    What wolfram meant was that it would help if you had a fan in the front of your case that will blow air in and one on the back to blow air out.

    Replacing the heatsink on the card is definitely an option, seeing that coolers from Zalman, specifically the ZM-VHS1 that's made for ur card, are available for around $6 which is approximately 360 rupees over there.

    Umm rik, I think he means the desk-top, not the PC itself.

    Well, folks I think i will now sort out my problem. You guys are a great help. Accept my heartiest congrats to the moderators and all friends for hosting such a good forum.

    Specially to Rage and Rik as they constantly shared with me their very helpful tips and suggestions.

    I did realize that. Just wondered if he had suffered a gpu recovery and the pc had gone into 8 bit colour quality or something.

    So LegendMind, is it fixed and working properly now?

    Yes, the system is working fine as soon as I used the fan to cool it down. Now I am in my office. I shall post a pic of the current looks of my desktop :) on returning home in the evening.

    By the way one thing I am concerned about is that occasionally when my system boots up during RAM checking (when system counts the available physical memory as I have disabled 'fast boot up' option in my BIOS), The counter stops randomly at 125MB or 315MB or any xxxMB and an error is displayed saying "R/W memory error press F4 to continue".

    When I restart the system (Alt+Ctrl+Del) the system counts the RAM as usual and successfully counts to 1024MB and just no problem at all.

    The above mentioned problem happens occasionally as I have observed it for 6 to 7 times since I bought the system i.e. about a week ago and have done about 75 or so boots approximatly. :)

    Run memtest on your ram.

    Do it ASAP because bad RAM will start causing BSODs very soon.
