    Hey Gang,

    I pulled a marathon session yesterday taping from my computer to my VCR. I was doing this for 12 hours. When I got to my last tape I noticed the computer was freezing.

    I tried rebooting several times and each time it frooze after five minutes. Finally I unplugged it and left it sit overnight.

    When I came back I still frooze. Sometimes when I reboot it get black and white lines, other times I just get a white screen.

    It always goes before five minutes. Right now I disconnected the graphics card and put an old one in.

    Is my graphics card dead or is there anything I can do to revive it?

    The card is an Nvidia AGP3 128DDR FX5200.

    thanks,
    HULK!
