well i happens now and then when i open up a game in full screen, but a few times, it happened just as i logged into windows xp.

 

 

i think your card is dying, temps or bad bios flash. what card is it?

ati radeon 9700 pro all in wonder. hmmm i dont know if its bad bios cuz i never changed that. and temps? well it wasnt THAT hot, plus i decided to turn on the AC and it still went like that.

 

Is it OCd? How about temprature? I had this happen with an old fanless GF2 mx400

LOL, if it does that very often then I would say the card is shot or about there. May want to think about replacing it.

My 9800PRO did that. It started when I was playing Lego Star Wars and never decided to stop. Looks like it's pooped.

 

The beautiful part about hardware failure is that you have to upgrade now. :D

if this occured when logging into windows xp, or any windows, or maybe a game, find some way to lower the refresh rate, this happened to a kid that lives near me, it was an easy fix when one of his friends brought over a monitor that supported a high refresh rat, to change this do the following

 

right click on the desktop>>Properties>>Settings Tab>> then click Advanced>>Then Monitor Tab>> and Select a low settign for now like 60Hz

 

Good Luck hope this helps.
