Im not sure if I picked the right section for this, if not please move my topic to the right place.
Im having some problems with my PC lately.
My screen turns suddenly pink ...with little squares... Im not sure if the PC freezes...But sometimes I can hear the background sound of music...or anything playing in the background...but it sound like slow motion and after a few secs it stops and I cant hear anything.
I took a picture of my screen when this happened.
Okay, My Graphic card is new, so is the motherboard too...
My graphic card is a "Nvidia Geforce 9800GT 512MB Gigabyte" and has a pretty good fan system (Zalman fan with 4 heat pipes)
My motherboard is "Gigabyte P43-ES3G".
I had to put a new Ethernet Card into the PC cause the Ethernet of the motherboard stopped working (Dont know why)
Windows still can detect my old ethernet adapter tho...and all my drivers all updated, same for my Graphic card.
Could It be that the card is causing problems? I cant or dont know how to disable my old ethernet from Bios.
The card's name im using now is "IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet Adapter"
I think it could be this adapter cause this freezing happens mostly when Im on the internet (Firefox).
I happens sometimes when I try to play games but online (Call of Duty 4)
The Graphic card or CPU never shows some big heating...it runs pretty smooth. The motherboard shows 38 °C (100 °F)...
It doesnt happen much...its like random...sometimes it happens 2 times in a row...but sometime it doesnt happen at all...
When It happens all I can do is restart the PC physically by pressing the reset switch.
The six-pin is plugged into the graphic card so the power supply can handle the card very well... the power supply is pretty good...I think its 650W but im not sure right now...(not under 650W for sure)
Any kind of answer would help! so please help guys.
And Thanks for the help!
PS. Sorry for my bad english. xD
