Geforce 8500 GT Causes "Snowy" screen

I have recently purchased a new computer and installed an NVIDIA G-GeForce 8500 GT graphics card, i have updated the latest drivers and made sure the inside of my computer is cool. Despite my efforts every problem I fix creates another one, this time its a snowy screen, with random pixels swiching places for no reason at all, programs will occaisonally just CRASH and then there are the times where th computer just shuts itself completely down. Im at a loss as for what to do, this computer is BRAND NEW and everything was woring fine till i installed my new card.

Any ideas?

You have Vista 64 bit right? I looked and the newest nvidia driver is 182.08 located here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_182.08_whql.html

1. Download this driver.
2. Go to the Control Panel, Programs and uninstall the current nvidia driver.
3. Shut down computer.
4. Remove video card and re-install it.
5. Start computer and install new nvidia driver.

I got a blue screen telling that there is a problem with the file


Go to safe mode and uninstall the Graphics drivers and then restart and install the Nvidia Drivers again. Sometimes drivers get corrputed, so this things happens. if ur still getting this, then connect ur monitor directly on motherboards graphics connector and c whether u get this problem again, if ur not getting it means ur graphics card is not good.
