Major Major Artifacting

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, this morning, the weirdest thing happened to my 1 year computer old PC. I turn it on, and all the Motherboard display name, POST, windows loading had white lines coming out everywhere, during the boot. I turned off my PC directly because I was scared to damage something. I turned on my PC again and everything seems to be back to normal, any reasons? First time it ever happened to me, the only thing I did yesterday was removing some dust in my case, but I did not hit any components.

Did you shut if off in the middle of the boot when you seen it?? if So im assuming it is a loose vid card specially if everything seems to be running fine.. check it out make sure as well that all your componets are secure.

Just sounds like you accidentally bumped something without knowing it.

Hell yeah I did, I certainly didn't want it to reach Windows where the GPU would have been even more used and exposed to damage.

i had problems of the same genre, try cooling your video card a little more than usual, like an extra fan. my older computer was artifacting alot too and that fixed it right up.

My temps are really fine, never above 55c, always around 45c. I have no idea what went wrong, I'm gonna play a little Battlefield2142, make a FPS test and see if artifacting reoccurs. Testing my video card for now in DXDIAG.

before you go that far did you verify that all components are in right??

Ahh...I have that problem almost daily, but my GFX never dies. Its when you shake, hit, or bump your GFX. Mostly it won't cost any damage.

Make sure that the Card is all the way in its slot and secured to the case Via a screw. Also make sure yo havent got any dust on the card contacts or in the slot.

Okay lol, no, it doesn't smell fire, wait let me check, some smoke is coming out. Joking. No all my components are allright, I touched my GFX while running and it's normal hot, and all my components are ok, if they weren't I think my POST would have failed. And for this problem, only 2 components would be responsible, the GPU or the motherboard. The DVI or RGB cable wouldn't cause this if it was badly connected, the image would just appear normal except with a light yellow background.

Just to be sure you should check that your DVI or RGB cable (whatever you use) is in all the way at both the monitor and graphics card ends, check to see if the graphics card is full into the PCIe socket and is tightly screwed down in your case, check to make sure the PCIexpress 6 pin power cable is connected securely also, I have a friend whose 7800GTX sometimes was picky about that connector, if it was all the way in it wouldn't even post but if you wiggled it a bit then it would work fine so maybe you moved it ever so slightly and that caused artifacting but as long as everything is working fine now you shouldn't really worry about it, if it happens again then worry.
