So, I buy this stuff to build a new system with....
P4 3.2G HT 800fsb
Gigabyte 81915P Duo Pro
Corsair 512DDR2 Daul Channel
ABit Radeon RX600 Pro Guru
Antec 480W True Power
I put it all together, and after a slight issue with IDE channels, as I was too poor to buy a SATA HDD, I get it all working fine.
Then after about a month, I start getting strange colour glitches on the screen, which quickly became full scale graphics problems when going through post, to the extent that I can't even read whats going on before XP boots.
I assume graphics card error, and contact my supplier, who take the graphics card back and test it, they claim it is fault free. OK, so a friend advises me it must be the motherboard, so that gets sent back to Gigabyte, who test it, replace components (they don't say which) and return it saying it is now in perfect working order.
Today (almost 8 months after purchasing the parts) I rebuild the system, boot it up (without windows installed) and still get the graphical errors during post, I can't read the screen, its just black and white garbage.
Right that's the story.......do you have any ideas what may be causing this ?
Thanks for your help in advance,
