I found an old Geforce 256. I wanted to see if it worked still. I installed it on windows xp with no problems, but there was lines all over the screen. I installed the new nvidia drivers, but then after I restarted the computer it said that the geforce card couldn't be started. Is the card no good? Or is it something else?

Are there lines on the screen while booting up or only in winxp?

One the screen during boot up. And another thing, the colors of icons on the screen are very bright, and some are very dark.

If it's happening while the computer is booting up, then it sounds like the memory on the card is hosed. Time to send that card to the big Silicon Valley in the sky.
