    I have much the same problem in rFactor. When I drive around, there's huge black "curtains" all over the track which I can just drive through, and there are skewed textures all over the place. Is there a way to solve this?

    Is it the same with all games? Because that could be a broken graphics card there, sorry to say. :S

    Yes indeed, the last time I had such an issue my GFX caught so much dust it was almost unrecognizable :D

    yes that looks like the GPU or the gfxRams on the board are giving up :( sorry to have no better to say
    and i highly think that is not what you wanted to hear :/

    Bram why you talking about dust.. that remembers me to do the monthly clean up on my hardware

    You're right, it isn't... :rose-dead:

    So does this mean that it's truly stuffed? Or judging from what Bram said, should I just open up the PC and give it a good clean?

    Clean the dust out and give it another go. If it doesnt work after that you might wanna think of getting a new GPU.

    Okay... mayday, mayday...

    The problem is gone in rF, but it's still there in RACE On. I gave the PC a blow to get the dust out, so there shouldn't be a problem... any ideas? I have an event tomorrow that I can't miss.

    you are lucky mate :) keep it cleaned on a regular basis every 1 or 2 month cuz who knows if the card will survive a 2nd heat strike
