Hi people,

When I turn on the pc some pink and black stripes appears over the screen, before the OS starting, and in the BIOS. I formatted the pc and the problem just keep going on.

I'm almost sure that is a graphic card problem (Nvidia 8500 GT), and that changing it I will resolve the thing, but I don't have another computer to check, and I need to be 100% sure before buying another card...

Do you think I can buy a new graphic card without any risk?

I had the exact same problem a couple of weeks ago (9800 GT). Replaced the video card, and all worked just fine.

Nothing lasts forever and it will do you some good to get something fresh in there lol.

Stripes are usual a sign that the memory is failing.
