Hi i have a GeForce 4 ti4200 graphics card & the last few days the screen keeps breaking up you cant make anything out @ all, ive tried new drivers, checked that the fan on the card is working ok, taken that card out & put is back again & i still get the same problem ??? only new part on my pc is the xp2800 cpu could that be anything to do with it ??? thanks for any help you can give.

Have you tried another monitor? it could well be a damaged monitor cable or connection. try that before you rush out and buy a new card.

make sure you are not pushing your monitor too hard, go down a resolution and slow the refresh rate to see if that makes a difference.

if none of that helps then probably your is faulty.

any problems with your cpu would probably manifest in other ways first.
