. If multi sticks, try just one stick to test.

Could be overheating.
Take a cover off & clean out the dust, put an external fan on & see if it behaves with the extra cooling. Make sure all the fans ( including the power supply ) are spinning fast, with the power off, give them a spin with a matchstick to make sure they are not stuck.

It looks like your graphics card is failing, possibly due to overheating. Please post the make/model of your motherboard, graphics card, & power supply.

Reply #4, Yes. Plus check the voltage outputs on your power supply in HWMonitor (program) or in BIOS, if the voltages are not within 5% of their nominal values (ie: 12V +/- 5%, etc.) then it also may need replacing.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
