  1. Try your card in another PC, if the same problem exist then your card is dying...
    Also make sure your card is free from dust. :)
  2. First thank you for your reply,wa1
    I did what you said exactly before posting the problem.this results the same but i think to rewrite card bios What about your opinion ??
  3. probably bad video memory. a replacement card is your best bet.

    well, you could try it. It's free. However, I've never heard of that fixing anything. a video bios is pretty simple. it doesn't do much so it doesn't fix much.

    normally, this can't be fixed, but I remember a few people who have tried "baking" their card to fix these issues. The procedures can be found through a google search.

    I can't promise anything. I can't promise that it won't just make things worse. However, it is a possibility.

    Excuse me what do you mean by "baking" the graphics card
  9. sorry I forgot to tell you something .sometimes the card work properly without driver,not show the problem at bootscreen at dos and when installing driver the card work for while.when show an animation on screen the system freeze.i got very upset .and i really don't what to do.thank you for your interest
  10. Replace the card. Either your memory chips or the processor on the video card are bad. You don't see any issues without a driver bacause you are running at a very low resolution and without any features enabled. Any $60-$100 card now will outperform your card and should cure your issue. If you keep trying to mess with the card the only thing that will end up happening is that something else in the computer will fry, like the motherboard.
  11. Thank you for your reply and care about my issue

    Hello hang the 9 this is the image
  16. From the looks of that, check what mjsharma recommended, maybe you have the memory or core speeds over what is good for the card. If you don't, you need a new card, or possibly try underclocking it. These type of artfacts generally happen when the card overheats, is pushed to run over the speeds it is capable of, or has something wrong with the chips.

    A new video card is probably in your future.

    Your card may not have a fan on it, and the case cooling may not be enough to cool it. High heat would cause this type of issue.

    You may either buy a fan to put directly on the card, or an easier way is to get a fan that attaches to a free expantion slot near the card that blows on the video card's heasink.

    Something like http://www.thefind.com/computers/info-expansion-card-cooling-fan

    You may need to look at the layout of you case to see if this is possible and to make sure the fan will move air around the card.

    If you want to get nVidia, looks like the 240 is the cheapest one recomended.
