Not more than 20 minutes ago, I was loading up TF2, walked away to grab something to eat, and came back to this mess:
Basically the colors are all messed up, some of the green stripes look very matrixesque (and it'd be kinda cool looking if it wasn't my computer), and I just get very wierd bars/stripes of color at odd places.
Any ideas? Its definitely hardware as it happens pre-OS and in safe mode, I tried a second monitor, same thing happened on that. Used two completely different sets of RAM, happens on both. Only thing I can figure is Vid Card or MoBo (this is what I'm suspecting T_T). Anyone know how to tell for sure? Or any diagnostic tools I can run? Or any idea wth is going on?
Edit - To give more details...
