I recently had a problem with my 8500gt where my computer would show a mix of white and purple random text upon bootup. The bios menu similarly showed these two colors instead of the standard white. When I switched to onboard video, my computer stopped working. I've built a new computer now using the same video card. It is showing a similar problem and I'm thinking it could be due to the video card. Have any of you experienced this problem? If so, how did you resolve it? I'm not sure whether or not I should replace the card.

Since the video card has displayed the same problem in 2 computers I would kind of lean toward it being defective.
I suggest you fix it properly by replacing it.
