I have upgraded and installed new Nvdia based graphics card. Also i have plugged in to use HDMI ports for display. But with new graphics card, my display, sp. Text and dialouge window become distorted and also some fadeup color seen.  I have tried to minimize it by setting display option of nvdia graphics card settting and also my monitors setting but there is not much help from it. My games geeting accelerated and i am able to play it in higher resolution but, Display looks like some chip windows 95 style . I have installed drivers which have come with Card, also i have formated and reinstalled my windows 7 32 and 64 bit both. But nothing is happening, what cd be the resone???

I tried what you said...
Removed all 'nvidia' vomponants installed,
Downloaded latest drivers from nvidia site, but it was same version as i had installed from CD, so it was updated one, and again same problem presits... If i disabled that driver, my display works normal... but with driver...
Its ruin8ng display rather then makeing it better....
What could be the problem? Is it Card is malfuntioned,or it is just nvidia is cheap thing?

1) Did you uninstall the ATI drivers before putting the NVidia card in the PC?

2) What does the PC say the Display Adapter is now in the device manager? (WinKey+R then DEVMGMT.MSC<enter>)

3) Have you reinstalled the rest of the drivers from the Gigabyte support page for the system board since you reinstalled Windows 7?

Is it Card is malfuntioned


Well, it is possible that the card is simply a faulty one. The best way to eliminate that possibility is to see whether it still does the same thing in a different system. But not everyone can conveniently get access to an alternative test computer, in which case having the card checked by a service shop or return to the supplier for testing might be necessary.

nikhuz says they have formatted and re-installed Windows, it seems unlikely that they installed the ATI card again then changed to the nVidia.
