I need your help with a weird graphic problem which appears randomly and with no comprehensible reason. After booting into Mac OS I sometimes (far to often) get these weird horizontal graphic glitches which I can't really describe - so I attached a screenshots. These glitches disappear (redraw correctly) after scrolling out and back. It doesn't depend on temperature, because the problem comes even right after booting into a "cold" machine. The problem occured approx. 3 months ago. At that time I used a voodoo kernel 10.5.6. and upgraded 4 weeks ago to vanilla 10.5.7 and I'm now on 10.5.8
I suggested a defective graphic adapter. So I swapped it a few weeks ago from a Gigabyte 9600GT to a EVGA 9800gtx+. But the problem is still there.
Everything else is working perfectly. I use a GFX-String for graphics and I have QE enabled - no further problems.
Here is my system: OSX 10.5.8 Vanilla with Chameleon-2.0-r431 Gigabyte Board GA-EP45DS3R Intel Q9550 QuadCore CPU EVGA 9800GTX+ 512 MB RAM 4 x 2 GB A-Data Ram 1 WD HD 1 Seagate HD 2 LG DVD Player/Recorder
What I've already done (and doesn't helped): - Changed several Bios values - Reinstalling OS from scratch - Tested the Memory with memtest86 (ok!) - Changed the graphic card
I'm pretty frustrated now. This is the most persistent computer problem I've ever had to cope with! So is anyone out there with a helpful solution - your'e more than welcome
