  • screen black hud text flashing on and off

    when in arma 2 OA mp game - after 15 - 25 mins the screen goes black with only the game hud text and ingame chat text flashing on and off - I am physically still connected ingame and am hearing the audio from the game happening all around me where i'm standing but he screen is black with just the text flashing in and out, I have to alt tab ctrl alt delete and end process arma oa. - this happens every game if i decide to stay for 15 to 30 mins of constant gameplay. This is after update in dec 2010.


    kind regards,

    Hi mate,

    Have you checked the BI website to see if you have the latest patches/updates? What version do you have? And are you using DVD version. Steam. Sprocket download?
    Are you able to record a fraps video of this problem for Youtube?

    Cheers,
    Swedge

      Sounds like overheating.

      Can clean your case with a can of compressed air. For a test, take off the panel, point a fan into the case and see how the game plays.

          I've cleaned the fans two mnths before on this mbp already, so i know it's not overheating in this winter season (the update was applied in dec 2011)
