ok, before you go out and spend money on a new card, let's make sure that windows is not the problem.

either reinstall windows, or, if you have enough space on your hard-drive, you could make a new partition and quickly install another copy of windows 7, so you'll have a dual-boot setup.

try booting into the new windows to see if you have the same problem.

I did an update (when I put win7rc dvd, I had that option) and it didn't change anything.

Anyway, I don't think it's windows7 fault since I'm having those bugs as soon as I turn on my computer so I guess even before the OS is loaded.

i didn't realise you were having the problems before windows is loaded.

in that case - get a new graphics card! (although there is a small possibility that your power supply may be faulty and is not supplying enough to the card - a very small 'maybe'.)

bonne chance!

You did an upgrade or a clean install? Please click custom and not upgrade.

Good point mickey. I skimmed through the thread and noticed no mention of PSU.

What PSU are you using?

And what about your PCI frequency in the BIOS?

And what "Bugs" are you experiencing when you turn on.

So I took a few photo with my camera.

here's the blue lines while i'm on windows7 :

this is a screen where the first graphic bug appears (almost as soon as I turn the computer on)

Those are 2 pics when I'm loading windows after a restart :

As for the PSU, it's a Seasonic S12-600 (600W, i've just check) .
I've never touch or edit my BIOS so It can't come from there , right ?
And I did an upgrade.
Moreover, now that my videocard was disable by windows, my computer is stable and do not crash. When my videocard was still enable, I had a few crash, a few graphic bugs and blue screens of death.

edit : updated the info about the PSU.

ok, it's definitely not windows!

looks like graphic card. unplug the card's power, take it right out, and put it back in again, plug power back in.

restart machine, if the problem is still there, think about buying a new card.

Problem is still there. Guess i'll have to buy a new Video card.
I might go for ATI now since I had a problem with nvidia.
