View Full Version : Yipes! Stripes!

I have a NVIDIA Vanta TNT2 16 mg video card - came with my HP PC, about 3 yr old. Running XP. I now have horizontal stripes across my screen (not severe but noticable) that seem to vary with my font size. Looks like burn in, but I'm sure it's not as the stripes change size.

Can this be fixed with a new video driver? If so, I would greatly appreciate which driver, where it is, how to install it.

I'm not a computer genius, but I can follow instructions - (just ask my wife.... :)

Sounds like the memory on the card is bad, in which case you'll have to replace it. Fear not, there are plenty of good cards available in a variety of price ranges.
