7600 not displaying proper

  1. While playing some game a month ago my screen became all green and purple with squares everywhere it was like some terrible mspaint job. I took out my 7600 gt , after restarting multiple times and barely able to see the screen, and it fixed the problem. Is it unsual for 7600s to fry like this? I bought it used off a friend but his still works fine and its not like i played any graphic extensive games on it just call of duty 4 and doom 3 and lesser graphical intensive games. Is there anyway to tell visually if a video card is fried?

    "I took out my 7600 gt, and after restarting multiple times, barely being able to see the screen, it fixed the problem"...

    You took out the 7600GT and used the on-board video? Video cards can fail any time for many reasons. Somtimes you can see damage, most times you can't
