  • Cracked graphics + black screen + frozen system.

    Dear Mods

    2 days ago i finally got my beta key. The first time i launched the game i saw the valve loading screen and then the graphics start to crack (something like red dots and lines) then frozen screen leading to black screen and frozen system which i had to reboot the hard way. Despite this i tried again and for one and half day i manage to play 5-6 decent games no lags no crack graphs everything smooth. Long story short since this evening cracks graphs and black screens are backs right after the valve intro or even after i enter the dota 2 lobby.
    My system : Intel core i5 2.26GHz, Ati mob radeon HD 5650,4Gb ram.

    things i tried:
    unistall-reinstall dota 2
    EDIT: RE-install the video drivers manage to enter and exit the game couple times even play 3 games really smooth in default settings came back after an hour try to launch dota2 again and the problems are back.
    temperature doesnt look that much high.
    after search in forums i tried to alter this C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg moddefaults.txt in my default resolution.

    All suggestions are helpful!!

    Thanks, in advance.
