Hey Arenanet. I’ve got a major nuisance!
I recently upgraded my computer’s graphics card to a more recent one. Specifically, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 (Super-clocked) manufactured by EVGA. The game is graphically upgraded as I can play with mostly everything on high setting and shadows on ultra at that.
The issue is… I’ve been crashing a lot more lately ever since replacing my old graphics card. I’ve been crashing a lot more with the Lost Shores event going on in Lion’s Arch, but that is irrelevant.
I typically crash when pressing the map key and pulling out the map screen. The entire screen would be covered in equal square boxes with a high saturation blue and yellow gradient. Sometimes this occurs when I open the Hero tab. My character would be replaced with the same blue to yellow gradient boxes and soon after, crash. I can’t even get a screenshot, since it crashes too quickly.
Please help! It’s frustrating, but I know you guys can help me fix this! Thanks for the hard work!
