so, I've been playing EVE Online for around 6 months and haven't had a problem with it...Until two days ago where my character suddenly lost all of her detail texture and went straight into gradation shiny type thing. What I wanna know is, how can this happen, and is it something I can fix myself?

here is a pic of the problem:

First... LRN2LINK. The forums automatically censor any words it does not like... so the full URL gets broken when it has something "not good" in there (also, people are lazy and don't like to copy/paste).

Second... it looks like a GPU (video card) issue. Update your GPU drivers and clear the cache in the EVE client (option can be found under "General Settings" tab).
If this doesn't work, try looking into the temperature of your GPU. If it's getting pretty high then do the following:

- unplug your computer. Get a can of compressed air, a BARELY moist paper towel, and de-dust EVERYTHING. The fans, the CPU, the PCU (power supply), and the GPU (video card). It's recommended to take some of these parts out to clean them better.
- try to increase your computer case's fan speed (if possible)
- lower the temperature threshold for when your GPU goes to max fan speed (note: this will make your GPU MUCH louder than normal and might shave away from its operating lifetime)

mmm Perhaps. my computer is about 5 years old...very out of date for a gaming comp. However, My tower seems to work alright temp wise. still, I'll clean it out totally as you suggested.

if that doesn't work I'll keep you posted.
