What could be causing this?

Recommended Posts

Suddenly when I logged in today on Singularity, I got all this flashing on a black background. Tried Firestorm, same thing. Official LL viewer, even worse. Unplugged my Router, no change.  Got the same effect on all four of my sims.

It looks as tho only the textures with alpha show, everything else is black.

Here is my info:

This might be caused by a failing router.  The router can work fine for your browser and still fail for SL.  See if you can borrow another router or connect your computer directly to the modem.  Before making that direct connection, be sure your computer's firewall is on.

I discovered that if I disabled Atmospheric Shaders, all is well. Except now I cant see materials or shadows.

My iMac is almost 6 yrs old anyway, so I just bought a new one (with a Nvidia instead of ATI card).

It sounds like possibly the video card memory is failing/faulting in that unit, that or the GPU. It could be software related, but I doubt it. You need to run or have a tech run intensive diags on the hardware and software. The machine could still be salvageable, but if you let it go too long it can cause other damage.

Hope the new machine works out for you. :)

Sounds like a graphic card issue to me. It could be as simple as a driver issue though instead of hardware failure (of video card or power supply).

Sounds most likely either an AMD driver issue or your GPU or VRAM is overheating or about to die. When was the last time you opened up your system and cleaned the dirt out?
