Is my graphics card no good anymore!?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone

A few months ago I started to get these crazy freezes when I was playing 3D games and a few weeks later it started to display lines and weird numbers and letters. I have several images below, let me know if I need a new graphics card. Thanks in advance

Yep, it's dead.

You could try baking it, that frequently will buy you another few months

yeah it's pretty popular with nvidia cards and seems to be effective. do some thorough reading on it before you give it a shot though as it is a risky process.
