Ati radeon playing up

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
G'day all
Long time no post...
Just of recent I acquired an hp sff mobo with a 3.2ghz intel pentium4 and a ati radeon 9550 256mb ext gpu it has 2.5gb of ram with a CPU:dram ratio of 1:1
It has windows xp 32bit and while using it I've noticed that there are dead pixels coming from the Gpu
Yes I have tested if it's the screen that has dead pixels and it's not Ive put the gpu in another mobo, an msi mobo and I had the same problem as I did with having it in the hp mobo

This is a customers pc which he wanted to get rid of due to him having a new laptop

The dead pixels are annoying me as try to game with it and all of a sudden from working fine it would lag and dead pixels would be everywhere on the screen

I have no idea why it's happening any suggestions people or do you reckon I have to go out and buy a different gpu ?
Thanks in advance

The card is probably artifacting, due to heat, dying chip, memory errors. A new graphics card would be better, that one will die soon...
I need upgrades
