power supply is 1 year old. Nothing is over clocked.
My problem is i had a radeon hd 3870 for a year. about 8 months ago it would have some pink lines come up where it would be white and green dots where it would be black or dark. it would stay for a few minutes a go away then started more frequently and for longer periods. 2 days ago the computer restarted with a flash of a blue screen the rebooted with no screen or sounds rebooted couple more times got 1 long beep 3 short and ami says its the graphics adapter so tried a card laying around geforce 7300 le 512mb 64 bit pci express fine all day yesterday even was over clocking it and testing all day with no problems. Used Rivatuner to overclock and video card stability test to stress test it and everything was good wnet from 37 fps to 50 fps tested for at least 10 - 15 minutes but the final test was 45 minutes long and 1.5 hours of modern warfare 2 on all low setting but 800x640 resolution. everything was perfect till i get the replacement radeon hd 3870. then this morning I have pink lines and artifacs from the moment i boot up. Not the monitor, when i shut it off and turn it back on it has its own screen that says asus in big white letters with no distorion what so ever even the no signal screen looks perfect. So I went a bought a geforce 7200 gs thinking i broke the 7300 le. Put the 7200gs in pink lines and artifacs from boot up. boot into windows and windows installs its own drivers (newer that the one that came on the geforce cd windows said) and a quick flash and pink lines and artifacs are gone great. Res was at 800x640 on my 22" monitor so i went to turn it up to 1280x 1024 the res I like and boom pink lines and artifacs are back. tried turning the resolution back down and up but lines and artifacs are still here. Tried cleaning the express slot thinking some dust is in there. Haven't tried ram but I thought it only shared memory with an onboard vide card. also tried other pci express slot but no change. could my mobo be going bad and how to tell.
I tried each stick of memory and there was no difference. I am realy leaning towards the mobo. I wish I had a pci card to see if that might work instead of pcie.
