    The vid card has some problems.. Could be overheating, overclocking, bad video RAM, bad drivers. Do you get screen corruption outside of Windows too? A la BIOS logo screen or the initial WIndows logo? If yes, then it is a hardware issue.

    Why are you in safe mode?

    Try and borrow a card off someone to make 100% sure, but 99% chance it's FUBAR.

    If it isn't overclocked & you are getting that much, um, artifacting for want of a better word, it's bin material.

    It's obviously AGP, you should be able to find suppliers clearing old stock - ie 6600GT, maybe even 7xxx series etc relatively cheap and giving huge performance boost.

    yeah the GF3's are very old. Be thankful its lasted this long, lol.
    Fragrant Coit i think has the best idea. Buy an old stock 6600GT on AGP.
