It is in almost definitely your graphics card as there is a screen being displayed, albeit distorted. Try installing another graphics card and let me know the outcome.

    Your computer takes a PCI express X16 display card which you can purchase from any computer retail store. Price depends on the graphics card memory size and capabilities.
    Hope this helps.

Cant get my tv out to work

Boot in safe mode. (press F8 during boot, just before windows starts loading). If the desktop is then displayed, the graphics card is still functional. I am not very familiar wih NVidia graphics drivers but you may want to check (after a normal reboot) in the NVidia control panel. FIrst try cloning the image (both screens get same picture and resolution) If that doesn't work, try lowering the resolution. When you have found a resolution where the tv does display a picture, extend your dektop to it, set your monitor back to its default resolution, and keep the tv at the resolution you've found works.
If nothing out of all this helps, I think you should try reconnecting (and replacing, if all else fails) the cable connecting PC and tv. If that doesn't solve the problem either, well..then I'm out of ideas. The only option left is that some hardware is broken, and I can't fix that from here.
What you could try is to reinstall your graphics driver, although that is not liely to help, since you've only installed it recently.

I hope this solves your problem,

Fan problem with an ATI graphics card in a Philips PC

If only the fan is the problem, it can easily be replaced by someone who knows what he's doing. Unless you have a lot of experience with things like this, I do not recommend you do it yourself, as there is a risk of you breaking the card. I would suggest you take it to a computer shop and ask someone there to do it for you. If replacing the fan doesn't get it to work, the card is probably broken, and you will need a new one. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Px7300gs-258 stops

There are several things that can cause this. It can be either your monitor, your cable from PC to monitor, or your graphics card.
Try another cable, then another monitor, and if it still doesn't work, try another graphics card.
If any of them fixes the problem, you know what's broken, and you know what you've got to replace.
If even another grapics card doesn't work, but I presume that is the problem, your motherboard is broken.

I hope this helps,

Distorted images

sounds more like a problem with the drivers and/or the settings for resolution or refresh rate, have you tried to boot into safe mode and uninstall the drivers ? Also when you do this you may want to use a regisrty cleaner to remove all traces to the drivers in your registry as some driver do not remove all trace from the registry upon uninstallation.

Dell PC with ATI Radion X1300 Pro using High quality short DVI cables

Hey there Carol H, I would agree that the amplifier is the likely source of the distortion or picture break up. It is the last in the series of steps therefore most likely the problem. Also the problem did not appear until the signal ran through the amplifier, thus indicating that the amp created rather amplify the problem. If your need is to have multiple monitors installed on one machine, I suggest you consider a system which supports Scalable D.G.E., Crossfire, or SLi technology. These allow multiple video cards and therefore multiple connections, as well as improving overall performance, and reducing strain on system resources. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
