Zenitram is still being judged by the masses


Default Funky 3D

Sup guys. Just made a system for a family member and we were playing CSS most the night last night until the monitor turned off. System was unresponsive and so we restarted the machine. We went back and everything looked fine until we went into CSS where it looks like there is a problem texturing objects. No geometry tears just funky drawing. Let the system cool down over night and does the same thing so it is not heat. The vid card is a NV 6600 GT PCI-E. Has anybody run into similar problems? Bunked vid-card?

Virus. l33t h4x0r5 will not make your computer crash off the bat. they let their little work of art, monkey around for awhile, to infect as many computers as possible, or set a specific time or memory location to trigger it's payload which is does not always result in freazing or crashing.

The virus was probably running in the background infecting files that are hiden and not nessasarily system dependant. Then it probably infected a critical gamefile.

Video cards don't go bad from gaming overnight.

Solution scan for viruses, if you r infected you realy can't salvage anything that was corrupted by virus, thus you must prepartition and format hard drive and install windows again, this time protect it with antivirus and antispyware.

I highly doubt its a virus. Viruses don't turn off monitors and corrupt 3D rendering
You have a hardware issue. Check the video card to make sure it's properly seated in the system. Also make sure the heatsink/fan on the video card is properly attached to the card and cooling the GPU adequately. I've heard many a horror story about 6600GTs getting fried from excessive heat...
