pixelated screen after new thermal paste

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is what happens when i boot up. Note when i zoom in, listen very very carefully and youll hear a whiney noise. Only happens after boot logo. Pixelated screen: http://youtu.be/wAm1_FHl5ZQ

I re applied new thermal paste to my 290x. At first it was fine but then randomly my PC shut off and then the second time just the display went. Now when I boot my screen has a pixelated yellow line going down the screen and can't get a picture past the windows boot logo. Any help? It had never overheated before.

My xbox's picture does not have the line on screen

Take the card completely out and unplug the power cords. Then hook it back up again.

I had red screen similar to this with my first 7970, after removing and reinstalling the card into the pcie slot and plugged the power cords back in, it fixed the problem.

Sadly that did not work, anything else that could be wrong?

I'd take it apart again and do a visual inspection the PCB and GPU. Look for physical damage to the GPU because it's a bare die and you can scratch them. Also there's small components that are sometimes easily broke off by accident if screwdriver slips and you may not even notice it (usually on the back side of the GPU under the X bracket).

It will help if you take some close up high-res pictures of it so we can take a look at it and see if there's any damage.

But it may be as simple as you'r display cable isn't plugged in properly or it wen't bad when you were unplugging / plugging it back in. I'v had my HDMI cable go to crap after doing something with my GPU and I got worried but it wasn't anything major.
