graphic card problem?
Posted on 2007-11-25
ok, this will be lengthly, my problem is very weird.
I have a Leadtek 6600 GT . Yesterday, when I played a movie(avi), it looped/garbage after 10 mins of play time. I closed and opened media player again, i tried playing other movie, it wont show anything or it will show the previous movie that i played but in loop(i could hear the sound). I can see my desktop and eveything, i just cannot play any avi or mpg file again.
I need to reboot my computer. But then after 10 mins, the avi movie looped again.
Still dont get it? OK for example :
I watch a movie, let's call it ABC, it looped after 10 mins of play time. I open another movie, let's call it xzy. It will show ABC that last 10 mins and in a loop. but i can hear the sound of xyz.
Playing games also giving me problem, like strange artifacts.
Here's what I have done :
1: reinstall graphic drivers.
2: upgrade/downgrade drivers.
3: reinstall codec.
4: rebuilt new OS on another partition and it still wont work !
Couple of things that puzzled me :
1: After the avi/mpg looped, i can't play other avi/mpg, but i can play wmv...only for a while.
2: sometime the movie can looped after 1 min, or 2 mins of playtime, the longest is 14 mins.
3: the temperature is ok, dont think it is overheat.
So....do you guys think it is :
1: graphic card problem?
2: mother board problem?
3: power supply? how can i determine psu is the culprit? my psu is pretty new and powerful, below is my spec :
Pentium-4 2.8CGHz 512k HT
Asus P4P800SE intel 865pe
Leadtek A6600GT TDH
Kingston 4x512mb pc3200/c2.5
LG Flatron Wide 19'
Antec TruePower Trio 550w
Creative Audigy Game
I think it ia graphic card problem coz it can "remember" the last movie i play when i try to play a new movie.
Feel free to ask me any question if you dont know what i'm talking about.thanks.
