    Hi guys, I turned on my pc to find the resolution stuck at its minimum and color stuck at 4 bit, it had what looked like scan lines on the screen and colors gone crazy, I deleted drivers, uninstalled drives, even booted a fresh windows, and still the same, its a nvidia geforce 8400 gs card with in Intel machine, I can't text for anything more from home, looking for an opinion before giving it to a shop, could be card be dead? Thanks for any help, sorry for no screen shots or formatting I'm doing this from phone

    That sounds like a video card dying. Try another monitor if you have one to be sure.

    Yes, I'm quite sure that it is anyway, but it doesn't hurt to check the monitor.
