graphics help. dead card??
ok this is lame. i couldnt easily get to another screen, but i managed to get my hands on another graphics card, a mx440 lol. and this seems to be bad news, all the videos etc now play perfectly, not too dark as before with the 6800gt. does this mean the gt is dead?? man i hope not!!
and another problem: when i try and play counter strike source or day of defeat source, they will not load properly. they will go to the loading screen, and then the screen will go black, but the main menu is there behind the black, as when i roll my mouse over the left of the screen (where the option buttons are) i hear the clicky sounds that they make. this happens with both cards. they both run doom 3 though, so i assume its a software problem. so i re-installed, but to no avail. any ideas?
