Right. Well I was gaming and my computer bluescreened with this:
Now, whenever I boot, there's artifacts on my windows boot screen:
I've also noticed small red lines in my bios as well.
Once I boot up, I get that windows boot screen with artifacts and then my pc bluescreens.
Sometimes though, I can boot into windows fine but once I run any gfx heavy programs such as a game (or even now... youtube via firefox...) the screen spazzes, looses connection to the monitor and crashes.
However, I did try some things.
I tried my graphics card on my friend's computer that had an 800W PSU which booted up with the artifacts, but then successfully loaded into windows (Where mine crashes)
I also tried another graphics card (geforce 9500) on my pc and it ran normally.
My voltages are all normal, however I did notice my Power Fan (PSU Fan?) was running lower than it should be. (1000 or so rpm)
So, what's going on! Need new graphics card? New PSU?
Hope you guys know what's going on, cos I don't!
It looks like a memory problem but could also be caused by a bad connection between the card/slot so try gently cleaning the connectons: Use a small piece of coarse cloth (like denim) moistened in pure alcohol to clean the card connectors but be careful, they can be easily stripped off, so go slowly and gently.
If the system has several RAM modules, try running with just one at a time.
If symptoms persist, RMA the card or do this:
