  1. How to know if graphic card is damaged ?

    can someone plz tell me how would a person know if their graphic card is damaged?

    I've been having problems with my display and i don't know if its my gfx or not. My screen shows all these checkered textures and i cant play a single game without experiencing texture/color problems.

    I did an artifact scan using "ATI TOOL" and i saw that in the 3D display that the 'cube' had all these yellow checkered squares on them (LINK BELOW)

    DL a new video driver for your card

    uninstall your current one

    install the new video driver

    and upgrade your DirectX
