When it boots there are all these lines and squares/rectangles,etc all over as its booting and also in Windows. I can barely see anything.

So it looks like it does it from the off.

Which to me looks like it is the vid card.

Not necessarily, or at least that's not how I read it.

If it does it in Safe Mode as well, then it's a hardware problem.

If not, then it's only a software problem, and more than likely driver.


Easy to tell, try in Safe Mode....

I managed to figure out where everything was to uninstall the driver and reinstall but it still does it. I guess i'll have to hope that ATI will RMA it for me

You still haven't answered whether or not it does it in Safe Mode?

Anyway, good luck and have fun.

As far as RMA, with a 3rd party cooling fan??? You're screwed. That will definitely void the warranty. Could have been the reason for the early demise of your video card. Or perhaps it isn't receiving proper cooling with the 3rd party fan??? Hmmmm?? Maybe it's not dead?
