I just bought a sexy new system including just about the top of the line parts, after installing all the individual parts, Windows, drivers and all, everything worked fine.
After a few days, my video output was garbage looking, all sorts of horizontal blinds and garbage numbers and colors were output to the screen, even in BIOS!! After a manual jump to reset the BIOS, still garbage, I even reformatted the drives and reinstalled Windows and the drivers (updated), I got the same ugly screen.
My thought right now is that my video card is damaged somehow but before I ship it back to ATI, I'd like to know if there is anything else I can do to make sure that this is a video card problem or ... is it something else that I could fix myself.
Thanks a ton
