My PC has developed a weird problem.... and i am assuming its a card problem, I'll try to explain.....
Display looks fine while using the internet and playing online games, Apps appear fine too - no problems Desktop looks a mess, I get little verticle lines (about 2-3 mm)(usually red) all over the screen especially around any icons and my cursor!
I have installed new graphics drivers - nothing changed. Tried different VGA lead - nothing changed Different CRT monitor - no change (worse)
I have a Radeon 9200 256Mb AGP card, MS-6712 Motherboard, KT400 Chipset, 1,024Mb Ram, Athlon xp1700+, 2 hard drives 180GB and 160GB
If it does sound like the card is shot, could i replace it with a 512MB Radeon X1600PRO?
Driving me nuts! any ideas? Any help much appreciated.

Sounds like a dying card to me...
Does the fan actively spin (assuming the card has a fan)?
A 256MB X1600Pro is more than enough. Don't waste the extra money on the 512MB. Here's a nice deal on an X1600Pro with a mail-in rebate.
or rather than getting a X1600, why dont u just get a 9800 pro. its better than the x1600 and cheaper. though you might have to use ebay to get one...cant seem to find a site that is still selling it :?
