Call of Duty 2 having issues on my 7900 GT KO

Hey everyone,
I just started trying to play COD 2 on my desktop.

It used to work fine, with the settings at highest or very close to highest.

Now when I play the game, I get random shapes appearing, and the game freezes, weird colors show up, it blacks out, smudges, etc.

I have tried all different settings, even tried with the resolution on 640X460, and everything else off or as low as possible.

I am running an Nvidia 7900 GT KO card on vista 32 bit ultimate.

I have already rolled back the driver that was installed, and then downloaded the most current from Nvidia, still the issue occurs.

I bought the game on Steam, so i dont use a disc to play it either.

As I said, this is the first time I have had issues like this, it used to work great.

Any help?

Thanks,
Jack

Either the fan on the gpu is dying or dead thus overheating the card or your GPU is slowly about to bite the dust.
thats what I was afraid of, the card is getting fairly hot. though the fan is still working on it, and I stock a 120mm fan right at the fan blowing air onto it.

idk, guess I wont be playing games on my desktop then.

Does anyone know how i can get a temperature reading from the card.

I have everest, which shows the cpu temp, hdd temp, mobo temp, etc. But no GPU temp.

The bios dont show gpu stats either.

Everest does recognize my gpu though, I just cant see temps from it.

Hey, thanks for your help.

I took apart the video card, and gave it a really in depth cleaning. Got tons of dust out, as well as sent two designated power cords from the PSU to the card, and have been running it with my case open. It seems to working fine now, the problem with COD2 seems to be gone.

Thanks again for all you help.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
