Hi everybody!
I probably have a trouble with my videocard (I've got GeForce MX-440). It shows black stripes from time to time, especially when I try to play games ("Heroes" are a complete disaster!). Could anybody give me advice?

welcome to the board

does it show the stripe after longer time of play, or right after the game starts?

first things, first, make sure you have all the drivers up to date.

motherboard chipset, agp, video card.

try opening the case, and try to see if the fan on your card is operating.

Sounds an overheating issue to me ..
if your 440 has a fan check if its working , if its using a heatsink make sure its attached firmly.

of course though .. updating your display drivers to the latest version is something to consider too.
