View Full Version : Seeing spots

06-30-03, 09:42 PM
Has anyone ever seen weird spots on their screen? I use win2k and have a geforce2 card. When windows is just sitting there, its fine, after I open a window or bring up the start menu, its still fine. When either of those things move or dissapear from vision (close, or minimize) the may be a few pixles that have any random color in random spots where the window was. Ever heard of this. Also Ive noticed in cs the are spots in the sky or walls. Any help is useful.

Sounds like an overheating problem

Well, is this the sort of thing you mean? Whenever I dragged windows on my GF2MX, I'd get these weird dots over that area.
