My graphics card needs Jesus

  1. Well, as the title would indicate, I need some help with my graphics card. I have no idea why it keeps on doing what it does but it only seems to do it when I'm gaming. The screen or window will flicker, like the game is going fullscreen or something, then everything turns red and blurry. I have some examples, so I will link pics.

    Any idea what may be the culprit?
    I've tried changing the screen resolution,
    I've tried lowering the color settings on the monitor/desktop/overlay,
    I've tried updating the graphics driver,
    I've tried hardware accelleration,
    I've tried removing the card itself and replacing the same card,
    I've tried using another card I have but that didn't even work because it's too old,
    I've tried upgrading my BIOS,
    Now I'm trying this forum.

    Defective card... Replace.
    Have you checked to assure the graphics card fan is running steadily?

    Fan? Nope, no fan on it. 64MB mem and no fan, but there's a heat sync on it :p

    You likely just don't have enough graphics card for what you want to do... 64MB with no cooling is holding you back.

    I know :( I wish I could afford a better one but I'm stuck because I have a record and a disability. Money is tight these days so it's really hard to find employment. :-/
