Monitor flashing green 1-2" lines in Battlefield 3


Jun 8, 2010
Hello everyone,

I just recently started to have this problem and I'm trying to narrow it down..the game starts up perfectly fine and I can play for a good 30 min or so and that's when it begins to flash horizontal green lines. I have also noticed that it only happens when I am looking in the direction of other players. If I just turn around and look behind me, the lines stop. What do you guys think?

I was thinking that maybe it's getting too hot? I've been seeing other posts saying that it could be a sign that the card is already giving out but I'm hoping that's not the problem...

Maybe try the BF3 support forum.....??

It's likely a driver issue since it's a new game. The Nvidia GTX2XX series cards are having lots of issues too.

As to whether its running too would we haven't told us what the temps are, so only you can answer your question by checking.
check with the official forums first; alot of times the user community has already found fixes to glitches, or can provide likewise comparisons to your situation so you can figure out if its a common symptom.
bumping posts twice in less than 2 hours isnt recommended; alot of members actually will not help you out if you bump your own thread

I am not so sure it is a driver issue. I have a Zotac 460 GTX 2Gb card, and I encounter the same green flashes while playing BF3. It doesn't happen all the time, and it happens in very different zones/lighting areas. I have a feeling that this is just a "fix" that needs to happen.
also run gpu at its factory clock settings if the driver doesnt help and you are overclocking. I got some funky light green gibberish crashing in BF3. I switched to reference clock on the 570 and it went away. Turns out I just needed to up the voltage a hair on my overclock and that took care of it too. I'm not saying at all that you should increase your volts, just stating for reference that I had two solutions to the same problem.
