Did my graphics card DIE?? Tags: Graphics Cards Drivers Graphics Last response: July 30, 2009 9:09 PM in Graphics & Displays Share clintman02 July 30, 2009 5:55:35 PM Hello everyone, figured this would be the place to get the right answer. Last night I was about to log into some Crysis, and everything froze, screen went black, came back and colors were a bit distorted, and then everything just locked up. I shut the computer off and turned it back on to find that my screen was displaying distorted colors and showing 6-7 groups of yellow vertical lines. My graphics card, a MSI 8800 ultra was not being recongnized, so I tried updating the drivers and even uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling with no luck. I have had the card for about 1.5 years. Could my graphics card be dead?? Thanks for any and all input!

I guess worst case scenario I might try ATI out and give the 4870 a looksie. m 0 l Richy0money July 30, 2009 7:29:20 PM R.I.P. gpu, dont overclock. m 0 l clintman02 July 30, 2009 8:53:16 PM THinking it's probably a dead card then? ATI a good way to go? 4870 for under 200 bucks? m 0 l Onus a c 199 U Graphics card July 30, 2009 8:59:33 PM Sounds dead to me too, if the reseating doesn't help. A 4870 needs a quality 500W PSU. Make sure you have the juice for it. What brand/model of PSU do you have now? m 0 l clintman02 July 30, 2009 9:09:06 PM Just replaced an old rosewill 550w for an OCZ Gamextream 700w about a couple months ago, so I suppose that should work out alright. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
