GT8800 shows white vertical lines of about 5-10 pixels at mobo post and windows Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 10, 2010 12:46 AM in Graphics & Displays Share magebane January 9, 2010 5:27:04 PM My brothers GT8800 graphics card went bad suddenly and is showing a somewhat garbled display at the motherboard post with white dots or lines (but in an ordered pattern). When it tries to load windows it fails, but it works fine in safe mode with no graphical issues. We put in a different video card, everything is fine. My brother left the GT8800 out of the PC over night and when he put it back in it was working fine for about 10 min and when he came back to it it was failing again. Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong?
