Hello bleeping computer.
A few days ago, while playing Counter Strike, I noticed the screen looked funny.
The objects were discolored and oddly textured. I didnt get to inspect the new look long , because a few seconds later my screen went completely black. It stayed this way untill I got frustrated with pressing control alt delete and I force reset it.
After this, I could no longer sign onto windows. In place of the login screen there was that damn black screen into the blue screen of death everytime. So i went into safe mode, and reformatted.
AFter the reformat, I installed the motherboard driver I found from the chaintech site (cuz i have a chaintech mother board) and when i tried to install my video card driver, lo and beold the same black screen into the blue screen of death. I just dont get it... I mean, i know the video card works to some degree since I can see the screen I'm typing on and everything is in color. The only noticable difference would be that I can no longer scroll down pages smoothly. Only in a crappy choppy skipping fashion. And no longer can I play my sweet Final Fantasy 11 T-T.
Please, if any of you out there also play an mmorpg, you know how it feels to be deprvied of it for even a few days~ Help me! Do I need a new video card? I hope not~ Is this a common problem with a common solution or something more?
Btw I have a Geforce 6600 GT 128 Mb if that helps~
