    So...
    I think it's my graphics card.
    I can't even start with the PCI-e video so the only option for me was to go to the BIOS and select [onboard] so it can at least display properly.
    I see these green dots and other abnormal video problems at startup.
    gaming gets so crappy :S
    I am currently running onboard and it's somewhat doing the same thing when it's in PCI-e
    what does this mean?
    Here are some screen shots:
    I have NVIDIA 9800GT, but it says something else.
    [​IMG]
    When it starts this happens
    [​IMG]
    or this
    [​IMG]
    and finally this pops up
    [​IMG]
    then the blue physical dump thing comes up...
    ugh I've been trying to fix this all day, im so illiterate right now i can hardly explain the situation...

    Does the onboard show artifacts with the 9800 removed from the system?
    The ati 3200 is the onboard video.

    No, there's no errors, but I can't play games that require high graphics.

    Artifacts usually indicated the graphics cards has been damaged.
    Being as it doesn't do it with onboard,I would say the 9800 is bad.
    If you replace it with another,make sure your power supply can
    handle the load.

    Ha Ha,yeah that old card is definitely baked.:)
    I was talking about the power supply in the computer.
    A 9800 can pull quite a bit of power.
    If it doesn't get enough it can overheat.

    WOOHOO! Ok, so I baked my card and I found out I had warranty on it after...
    But anyways, it worked! Preheated oven at 200 Celsius on bake, placed an aluminum pan backwards, made aluminum balls to hold the card, and placed it on top. Baked for 10 minutes and I was ready to eat success!
    Now, I have the pc on an outlet alone so hopefully this solves other problems! THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP, I actually learned something from this and from you.

    I haven't tried baking a graphics card, but have baked motherboards at 190 degrees F to loosen stubborn CPU heatsinks.

    You should check out some YouTube videos if you are interested. Simply type in, "How to fix your graphics card" and that will do. But I recommend to heat up at 200 degrees Celsius because I did it that way and was successful.
