    Hitman Sniper Challange, Common GPU Error.

    Hitman Sniper Challange, With a slight amount of slow down on ultra settings, and tested in the lowest possible settings to circumvent the following, on a win 7 (32-bit), i7 920, xfx gtx 260, and enough ram (6gb), and occouring in other games (Black Light Retribution, their forum's stating it's v-ram) a locking occours with this pc rig, playing these games, the gpu squeals a consistent pitch through the headphones and a random colour is displayed and locks the screen from the desktop, that can't be alt tabbed back to, tried in every possible setting, is there anyway around this happening? have to restart everytime.

    You mentioned a squeal while crashing. Describe in a little more detail what you mean when you say the GPU is squealing through your speakers. If the standard fixes from Google don't solve it look at other things. Change the settings in the Nvidia control panel rather than in the game, drop your settings lower and lower to see if the crashes stop. Install a heat monitoring program if you don't have one. Check your temperatures. Having your graphics settings cranked up with inadequate cooling will cause lockups and graphical oddities (sometimes these oddities become permanent). EAX and any audio from the sound card used to lockup my computer, while causing graphical anomalies. Try disabling EAX and dropping your audio to the lowest possible setting (maybe even to software mode). And if all else fails...ignore anything Asaltec tells you, he doesn't know diddly.

    Dropped the resolution a few moons ago (stretched but playable), no problems now... got to purchase a new gpu though, clearly, thx Asaltec!

    The squeal is just like a repetition of a system crash, or lock, but with a weird colour on the screen, you would think it's more than it is, it's the system just going kaput!

    Picked this up last sale and Sniper Challenge was thrown in.

    I don't think I'll be spending the time and effort beating that score you've got. Well done.
