Thanks that is what it looks like :bigsmile:

I have just instaled windows 7 again the unlimated 64 bit version and turned out the same. But i installed the ati control center with out the card in now it has fixed the fuzzeyness in the dos part but now there are 3 big lines down the screen. Like this one
http://www.playtool....round010000.jpg

On the link you provided but bigger there is no fuzzy ness no more...
But the thing is when it gets into windows i get a black screen... and will not boot into windows. I could take pics or a video again ?? When i do get it after like 100 trys the destop is locked into 4bit mode and 300xs 300 resoltion with the fuzzey ness back. But the control center has stopped the fuzz in the dos but not when in side windows.... Think im gonna send the card back and never buy from them again. The card is getting real hot and the last one was could this be because of my board or ???

Or is it just the cards ?
This new card gets hot but does not cut out like the old one. Has you may no i have updated the bois to the newest one and everything is set to default / auto. Just wanna make sure my board / power supply are not over heating them.....

If your other card works fine then it's most likely not the motherboard.. it sounds like you've had two bad runs with a video card.. return it.

Thanks the other card is a old and rubbish card would that matter ? Just asking because i guess if one card needs 100 watts and another needs 300 watts then the computer will act different / be under different strain. Im just glad i haven't done anything wrong or my computer. I asked in a computer shop could they test the card and they stated the obvious why would some one sell a 100 pound card to the shop which i bought it from for 40 pound when they could get more from ebay for it. They said that they think the cards ppl sell the shop are overclocked and they only sell the shop them because they have overclocked them and they have gone wrong. The shop i bought the both cards from buys and sells cards but they sell the card at double what they give the person.

Ah.. yeah that would have been helpful information to know a head of time.. getting shit cards second hand by suspected overclocker/abusers is a pretty large indicator. Buy that shit new!
