Hey Everyone,

I am quite sure that the intergrated graphics on my motherboard is going bad, but i cant be for sure with out testing it. Can anyone give me links to some good testing programs, so I can pin point my problem? Oh, if that turns out to be the issue what can I do about it?

Thank You!!!!

I've never heard of an on-board gfx chip die before, but there's a first time for everything...

If your integrated gfx did go bad, all you'd have to do is buy a new gfx card. You don't have to go all out since you only want something that can show you your desktop...

If that's the case I'd buy an AMD Radeon HD 6670(If your motherboard supports PCI express 2.0x16)or something cheaper if I were you to replace the on-board gfx. It doesn't require power directly from your PSU so you'd be good. Also you would be able to do some light gaming with the new card if you would want to...
