    ok i knocked my computer against the wall by mistake with my leg. and it must of done something to the cords to the graphics card. my screen turned off then on, then changed colors RED GREEN PINK BLUE(i think those colors anyway) really quickly. then back to normal, ever since then fps in games such as call of duty 2 have declined by alot. i use to get 333fps. now i get 120? not even that at constant. and then recently my monitor turned itself off completely. turns out i had to replace a cord from the monitor to the computer, or the monitor to power point (i cant remember).
    would my graphics card be damaged or something els in my computer?, ive taken out my graphics card, cleaned it a little from dust etc.. put it back in, updated drivers etc.. but just still stays the same, any help would be appreciated thanks
    i have a 7600GT, if you need any other information just tell me, my computer isnt old either, about1 year.

    Relax buddy,

    The only reason I ask is, dependong on the knock, it may have moved something else in the case. something not quite apparent.

    Maybe moved a stick of mem or 2, or dislodged a card.

    The best thing to do is...Power off completely, ie at the mains.

    And make sure everything is sat properley ( ie RAM,VGA,HDD)

    Then reboot..(y)
