Hi I have a problem with oblivion, it starts into the game and does one of two things...either it doesn't run the dynamic graphics so you can only see your health/magika/fatigue bars and a few other icons all overlayed on a black screen. Or two it runs fine for approx 2-5 min and then there is diagonal spotty lines on the screen that wont go away even after the game is requires a shutdown and restart to get rid of them.

It used to work just fine when i first got it and then it stopped. I thought at first that it was a software problem so i got the latest updates for all the software on my computer...that didn't i reformatted and installed it on a completely clean install with all the latest drivers....still no joy.

Not too long after that my moter board gave up the ghost, so i got a new MOBO and Processor....and still the same problem.

I have come to the conclution (possibly incorrectly) that it has something to do with the newer nvidia graphics drivers...anyone know where i can get old drivers for a 6800GS?

Don't really want to touch this but i'd suggest trying another gfx card, be it drivers or a hardware fault - I say hardware fault because I had a 6800LE which I unlocked to double the number of pipelines and that worked fine except Oblivion gave me grief with strange artifacts appearing in certain areas - trialling a different gfx card would at least then pinpoint your problem.

Yea I have considered it is the gfx card I have is old and slow....all i need now is time...

I was hoping to fix the prob with a simple driver roll back, but alas maybe not
