I have the Connect 3D ATI X1900XT video card and recently I moved to another state and I had my computer shipped with the movers. Well when I got it the video card was not in the PCI-e slot. It was still attached to the case due to the screws that hold it in place but it came out of the motherboard. Well I put it back in place and found that the video output on both channels is distorted (see pics below). I looked the motherboard and video card over and I cannot find any physical damage. I returned the video and CPU back to stock clock speeds and voltages but that had no effect on the video output.

I jiggled the video card around in the PCI-e slot to see if maybe it was a loose connection but that didn’t do anything. I tried a different monitor and the output is still the same.

Any ideas?

Try the card (temporarily) in a different system...that should be revealing.

We need to know what kind of computer this is. If its a custom build rig we need Motherboard make and model, memory make and sizes, and operating system. You can use PC Wizard to find out the information. Under the mainboard tab highlight the motherboard and copy the information and post it, also copy and post the memory information and the video information. This could mean a failing card. Try it in another computer as suggested. If you have onboard video remove the PCI-E card and try the onboard and see if there is a change

Sorry I really should try not to post before work, as I am not toootally awake yet. I see you are running two monitors how does the picture look with only one screen? As posted above the best way to determine wether it is the Video card or not is to swap in a known good one or swap your card into a known good system.
