Flickering graphics artifacts and low resolution on boot
I recently replaced my faulty memory with new memory, and before I did that I followed you guys advice: updating the BIOS to the latest version (see spec for motherboard).
Well, now I'm having a lot of problems on boot. There are all this weird bars flickering all over the screen, the colors are messed up and the resolution reverts to 800x600. And Windows 7 x64 is launched in "fault-tolerant" mode (I don't know what this is called in English).
After a couple of reboots I can get it working again, and it runs perfectly until the next reboot. I can also play games so my graphics card doesn't seem that messed up.
I've tried switching DVI connections and to a VGA cable, and I've tried turning the monitor off and on again: no success. I have the Nvidia driver 301.42 for now and will probably try the new 306.23, but is the Nvidia driver relevant on boot? The BIOS logo is also messed up, so this happens before loading Windows.
It looks like this:
