Over the last month or so, my computer boots normally. I can see the windows starting screen, but as soon as it changes the resolution to my predetermined setting and launches the profile manager in XP I lose the screen. It looks fragmented and colored snowy, like youd expect with a toasted card.
I can boot up in safe mode, all is good no problems.
I believe it has something to do with the resolution change.
I have reinstalled the latest drivers, as well as my original ones. Doesn't help.
This used to be intermitent, now it happens all the time.
I checked my heatsink and temp... all is good.
Is there anything else I can try or is it hooped?
Is it possible for you to try this card in a different PC? Take a close look at the capacitors and look for any broken connections.
