Ok guys I have a problem. I tried moving my tower the other day and ever since when I turn on my computer the display comes on but its all green but i can still see the writing behind the green. Now I'm using a ATI 5450 1gb and HDMI cable going to my 40" HDTV. When I wiggle the HDMI cable it clears up but as soon as I let go of it, it goes right back to the distorted green screen. Any suggestions. Thanks

Try getting a new HDMI cable. It sounds like you have a loose wire somewhere as indicated by the fact that when you move it by hand it clears up.

I tried that and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions on a decent video card for under $75.

Which end of the cable is causing the problem, the GPU output or the video monitor (TV) end. It sounds like you broke a wire loose at the connector to the GPU or the TV.

When I wiggle the end that goes into the gpu it acts normal.

Yeah, it sounds like you broke a wire on the HDMI output. Do you think you could take the Video card to a good computer tech and have them resolder it in place?

I think it would b cheaper to buy a new gpu. Cuz where I live all the computer techs are rip off artist. Lol. Thats why i asked if anybody knew where I could get a DDR5 GPU for around $75.
