  1. So i have been building systems for about 2 years now and ive never had this problem before. Afterinstalling everything i started playing a few games and all of a sudden my game crashes and i get a video driver missing. Also these lovely areas of pixilation are now on my screen in neon blue, green, and pink. I turned the machine off opened it up and thought i found the prob. The 6800 wasnt screwed on so it was hanging on by the pci express slot. So i pulled it out put it back, screwed it on, and did a complete reinstall of the system. Im still having probs. The problem is only there when using the 6800+ as my graphics card when i disable it i have no probs. The bios are up to date as well as the graphics drivers any ideas?? could the card not be compatible with the board cause it worked for a while or did the dangling by the pci slot damage it in less then a day??
