Default Help with FX5900 card


I have a Leadtek FX5900 XT 128 mb with a 3.4 ghz machine and 1 gig ram. When I first switch on the pc and play a 3d intensive game such as Vice City or Knights of the Old Republic the screen will flicker white for a couple of times before the textures in the game become messed up or (in the case of Vice City) crash the game completely. If I then restart a game it runs flawlessly for the rest of the day with no crashes! Obviously this isn't a big problem as the games are fine after the initial crash but it is annoying and I would be grateful if anyone could suggest what's happening. (p.s. I'm using the latest nvidia drivers and the card is not overheating).

That is weird. I was going to suggest cooling or power supply, but you say its not cooling so hmmm.

Kinda stumped

I had somewhat the same problem as you did with my 5900 256-bit. My problem was it would flicker and then turn white *after a few minutes of being on*, then I would have to restart my computer and it did this over and over. Finally I took the card out and looked at all the parts and a capacitor was broken. You might need to look at the hardware on the card. Just a suggestion because your problem sounds similar to mine.
