What are the symptoms of ATI card going to fail......??

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

Lately I see lines at the bottom of my screen and it jitters too.
Could this be a case of a bad driver or is it a hardware issue? On the
other hand could it be my monitor? I haven't even had the RADEON 9600
XT AGP for a year but my Envision 17" monitor I've had for 2 3/4yrs
Really could use some of your suggestions. Im using Microsoft Windows
XP Professional SP2 and omega drivers for the ATI
TIA!

    Thats your monitor packing up. When a graphics card goes you get
    noticable graphics glitches such as a pattern of dots or blocks or
    wierd graphics around the mouse pointer.
