ATI SUCKS ;P JK...I run ATI in my main comp

What do you mean it gets disorganized? Can you get some picture? Or describe it a bit better?

Regardless, your best bet would probably be to try and reload all video related drivers... AGP(Or PCIe...) video, directx...

Hmm...well I don't want to jump to any conclusions but that sounds like a hardware problem... See what the drivers do first, perhaps see if anyone else has any suggestions, then you might want to try and exchange it if possible...

I also saw something about your cooling system on it. I bet it would of fried if it was gounded, but I assume you check that the heatsink and all other connections ; that all have been seated proporly and such?

Hmm...there were some ATI's that had a few bad ones out... I'm not too up on the current ones, though, so I'm not too sure. I'm still sorta leaning towards hardware problems :-/

Oh how kind of you 9.9

Does ATI even make their own cards anymore? I hardly ever see plain old ATI cards anymore...
