I have a strange problem. I'm trying to play a game on a HP laptop but it begins to act unusually and sometimes crashes completley. When in the game the graphics become jumpy and I get triangles and lines as if the game is not able to render the graphics correctly. There are no such symptoms in Windows or any other applications. I have tried re-installing and updating the graphics drivers, discharging static by removing the battery and holding the power button. There has been no improvement. I have even re-installed the game itself and looked on forums for anyone suffering similar problems.
I have called HP and they say that if it was the graphics card I would be having problems in windows and other applications aswell. I'm not sure about this as the problems seem to only happen when the card is trying to draw 3D objects. They now want me to re-image my system.
Can anyone advise if it does sound like a card issue, or if you have any other steps I can try.
Here are the laptop specs:
HP Pavillion DV6 Notebook
Core i3 - 530: 2.97GHz
Windows 7 Home Premium
ATi Radeon Mobility HD5470 Premium Graphics
Thanks in advance!
