Default screen all messed up

When i turn my comp on for the first time of the day 9/10 times it will start up withed a messed up screen (all lines down it) making it imposible to use and the lines change as you do stuff.

i have recently purchased a samsung sync master 930bf TFT and i am now sing the DIV port on the g.card, however the same problem still occurs.


to stop it i have to restart the machine then usually 9/10times it then is fine.
anyone got any ideas!!!

by the way i have reformatted my machine many times and consequently had different drivers of my g card.


thanks

What graphics card do you have? Is it overclocked? It definitely shouldn't be doing that just while starting up if it is overclocked anyway, but that sounds like a graphics card problem. Do you have another one that you can test the computer with?

Well, if you game a lot then you'll want a new card, but that one is fine if you don't game too much.
