I am having these little multi-colored pixels that are all my screen. It looks like as if you put water on your screen and you smeared it.
And when I reboot my PC requires my start up disc in order to get passed the boot up screen.
CPU: AMD 3800x
Hdd: 80, 120gig WD IDE, 320gig IDE WD, 250, and 400gig SATA2 WD
PSU: 500w Allied
RAM: 4x 512 meg Patriot sticks
Duel monitors: 19" Neovo 12ms 600:1, and CRT 19" ProView.
Regarding my monitor it isn't that because I'm running duel monitors and the weird pixels come up on both screens in the same spot.
I got a bad boot sector and I didn't format until recently and I've had a few of those in the past, but never that big of a deal. I just reformatted and I still have to have the boot up disc in order to access my machine.
I ran a diagnostic using WD Diag. tool set-up and all sectors were fine. I ran a mobo check, memory, and another hdd run and all of them passed using NVIDIA nTune. I am assuming the problem has to do the video card, but I can't find any diagnostic tools or firmware to attempt to fix the problem. I have had the card for about a year and just until recently I've been having these problems.
Here is a pic of the...The pixels usually get worse than this.
