More than likely a heat issue, I get it when playing doom3, even at my default core speeds, Just need to make sure your Circulating air in the case properly. But like RB, we need more info. What your running when it shows up, Are you overclocking? all these are really needed when trying to troubleshoot a Video card problem. System specs are a plus.

no no i think you hit it right on, i've noticed alot of heat problems with my computer, but i never thought the videocard was one of them. then again it could be my cpu which is *suppoudly* running at 72C even though i got a kick ass spire cooler (rated for prescott, on a 2ghz) i tried overclocking my card once, for one day for maybe 2 hours, never did it again after that. my only overclock. yeilded no results.

my dad mixed the new thermal and old thermal and i have no idea how to open my case because its a cheap ass 5$ one. so i keep bugging my dad and if he doesnt fix it i'll xut my friggin case open and take off the old stuff and put on new (btw, he said he put PLENTY on, mixing old and new and putting plenty on.... thats bad right? about how much should you put on and how should you spread it. i'll friggin do it myself)

Wowsa! Plenty is prolly way too much. All you need is a very thin layer. I wear latex gloves and apply a tiny drop to my fingertip. I use my finger to spread it over the core. I can almost see the stepping on the core when I am done. That's how thin the layer should be.

Most likely yes. Removing it will void your warranty.

Plastic!

ok i applied it with a latex glove (remembered i had 100 pairs of them) and i also found out i had only a drop of thermal compound left.

but thats all you need right? its still semi transparent (the thermal compound is solid white color) i can still sorta see the processor thats good right?

yes its a very thin layer but even if i didnt put enough on... less is better than about 5 grams of the crap right?
