Try contacting the company and see if you can RMA it. Tell them you bought it about a month ago. If the card was not called in before they wont know.

It does look like a bad card though.

Basically its a number the manufacturer gives you for your return. In otherwords call the company and have them send you a replacement.

That card is bad. Unless you case is as hot as the sun or your power supply is extremely weak, there's nothing you can do to fix it really. Send it back either to the guy you got it from or to gecube for a replacement.

its definitely not a hot case. its a new build.

500w power supply
xblade case
3.4gb AMD processor etc

suppose i could always give it a go of returning it. i dont think they'll accept it though seeing as i bought it from someone on ebay

Dont say that. Call them up and say you purchased it from a store that sells them. Tell them that you inserted the card and its not displaying correctly. Tell them you tired different dirvers and the same things happen. Tell them you bought the card about 2 weeks ago. MAKE IT UP.

Welcome to the forum mate Go to the top of the page and you will see "user cp" go in there and fill out your details.

Use a program called driver cleaner
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...load-6505.html
to get rid of your current drivers and then try and use some different ones from
http://www.omegadrivers.net/
it is worth a try. I am not sure but it could have something to do with the fastwrites ON or OFF for the 9600. It has been a while since I played with mine but give it a go. Anything is worth a try with the situation.
