I dunno exactly when this started but it is pretty recent, when I play ingame at first it looks normal but after a few minutes the screen starts going crazy and it doesn't stop unless I minimize the game and that only works for a little while then it starts messing up again. I also posted this on the Smite forums since the same problem happens when I play that game too.



This is just when it's starting, it gets pretty bad to the point I can't see things on the screen, I'll take more screenshots if it's needed. Do anyone know what's happening and how can I fix this?

To me that looks like it could be your graphics card overheating. Check temps and make sure you have good air flow in your case.

Also just in case, make sure you update to the latest graphics drivers for your card.

it's not too hot but I wonder why it only happens when I play on Smite/LoL, I'll check to see if the drivers need to be updated. Thanks for the info ^^

If it doesn't happen in other games I'm not sure :( I had overheating issues before and it resulted in artifacts like that. Not sure what else to suggest beyond a driver update.

This forum is actually just about MOBAFire.com itself and not the game, you might have a lot better luck posting in the official tech support forums :)

I see and thanks for the link, I'll put a post up there though I did some digging into and found out the driver this laptop uses doesn't really get much support from the official maker of it and I ended up modifying a file and now when I play LoL after a few minutes the laptop cuts off so I really can't play it at the moment :(

Eek :( Do you know what the GPU make and model is? I would say try uninstalling the driver and then grab the latest from an official source (hopefully it's Nvidia or AMD). If your system is older, sometimes it will be incompatible, but if it doesn't fix the problem you can always go back to the latest driver from the laptop maker.
