8800GTX screen Screen corruption
Hello

CPU: AMD X2 5600+
MB: K9N SLI PLATINUM
GPU: Asus 8800GTX
Power: 550W
OS: W7 / XP SP2 (64bit)

My problme with this graphics card is that: [url="http://img541.imageshack.us/i/8800gtxvideoartifact02.jpg/"]http://img541.imageshack.us/i/8800gtxvideoartifact02.jpg/[/url]
This is not my screen but is similar. I have this "lines" on text-mode when PC start up and also while win running.
When i was this problem first time, i checked temperature(85+). I change old cooler to new Accelero Xtreme 8800 - Arctic Cooling(temp. max 55). On next run i didnt any problem, but after week i was given "lines" again. Now i can not start up OS with graphics drivers instaled, only in safe mode.

Can my anybody help?

he might have just voided the warranty by taking out the old cooler tho. if not then RMA it, artifacting on post usually means a dead card.

Sort out a return with the manufacturer. Put the original fan back on 1st though. This is a pretty common problem involving the solder in the 8 series cards, it is pretty well known. If your problem is what you have shown in the photo, then it can be fixed by baking the card - I have a 8800 Ultra with the exact same symptoms that I fixed this way.

But, you are under warranty, so why not get it fixed. It might even get replaced with a newer and better card, as the 8800GTX isn't exactly the current model anymore.

Yes i can put the original cooler back, but i dont have cooling material like plasticine between cooler and card (GPU, VRAM etc..)
