Doom 3 Graphical Problem

Hey! I just upgraded to a Radeon 9800XT. Whenever I play Doom 3 I tend to get little white specks that flitter through the graphics. They aren't their constantly, they just come and go. No other game gives me this problem, and I'm quite sure that it's not due to overheating (3DMark2003 run in a loop produces no problems).

 

I have the Cats 4.7 - can't get the 4.9 betas for Win98 ;) .

 

If anyone's heard anything, let me know! I didn't have this problem with my old Radeon 9800 Non-pro.

what level r u playing (Low Quality, Medium Quality, High Quality, and Ultra Quality)

if your playing ultra , or even high try going 2 your video setting and adjusting for performance and see if that helps.

 

btw what r your systems specs. it helps to troubleshoot your problem.

good luck. ;)

I've got a Barton 2500+ and 512MB generic RAM.

 

I think it MAY just have something to do with my video card being under high stress without a TON of cooling being sent to it. Like I said, this didn't happen with my previous Radeon 9800 Non-pro, and it doesn't happen in any other games.

I haven't been home to try the medium quality yet. As for overclocking, no man, I have disabled all my overclocks until I get my new case, motherboard, and cooling setup. Was running a little toasty for my tastes.

White specks like that, in overclocking, is from too hot memory. Try UNDERclocking your memory/gpu a bit, only temporary, and see if that helps? If the white specks are never to be seen again, it's because of overheating, and return the card saying it's defective, or buy some high quality cooling for it.

Oh good lord, I ain't gonna RMA my card over this. I'm sure it's just a little to hot for it, or maybe it's my Catalyst drivers (4.7). I've heard people with the same problem that have had it fixed by the 4.9 Cats, but I can't get those for Win98SE yet. I'm also pretty sure it's not Windows 98 causing the specks, as other people have had the same problems.
