Green screen problem

Hi people i have a geforce 7300le 256mb graphics card and when i play games, wherever there is black parts like background, there is a flouresent green like moss effect in them. Also when playing now and again the screen will flicker on and off.

Ive tried the screen refresh rate which is set to 65hertz at the moment which is fine in windows but as soon as i play a game it starts with the green fickering again.

Any suggestions on why this is happening? Im running vista home basic if this is any help.

Many thanks

There are a few things to try and do:

1. What games does it do this with.

2. Have you updated all your drivers.

3 Check your computer temps with http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php or you can use Nvidia System Monitor but you will have to check if it's compatible with your card. http://www.nvidia.com/object/system_monitor.html

Your idle temperature for your computer should be around 40C and when your gaming it should be from 50-70C.

4.Take a screenshot of the green moss like effect and upload it to here.

5 If possible try to see if your graphics card fan is spinning and also if your CPU fan is spinning. Don't put your hand near it to see as the fans can be fragile as can your fingers.

Also post the rest of your specs: Motherboard, CPU and RAM.

Hope I helped

Happened to a mate of mine, just over time it's done this.

Gather it's nakered, normally the cause of overheating, the screen normally becomes dodgy pixels.

The spec is:

Gigabyte ga-73vm-s2 mobo

Geforce 7300le graphics card

Arctic power 600w psu

Corsair 1gb ram

Antec 300 case

120gb hard drive

I doubt its overheated my idle temp is 17*c on both cores. I used core temp for the temp reading. It only does that green colour on gta san andreas and any other 3d type games. I tried toca race driver and it's fine.

It's really puzzling!

Sorry to be bombarding you with all this software.

But if you install this: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=163 It's called rivatuner it's good.

Anyway if you install that then play GTA San Andreas or whatever you want that makes the screen green, then once the screen starts going green and flickering Alt-Tab out of the game and see what the temperature of your graphics card is.

Also you could try setting your refresh rate higher like 72 Hertz, see if that makes a difference.

That's a light/shadow/shader thing. I bet the game(s) run fine apart from the green.

I'd hint either ur drivers/pc think they're using a 7600+, or the shader clock is too high.

Try older drivers tbh.

oo oo linky : nVidia: right drivers for my card ?

Ive tried installing older drivers and it still wont have it. Ive tried all the screen resolutions that you can set in the game an still no luck. The only thing is i dont know how to adjust the shader clock frequency. When i go to do it on the nvidia control panel its telling me to insert text or numbers but im well out of my depth with that. It all looks to complicated because theres no slider to adust jus looks like programming.

Can anyone shine any ligjht on how to set frequencys and what frequencys my 7300le can handle and run stably at please.

The really annoying part is its runs fine apart from the green, but toca race driver runs perfect with no green in the shadows! Honestly computers these days! lol

Your core clock should be 450 MHz and your memory clock should be 333MHz. Maybe you should start to think about purchasing a new graphics card because the 7300 LE isn't a very good card. But to be honest it's up to you. Depends whether you think it's worth the cash.
