    Can anyone tell me what are the typical signs of a bad video card ?? What types of things occur prior to it going out ? :confused: Can anyone that has replaced a video card offer any installation tips?? I'm running WinMe if that matters.

    Many possibilities but I would say you notice it failing, but always better to test it in another PC.

    One easy test is to connect a known working monitor to your computer. If you don't get good video, it is typically the video card or motherboard (I've seen it be both).
