  1. This Problem show's up when i turn on my computer.Even the provider of my pc couldn't tell me how to fix it.I must turn off and turn on my pc a several times to fix that issue.

    My monitor is getting strange with a strange colors and different shapes.

    Looks like a video card issue. Try plugging in the 8500GT on another working PC to see if the same problem occurs. If it does, it's time for a GPU change.

    It Can't be possible i bought it just like that.It gives me this problem in the first time i turned on the pc,and when i called to the provider of my pc they said nothing.And i am doing this 2 years all ready.It has to be some other issue. i am sorry i cant show you a screenshot i am not allowed to post image links here

    I don't quite get you. What "can't be possible"?

    Did you buy the card 2 years back? Has the card been giving problems right from the time you bought it?

    that seems like they gave you a broken gpu.. that can happen, it has happened to me, your provider should had changed you that card, but if it was 2 years back.. i think you are a little late now
    only solution is trying that card on another computer, or another card in your computer.
