View Full Version : Still same Vid problems after vbios update. Artifacts during game.

(repost as I got no love in the other thread.)
HI all, Im having a continued problem even after the update. I was loving my g73 & having no problems. I even played my game a few times then all of a sudden these artifacts like static were popping up all over. I did the vbios & saw it update. Now anytime I run my game, Eve-Online, I get the artifacts again & then after the game is off I still get random micro artifacts, smaller then the ones in the game.
This only starts happening when I play eve & wondering if it might be a game /to card issue? I have never had this before & I have owned 10 different cards over the years.

I have no heat issues & never had a grey screen. Just popcorn size artifacts.
I searched for this issue in every term possible & read 8 pages of this thread. I hope I didn't go over someone else's answer.

Thanks for your help in advanced!

We could use some more info:

1) What vBIOS version do you have installed?
2) What motherboard BIOS is installed?
3) What ATI Catalyst is installed?
4) Have you ever updated DirectX?

What should be installed is :

1) vBIOS
2) BIOS 211
3) Catalyst 10.12 WHQL (https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/DRIVERS/mobile/10-12_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc_ocl.exe)
4) DirectX June 2010 Update available here (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=3b170b25-abab-4bc3-ae91-50ceb6d8fa8d)

I have checked & updated what needed to be updated & am still having the issues. The one thing I find odd is that it only starts when I play a game, then after I exit the game I still have artifacts on the desktop.

I'm also about to put in a new momentus xt hybrid drive & 2gb ram, wondering if I should do that before trying to fix this problem.
