Arrow Re: Severe video corruption from 6800ST

This was the STandard 6800 (6800ST 128MB), unclocked. And I honestly do not recall the temps.
However, I did remove and thoroughly clean all the dust off the card and the AGP slot. Then reseated it. It worked, until I ran Half Life 2, and got this nice screen just after a few seconds. So Friday I bought a (OEM off eBay -85$ w/shipping) 7600GT 512MB. It came yesterday, installed an hour ago.

Thanks for the help guys.

The fact that you don't mention your temps tells me thats the problem.

two and a half years means dust build-up and overheating most likely.

I remember the exact same kind of boot-up screen corruption when I over overclocked my old agp 6800

Running the card like that will kill it, Clean it now.
or I could be wrong, whats the temps like?
