While playing warcraft my PC suddenly froze and crashed and then when I rebooted I had lines down my screen during bootup and on my screen with windows loaded. Device Manager says windows has stopped my device due to code 43 and its unviewable in dxdiag. I have removed the card, cleaned the dust off, reinstalled it and still the same. I have updated the drivers for my mainboard and my GPU and still the same. I would expect I have a broken video card but what I dont understand is that I can still have my max resolution on and I get no lag when scrolling windows or viewing youtube, its just the lines down my screen. Also since windows has stopped my device I must be using onboard graphics at present...so why the lines down my screen if my "broken" device is disabled altogether.
My card is Gainward Bliss 8800 GTS 1384MB and is just over 3 yrs old
any more info needed let me know, cheers.
