    Re: Broken 8800gtx?

    It looks like RMA time. But do you have any warranty left? IRC warranty on POV cards is only 1 year

    It might be overheating, have you given it a good clean?

    Re: Broken 8800gtx?

    Rang ebuyer today, and they said they will issue an RMA for it. Does that mean it is in the manufactures warranty, but not in the retailers warranty?

    I think it means that your POV 8800GTX has a two year (or more) warranty.

    Re: Broken 8800gtx?

    Did you install the custom cooler? If it isn't how it came out of the factory @ POV then your warranty will be null and void

    are these normal for a broken gfx card?

    ....I had a faulty Radeon 9700 that looked EXACTLY like the above screenshots.

    Yep, over the course of many years I have had 3 knackered cards that displayed exactly the above screenies. In each case it was the Vram that had become corrupted.
    Space in my skull

    I've also had a Graphics Card thats displayed pictures like that and turns out it was broke, so looks like you have to RMA it.
