    Same issues on my PC. lines, low res, code 43. Drivers all OK. took the pc to someone...unplugged the dual 8800 GT cards, restarted the system and they seem OK now. Maybe they were overheating? I had to remove dust and stuff when I opened the tower. (I'm only an pc enthusiast but can fix "some" things. LOL). I'm hoping that was it. Left the unit with the techie for more RAM and new hard drive (transfer) as long as the unit was there....will double check the cards and be certain the drivers are identical as I had unistalled, sweeped, reinstalled, upgraded, updated, etc. to see if that would work but it did not. Might not even have the mirror drivers in the two card at this point after all I did t the unit. I will be watching this thread to see if anyone comes up with something more concrete. I'm not convinced I need one or even two new video/graphic cards since the system seemed to work fine at the shop....hmmmm. Has run beautifully for almost two years now with no issues. Hoping it was dust and possible heat. Thanks for listening.
