Angry My graphics card is a (insert cuss here).

Graphic Glitch.jpgPink Line Glitch.jpg

This is what my beautiful ATI 9700 Radeon displays. I have used Dell Live Chat support and they have no idea how to fix. I, myself has re-installed the drivers many times. And yet these wonderful blue lines still show up, sometimes they're pink, like cotton candy .

And you know what? Iv'e came up with three possibilities why this is doing this.

A. Ati ****ed up.
B. My graphics card is a piece of **** and never worked correctly.
C. Dell ripped me off.

I may buy a new one soon, however this one is getting smashed.

Also sorry for the bad quality picture. So what do you guys think about this?

Besides A, B and C I think I know the problem. Maybe the graphics card is overheating? Because I know the fans are broken on my computer.

Ive seen that on a graphics card overclocked to unsafe levels. so, my vote is for an overheated card. tried running any diags to see how hot it is running? would offer a quick answer.

I need to know the type of cuss you had in mind. Different cusses mean different problems.

Yeah, I would assume it is overheated by a long shot, because when I turn off my computer for about 10-15 min. it goes back to normal. My uncle told me it's probably overheated. The thing is I don't know how to check how it is running.

You know I would tell you, but I don't really know the rules regarding cuss words.
