    display corruption

    Hi all
    upgraded ny pc to the following abit ip35 pro 4Gb balliistix 8500 ram and vista 64 with a 6600 quad cpu
    now kept the psu and graphics card from old rig (hyper 600, nvidia 7800 gtx) now i can't test anything as i have got rid of all my old stuff.
    Display will be all right for a random amount of minutes then flash for a split second and the display will split into 4 then flash back this could then repeat all night.
    Any ideas
    Thanks
    Robert

    Can you try another card in there? It could be that your GTX is knackered, or the PSU or the mobos PCI-E slot.

    first thing ide check is gfx, if possible try another card, if thats the same could be mobo/psu, easiest to try are new card and psu though, how old are your products ? still under warranty ?

    process of elimination methinks.

    check the psu first. if it's gone t!ts-up since the swap, it could damage the graphics card, as well as other stuff. not that i'm suggesting that's the case mind you.

    surely you could take the psu to a local dealer who'll test it for you?

    Re: display corruption

    Is the card loose within the PCI-E slot ?

    Mine did this the other week as I've been swapping and changing cards all the time and now my PCI-E slot is like a wizards sleeve, all slack and loose.

    Very good point, sometimes when you screw the card in if the card and case aren't aligned it can cause the back of the card to lift so check that and maybe even run the card without the screw in place to see if it improves things.

    Re: display corruption

    A lot of people are reporting graphics corruption running Nvidia 7 series cards under Vista. The level of corruption seems to vary depending on the driver version. Try

    I have a 7900GT OC which gave all the symptoms of severely overheating despite the temperature monitor showing me that it was only running at 40 degrees. (It's water cooled)
    As soon as I gave up on Vista and went back to XP the problem went away.
    That seems to be the gist of other threads I've seen with similar problems too,
