Hey guys, tonight I started getting $ signs all over the screen after the Asus motherboard splash screen during post. The strange thing is that I just started the computer. I was not using it at all and it was off since Friday night.
After windows boots, I login then I get squares of varying colors on the screen. green purple, etc...
sometimes I get a message from windows that the nvidia driver
has recovered for a crash but the screen keeps flickering and i got the squares everywhere.
all is good in safe mode.
I removed the drivers
and had windows detect the card on its own but the issue persists.
I also got a couple blue screens while this was happening, could a faulty video card cause blue screens?
Could a virus target video card drivers?
The strange thing is that it was all fine Friday. No issues at all and suddenly this started to happen. and all last week I was playing games such as crysis and boarderlands with no issues at all.
P5K|Q6600 G0|4GB DDR2-800|3.5TB|8800GT|Audigy2|HX620|Cosmos 1000|V2400W|Windows 7 64-bit
I never over-clocked the 8800gt.
Its a bfg 8800gt and I'm suspecting it is the video card, am I right?
Thanks for the help.
