Intel Core i7 2600 Gigabyte GA-z68x-ud3h-b3 8GB DDR3 1333 RAM Galaxy gtx 460 Corsair 600T Case Corsair TX v2 750 watt Power Supply Adata S510 120GB SSD Asus DVD+RW I started up the computer with the video going through the 460 and here's how it looked: http://www.flickr.com/photos/74744331@N03/6728733123/ The parts that actually show the windows boot screen are where I have recently dragged my mouse I then removed the 460, sent the video through the mobo, and there were green flockering dots all over the place, as you can see here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/74744331@N03/6728733277/ Is this computer simply a dud, or is this the kind of problem that can be fixed?

It would appear to be a driver problem. So do what odoyle suggested and then repost. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
