Sorry for my numerous topics,but the help is apreciated.
My friend when he starts up his comp he gets some blue lines/textures on his screen after it posts. We have tried swapping ramsticks,taking one out etc. Format, reset cmos,adding fans,I replaced his board and it did the same thing.
He did buy a graphics card a while back, could this be the card,as he spent money buying a 2nd hand board he does not want t splash out on a new card for it to do the same thing. Is there a way that we can test to say "Yeah thats the g.card" or something ?
I have an NVIDIA based MSI motherboard. Bought new ATI graphics card and received same problem with blue lines. Swopped to an NVIDIA graphics card and all was OK. Was told by PC engineer that while ATI should be compatible with NVIDIA it very often is not.
