Diamond 5870 2GB problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought a Diamond 5870 2GB several weeks ago and when I received it I had problems. Right at the POST screen it was filled with red vertical lines. I figured that I had a DOA card and RMAed it to Newegg.

I just received the new one and have the exact same problem. It is possible that I was given two DOA cards but unlikely. I was thinking it was either the motherboard or power supply.

My computer specs (the one in my sig is at my brothers, wont be back there for about a month so dont have another computer to really test with):

DFI Lanparty X38 T2RB
Core 2 Duo E8400
Win7 64bit
4GB RAM
Corsair 750TX

The only computer I have to test with is a work computer, I would have to still use my power supply though. I guess that would help to rule out the motherboard at least.
