Default Re: Fx 5200 problem

i had this problem a year ago with a brand new fx5900 card. 2 weeks later it turned out that the card's memory was defect. a friend of mine bought the same card and had the same effect. he exchanged the (first) broken card against the same model, which behaved the same way - stripes and dots. he tried several bios versions for the card and some resulted in less, some in more stripes on the screen. in fact that (second) card got unusable after 3 weeks. all cards had defect memory chips. perhaps your card has a similar problem/defect like our 3 cards had
