Having problems with your IBM NVIDIA Quadro4 980XGL (128 MB) Graphic Card ?

I am having graphics problems with my IBM Intellistation Z Pro desktop. The graphics card is a NVIDIA Quadro4 980 XGL. Every time I try to open a game, or even Google Earth, I get white and yellow specks flashing all over the screen, the computer freezes up, and I have to reboot it. I have reinstalled the drivers, and cleaned the dust out of the computer, but neither seemed to fix the problem. My operating system is XP. Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks


Answers :

These yellow specs are called artifacts, and they appear because the graphics card gets too hot. If cleaning out the dust didn't help, I guess there is something wrong with the cooling on the card. Maybe try booting with the case opened, to see if the fan on the graphics card does anything at all. (if it doesn't have a fan on it, you should try cleaning the dust out one more time. perhaps another fan in the system isn't functioning?) If the fan doesn't function, you'll have to either get another one or get a new graphcs card, unless you know someone who can try to repair it.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
