Dell Dimension 8300 Flickering Screen

  hunter500 17:07 08 Oct 2010

When the system has been on for 15minutes+, the screen starts flickering and the graphics become distorted.
I had hoped it was the driver, but I re-installed the original driver and rolled back the system to a date prior to the problem; but to no avail.
I therefore suspect a hardware problem. Is there any way that I can confirm that this is the case and it is not some other problem (e.g. mother board)?

Bit like another thread running at the mo - does the PC have a separate graphics card? If so, try a cheap one in it's place. If on-board graphics, you could again try a cheap card (if there's a spare slot), but need to disable the video chipset in the bios.
