Dodgy Graphics Card?


Established Member
Hi All,

Im an IT guy and have been for a few years now but hardware is not my forte, I believe i may have purchased a faulty graphics card.

The problem is simular to this: Imageshack - screen9uf.gif

My screen looks like this even in the BIOs :rolleyes:

Im guessing the graphics card has onboard memory issues, its possible that the bios on the mobo has been changed to accommodate an overclocking in the past so it might be worth load defaults?

Any other ideas :lease:

Cheers :D:D

Vram issue or Gpu has overheated due to badly seated cooler , i would take it back.

Agreed, I had a suspect GPU a few years ago that exhibited same trouble... took it to a local computer shop who checked it over for me and determined there was a faulty ram chip. But could just as easily be the gpu has overheated. Either way, if you can... take it back.
