    I tried to run MemTest64 on my desktop, allocating 10240MB, and immediately after, a couple of glitches appeared, mainly some colored lines on the left of each window, corruption in the minimize/maximize/close buttons. I restarted, tried it again and it didn't happen.

    What could this mean? My video card is fine after all

    Thanks :)

    Is it possible that DWM or the graphics driver ran out of memory?

    I saw this on my NVIDIA card once too during local testing

    You're right, it's probably related to the black screen and crash mentioned in the other thread.

    Many thanks :)
