Graphics Card Testing
I recently had a hard drive fail and after replacing the drive and installing 7 from scratch things were fine...until I had the BSOD, saying my graphics driver can not be reset.
Then on reboot and before windows loads, I have repeating non english characters across the boot info screens and missing characters within the text that should be there. When in 7, I then get wavy green or yellow lines across the screen and I can only boot in to safe mode.
I'm thinking a graphics card failure (I've reinstalled the driver) but is there any tool that I can use to check my graphics card??

The only thing I can xuggest is to first make sure you didn't knock any power cable that may or may not be going to your video card. Than make sure it is seated properly in the slot. If this isn't the problem the only way I kow to test your card is to try it in another system if you don't have one maybe try it in a friends. Fabe
