Hi guys, i accedently turned off the fan of my ati x850xe agp card while running rthdribl. Artifacts showed on the screen and i immediatly turned off my computer. When i turned it back on, i get these vertical lines in safe mode, but cant even access normal mode because the screen turnes of by itself. Even when i get the bios menu the screen is artifacted. In safe mode, i get vertical lines on my screen, but the display in between those lines is perfectly normal. So is my graphic card gone, or do i still have a chance of fixing it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

you've damaged the card, you'll have to replace it and hope that was all that was damaged.

Does you motherboard have onboard graphics or do you have a second graphics card to try?

You have probably figured out by now that you don't want to turn off the fan, these card generate a lot of heat and need cooling to stay alive.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

In not so many words, "if it ain't broke don't fix it", however you don't learn anything this way! Best of luck!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
