Mar 18, 2012, 1:35 AM
Hey guys, sometimes when i start up my computer and use it for awhile, it will then have lines on the screen then crash, is there anyway to fix this? Or is this a faulty graphics card?
*Update* This was when i was just browsing around tumbler or something, so no overheating or anything.

Apparently my graphics card came in faulty, tested with two computers with a 600watt corsair PSU, and it still crashes. Going to RMA it right away.
