HELP ME!!! graphics card going INSANE!!! and taking me with it!

  1. One day, randomly, without having done any changes in my computer for the past few weeks at the least, my video card started, well for lack of a better word, "spazzing out".

    Whenever it is asked to perform anything, (videos, games, etc.) the picture is distorted and twisted out of recognition and it flashes annoyingly. From what i can see it looks like the picture (whether it is a game title-screen or a dvd) is twisted over some triangular polygon that is not supposed to exist, stretching and distorting the edges.

    Basically, my video card is useless except for using my xp desktop and surfing the net (without videos, mind you.)

    I have an ASUS geForce 6200 TC, 256mb supported and untweaked. thank you!!!

    Call up NVidia and sue them. No, but really that is pretty crazy. I have no idea man, sorry.

    Just check if the card is overheating. That could be the issue.

    Good luck!
