Those are images of the horizontal lines. I thought it was graphic card dying at first but it is not i believe. I tested a different card and it still displayed the same problem. It occurs as soon as windows is loaded. So i now believe it must be my motherboard but i am not sure. i am currently about to test if it has something to do with the RAM. I am posting this in order to receive suggestions on what it could be or if you do know the cause of this. Right now i think it is either my MB or Windows 7 doing something weird.

Does it do this in BIOS? Make sure the connection on your monitor and card are secure.

If this only happens when you are in windows, that it has to be driver related.

No. Just in windows and it doesn't do it in safe mode or anything. I've deleted drivers and reinstalled them 2-3 times in safe mode but nothing.

I get the same exact thing... I have no idea what causes it. I've looked into it being the psu and gpu's and both don't seem to be the issue for me... I can run p95 at my current settings for hours... It occurs randomly, sometimes while gaming sometimes while web browsing, 5 min after start up or several days later with the comp just idling. I'm very interested too in finding the culprit

What mobo do you have?

I'm not able to play at all. It happens all the time i boot up my computer. It occurred yesterday and ive tried rebooting it many times and nothing. It doesn't go away.

I am force to just browse on my dads pc for limited amount of hours per day.

Edit: I have a 790I ultra board. I've had it since 08 but no problems until yesterday


Edit: currently just testing the RAM 1 stick at a time

The only thing I could think of would be the OC not being that stable, well for me, since I can reproduce the results when I change my OC settings and run prime.

Hmmmm,this reminds me of a friend that had the same problem,but in bios to,the video card memory can go bad,but if you say that in bios everything is ok,I recommend you to remove the OC from the video card if you overclocked it.
If you overclocked your pc make sure your PCI express freq is set to 100 mhz and not auto.
The second thing i can think of are the drivers,download driver sweeper,install it,uninstall your video card drivers,and open driver sweeper in safe mode and check 3 boxes,nvidia chipset,nvidia display,nvidia physx,click analyze,after the search is done click CLEAN,restart and boot into windows normaly and see what happens,If the strange lines on the screen are gone it was a driver problem.
Reinstall drivers and you are good.
Good luck!
