From another thread here:

Well I put it down for like a year but now am getting back into it. Problem is lately the game is getting tons of low rez pixels swimming around overtop the game visuals. Today it froze while working fine out in the open, then just bam gone PC wouldn't respond and locked up, PC's not too hot or showing any problems and in fact I just recently reinstalled windows XP Pro so it's not like their is a ton of stuff their. So it's like seeing a bit of weird snow come and go at certain areas. It makes the game almost unbearable, I went to get OBLIVION PATCH v1.2.0416 to see what that may do but I'm kind of hesitant. I'm more of a systems admin than a programmer so I am wondering is snow almost always the case of scratched or damaged disc or can it be xml, ini, or other instruct files possibly?

If that is the case can I save my systems saves and buy the PC "Game of the Year edition" and just throw out my bad disc?

Or is their a way on "direct2drive" or some other site to get an ISO or such of the game and save an image as well as the directories of the game to play it?

It's annoying and I put the game down because I became a vampire and got annoyed, now slowly I'm almost not one and want to keep playing but with all the snow it's not much fun.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks.


I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia for my 6800 GS and a test and I was getting snow on the test too, shoot. But..... the test came back as positive funny enough that nothing was wrong. It was a stress test I set to 10 minutes and selected RAM, CPU, GPU, monitor, etc. It showed snow on the test. The funny thing is that when just surfing the internet, playing movies on WMP or Itunes it's fine, or flash clips it's fine. When I go into a game it's not. So is that more of a monitor error or GPU error and is their a way to clean RAM or such in a GPU? So as to say flush your GPU? Any suggestions are good, before buying a new card or PC I'd like to know if the answer could just be freed up and it's something relating to software or a setting. Any help is much appreciated, thanks.
