Hi selrath

Is your video card integrated into the motherboard or is it an add-on card?

The reason I ask, is that is sounds like a memory related issue to me. If it is an add-on card, then this would suggest the problem may be with the video ram, as opposed to shared system ram.
The only other possibility (and this is a long shot) is that it may be over heating. Have you checked the system temperatures at all?

the video card im using is NOT the one i got when i bought the computer..
but i know it must work. because before the First re install of windows the graphic worked just fine!

How do i check the system temperature or if the card is over heated?

sry about the technical crap.... mobo is ur motherboard the slot is your AGP/PCI e slot where you plug your graphics card in. You can unplug it and use compressed air to clean out the slot if there's any dirt inside. PSU is your power supply unit the big box on the top of your case. If you have put any new parts in your computer recently and your PSU doesn't have enough power than it will have trouble running the gfx card. do you have another computer or access to one? you can plug your card into that computer and see if there are any problems.
