I also have encountered that kind of problem before with my friend's unit. Your graphics card might be fried up. Pull out your video card from the slot and clean the motherboard connector from your video card (referring aligned gold colors) using eraser. When done, insert it again into the graphics card slot properly. See if there are still multi colored or jumbled letters. If still it persists, try to insert your video card to other computer unit if it is really working or not. If it has the same problem then that's the time to change your video card.

*Drop me a comment so I can assist you if you have problems.

Card didn't work while fan is running


That is a really low end video card. The same card is available for $10-30 on bidding sites. Get another one or upgrade to something with more horsepower if you like games or watch video. Just make sure your motherboard will support the new video card. THe one you looks to be a standard PCI (older format).

Xps 1530 graphics problem


Your laptop appears to have decent specs. Did you update drivers to you video card, Nvidia,or windows updates to video lately? You could go to Device Manager> Display Adapter>right click >Properties on NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS - and open properties> Driver> Update Driver or roll back driver.
Assumeing there has not been any damage to the monitor. You could always try a system restore or system recovery. If it's a software problem that would clear it, if it's a hardware problem it will move with the restore/recovery most likely.
Let me know how it works.

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card


Mike,

I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

I have an old dell dimension 2400 and I am trying to install an nvidia geforce fx 5500 pci card and I keep getting a blue screen when windows gets to the desktop.


If the blue screen appears only if the video card is plugged in that only means it's not compatible with your computer. If you want to know what video cards you can use for that computer try to go to this link.

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu


Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Garbled display with Geforce 7600GS


From experince I would still say this is a heat issue, I just went though this with my HD4870 ATI card. I was using an after market cooler wich was insuficent for cooling. All the symptoms point to a heat issue. Also since the card is 2 years old, its a good chance the VRM's have fried and any heat causes the card to basicaly shutdown in a manner of speaking. you could try getting the Accelero S1 cooler that would replace the fan on the card, then attach 2X120mm fans. Only problem is you can buy a newer better card. for example the 8600 GT is about 80-90$
