    lo all

    I give you my specs first then tell you the problem and hopefully you can help me :)

    Asus P5K Premium
    Intel Core2 Quad Q6600
    BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS OC2 320MB PCIe
    2x1 GB Corsair Dominator
    2x150 GB WD raptor in raid0(stripe)
    Enermax 850 Watt PSU
    Vista Home Premium

    I was playing crysis demo when the game crashed and my PC froze so I rebooted only to have these unusual blocks appear on the POST screen and then on the windows loading screen. When the windows loading screen finished my screen went black and nothing happened so i rebooted into safe mode reinstalled graphics drivers and rebooted. didnt work!
    so I back into safe mode, uninstalled drivers and rebooted. this time windows loads normally and I get default crappy vista drivers for my GC. however there are annoying lines running down the screen. so I check monitor on another PC. Works fine.
    now the most annoying thing is that I cannot screenshot these lines. they dont capture.:eek: I dont have a camera either.
    I cannot think of a good way of describing them while in windows, there just still lines going vertically though my montiot but pre-windows on one screen after POST I get blocks of colour with < and ? symbols in them.

    so i checked all connections inside and outside PC. refitted the GC. still with the annoying lines
    I even left my pc off for 30 minutes! no joy.

    any ideas??
