Video Scrambles After Loading Screens

\015 I am a gamer, and have a gaming PC, but when I have been playing games like Half-Life 2 and Fallout 3 my screen scrambles after the game pauses at loading screens. I can fix it by pressing control-alt-delete, closing the task manager, and clicking on the game in the taskbar, and the game will work just fine after that until the next loading screen, at which point, the problem repeats.\015\012\015\012This is obviously not a deal-breaker, but it is annoying.\015\012\015\012For background, I have a:\015\0122.0 Ghz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 3800+\015\012Nvidia Geforce 7900 GT/GTO - 256 MB RAM\015\0121.5 GB Ram\015\012Windows XP Professional SP2\015\012\015\012The computer is probably 2 1/2 Years old.\015\012\015\012If you need any further information, please let me know! Thanks in advance for your help!\015\012\015\012-N.\015

Answers :

Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.
\015\012First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.
\015\012If none of that works.. try the following options.
\015\0121. Try re-installing the games themselves.
\015\0122. Try rolling back your video driver.
\015\0123. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.
