I own an NVidia GeForce4 MX 4000. Lately whenever I start up my computer, the screen shows either different colored blocks or yellow blocks with the text behind them. I have to reboot about 10 times in order to get the monitor to start properly.
This occurred with my old monitor, as well as my new 2 week old one. Any thoughts?
As an afterthought after diagnosing my own videocard, it may be that it was exposed to static electricity while it was being built, in which case you are within your legal right to ask for it to be replaced. If it is static and you need a new videocard, make sure you install it in cotton clothing with rubber gloves and in a room that is tiled or has linoleum flooring. Sure it sounds pretty extremist, but these cards are extremely sensitive.
