i have been having problems starting my computer up. every time i turn it on i get pixalted lines across the screen, with the start up sreen behind them. then when it gets to a certain point it will ether restart (starting the whole thing again) or become a completely black screen (which stays there forever). i tryed talking the video card out then putting it back in but that really did not help. i have no idea how to fix this problem. anyone esle got some ideas.

Seems sadly that the video card is going to a better place.

IS this Onboard graphics or is it a separate video card

no onboard video, so sad. the card works to some degree because the start up text is under the fuzz/pixalation, and the monitor is hooked through the graphics card. i ordered a new card as a short term replacement. it was $40, so some of my games will be left unused. i have thought about it, and i thing that it could ether be that the viedo card is not working to its standard, or the PCI express 16x slot if the problem, so now i have the problem; do i have to replace my intire computer or just the card. when i bring it home for xmas i think that i will try to figure it out. if any one can help me out before then please do so.
