GTS-450 Horizontal Lines - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Hey Binski I'm having the exact same problem.

Pink lines (not always, but most of the time it's pink) on the screen after a cold boot. Not on every cold boot though. And every single time this problem occurs the video driver can't be loaded therefore the screen resolution was forced to 800*600. After a second boot up the problem is gone for good.

I've send my card to the provider company (not sure if this is the correct term for it) and they told me the card was in perfect shape. Meanwhile I used my old video card and didn't have pink lines or anything.

Since you haven't posted any replies for this thread for two weeks I wonder if the bios update you mentioned was succesful or not. And if not did you manage to solve it somehow?

My specs are

Amd Phenom II 940 BE
Nvidia gts 450
Asus M4A78-VM
4 GB 800mhz kingston ddr2
Samsung 500 GB 7200rmp sataII

Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to finding a solution. This problem drives me crazy.

Ps. Please excuse my english, I'm not a native english speaker and haven't spoken or writen in english for sometime.

I used my GTS 450 for almost a year and a half and it is a very solid card, just because it's "old" doesn't mean it's the card. Try unlocking the voltage in MSI AB and giving a little bit more voltage.

It's essentially a very solid card, and I loved my GTS 450, also try a different PCI-E slot if you have one.

Update your nVidia drivers.

Then run 3D Mark or Kombuster to see if there is any lines while doing that.

If there are lines running that then you know it could possibly be your card. (More than likely your card, which is why I said try pushing a tad bit more volts into it.)

However, if the card operates fine in games and those benches and stress testing, then your PSU may not be pushing enough power to the card/system at start up.

Only things I can think of atm..

red lines are the memory dieing or overheating. My 580 dose it with stock cooler happen on a 92 deg day and gpu wa under water (not over clocked bc2 hates msi-afterburner). if you can get better thermal pads, mite want to setup a evga rma. i need to. om times card will work then it will crash pc no bsod or lock it up.

Well I still have the problem after changing my mobo setting and updating the bios. The drives sometimes do not load at startup and causes windows to boot in video safe mode. It happened on first boot today and once I was in windows I had short blue lines across the screen and it was in a low res of either 640x480 or 800x600(not really sure which one it was). Like I said in my OP it is not a motherboard problem. To me it seems like a driver issue but I already did a clean install of the drives. Any ideas???

happens too me but my lines are usually green, but sometimes pink or blue. ive had this card in 3 different systems and it does it in all 3. same symptoms as you guys. doesnt load the driver, stays at low-res. might rma it.. 3 year warranty from evga. has anyone come across a possible fix?

sorry for resurrecting a year old thread, but this is the best one i came across for this issue.
