big video card problem

Recommended Posts

Well, I just recovered from a crash and am sitting in safe mode with networking. I saw a bunch of graphic garbage before I rebooted, when I did, windows wouldn't start up and my monitor said VGA mode not supported.

Starting up in safe mode I'm seeing a tons of graphical artifacts running down the screen. Windows also gave me this...

I've been noticing as of late that ive been having various games freeze and/or reboot the system quite frequently. Though I think It may be a memory issue. I have the latest drivers for my card, and I've never had a problem with it before. Can anyone give me a clue as to what the fucked happened, or what I should do?

It happens. Happened to me once with my geforce, scared the shit out of me. I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled. Works fine since then

i had that infinite loop shit with my radeon 9700. the problem was solved by buying a better power supply and getting the NEWEST catalyst drivers (i had to wait til they released the newer ones, but this was AEONS ago).

Well, the graphic glitches are gone (for now anyway). But the crashing remians the same. I really think it is the memory. When I put this box together last fall I just got a cheap stick of 512 to get by. Never had any issues, so I fogot about getting something better. Now I shall.
