    please help graphics card problems

    Hello all some of you know i recently bought a new setup well everything had arrived and i had began to put it altogether. I turned it on and there was major problems with my new graphics i had lines all over the screen flashing dots pixels and just random stuff. Also the card got so hot after about 2 mins when i when to take a power connection off it actualy burnt my hand.

    I've taken some pics to the best i can and a short video to show what mean. Is there something i have done wrong I'm missing or just a bad card, i must admit this kind of happend to my old xfx Geforce 60800xt and i had to replace the card.

    Any advice would be much apreciated i bought the card new from ebay and have asked for a refund am i doing the right thing or being stupid because i'm doing something wrong ?.

    Does the system run ok from the motherboards onboard GFX?, if so its a rubbish card send it back for a replacement or refund.

    Re: please help graphics card problems

    thats a good question that im not able to answer, the mobo has a strange dvi out put and i dont have the correct connector vga to dvi. has the pins on 1 side then the flat pin with 2 pins above and below on my connector the mobo doesn't have the 2 pins above and below the flat pin. Hope this makes sense.

    I think its DVI-D i have a DVI-L ?

    Re: please help graphics card problems

    The onboard DVI on most motherboards doesn't allow for connection to VGA monitors via a Dongle as it doesn't carry the appropriate analogue signal (that's what those missing 4 pins are for ). However, I notice you've got the ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO, which - according to its Hexus review - has an onboard VGA output:



    So you should just need to connect a VGA cable between motherboard and monitor...? Or have I misunderstood?

    Re: please help graphics card problems

    scaryjim thank you so much for remembering what mobo i had and takignthe time to check that for me. I did try to connect my monitor to that the other day but it wouldn't go in so i thought it was a com port or somthing stupid. I complelty gave up untill you mentioned this today so i took it back out the box and checked. Basicaly my monitor plug had a tiny little bend in 1 pin which i didn't noticed so when i bent it straight it went in 1st time. So i now have a working pc i was so nhappy i spent allmost £500 and i wasn't 100% that it was the graphics card but now everything is on working (using it to type this) i know it must be a dodgy craphics card and will return it asap.


    Thanks again dude much appreciated

    Re: please help graphics card problems

    VGA plugs are notorious for bent pins - I had one with a bent pin once and didn't realise so I just forced it until the plug went in, which completely flattened the pin! Still worked ok though

    Glad you've got it all working - now get that refund and pick yourself a new graphics card

    Might be a good time to fill in your system spec (My System) in your profile
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.
