I have a slight problem.
Some people might remember I bought a BFG 6800GS AGP not long ago.
Well, since I got it, 3D studio max has been running slow, and once every so often, dots appear on the screen and won't go away, and they move when you move things around, and aren't just related to the program after this happens. (Not a temp issue + haven't overclocked)
Anyhow, last night I worked litterally all night on uni work and so took this big computer downstairs (was very careful with it).
Ever since I brought it back up, its been even more dodgy.
I started my partition up, and straight away, a matrix type of effect occured on the screen with loads upon loads of ASCII characters. The monitor then went black and came up with "No Signal".
Anyway, I reset and it did same thing. Turning off and on the PC fixed it.
Anyhow, I went to University, and after coming back, heard from my dad that it had happened on his, and and then it happened on my sisters right infront of my eyes. It froze on the desktop just after starting up with the characters covering the view of the desktop, and then it reset the computer.
After it started up again, Windows could tell something was up and concluded it was the Nivida Drivers causing the issue.
That can't be true though since we all have seperate partitions...and its happening on all of them at the same time.
It seems carrying it downstairs to upstairs has damaged the card even more? (I've checked the slot, its fully in)
As maybe it was damaged when I got it, since 3d Studio Max has never respsonded well with it?
Thanks for any help
