No, it can’t happen on a weekday morning, but always on a Friday evening after tech support has gone home for the weekend-extra props for a Thursday night before a major holiday.
Anyhoo, I now have wavy green lines on my display (which will only work in safe mode)-I was playing a game for several hours when the problem hit. Yes, I shut things down, took the machine outside and hosed down the fans with compressed air, let her sit & cool for 30 minutes, still got the wavy lines. I’m going to try the latest Nvidia driver, but I’m not hopeful.
Windows Vista 32 bit
Quad core Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
4 megs RAM
What new video card would you recommend in the Nvidia line (had the machine for 14 months now, may be time for an upgrade anyway)? Doubt Comp USA is open tomorrow-and if someone comes along and says not to go to them I won’t really argue. Open to ideas.
