  1. Wassup Everyone,

    My current system stats are P4 1.5 ghz
    Win Xp Pro
    256 RDRAM 800Mhz
    Asus P4T Mboard
    Asus V8200 Geforce 3 Ti 500
    and thats basically it

    Well anyways every time i format , and run windows little lines appear all over my screen whether im in games or desktop. My computer also freezes up and then seizes to freeze for a couple of seconds, then goes back to hell again,Ive changed about oh say 20 drivers around, when i disable my video card driver though and runof standard it works like i am currently doing.

    Plz any help will be great thanks a heap.:)

    What does getting more RAM have to do with that problem?

    Is there anyway you can try a different video card? All you need is another AGP card to try in it. I personally say its probably the video card, since you get lines and such, its probably toast. But you probably ought to try another card in your system before buying a new one. No need to throw away money.
