7 ultimate x64
Geforce 8800 GTS Strange behaviour

hey all!
my 8800GTS which was installed in my brothers PC has started acting odd. In the Windows XP loading screen where the logo shows up it artifacted with blue patches/squares on screen and a blue screen momentarily showed up with something like page fault in non page area. It restarted automatically after that BSOD. I installed Win 7 x86 on it. No artifacts at all during setup but when windows detected the graphics card it rebooted automatically with no error. He's now using intel onboard and it's working okay. It was just fine the day before! No artifacts at all in the bios btw, left the bios open for 20 mins also. His system is an intel original 965 mobo, c2d e6300, 1 gb ram and the power supply is a FSP epsilon 600w (taking this psu back though since he no longer has the 8800!). I've not tried the card on my pc yet due to lack of time for all the fidgeting it would involve (exams!).
