The probably maybe due to 2 reasons..
1. your graphics driver is the latest one from nvidia website.
2. you have fried up your gpu or the vram chips.take to a nvidia sevice center.

Did you try overclocking it?That might be the problem too.
Also remember these amd athlon 64 cpus are quite unfriendly with ddr2 vrams especially if its nvidia..

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.

It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

I have a dell laptop d630 latitude. While I had the computer on and was in the process of clilcking in on a game from my desk top, the screen crashed. All I have now is blue/green and black vertical...

It seems the issue is with your Graphic Card/ Or Graphich Card settings.
Restart your machine and Press F8, Choose the second option fro UP. Windows in Display mode. Let it boot properly, Change the Graphich Option Settings to by default. Restart your laptop.

It should work.

Good day My fujitsu siemens esprimo mobile v5555 boots up in windows, but as soon as you want to play a game is turns off, even windows games, could this be the cpu?

it maybe overheating or a driver download the latest graphics/video driver go here and enter you model details
If its overheating - you need to get a can of compressed air and blow out the vents
Do you see a blue screen flash up - if so then you need to turn off autorestart
goto control panel> system>
for XP - advanced tab> for Vista - advanced system settings > - link on left hand side
startup and recovery - settings> under the title - system failure untick - automatically restart;en-us;320299
now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen post the info on the screen it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

Games crashing and icons on my desktop scattering

hi this does sound like your graphics card has a conflict with another device, your best bet would be to go to the site of your graphics card manufacturer and download the latest drivers for your card, un-install ( actually delete ) the graphics card from the system, ie...add and remove programs, look for drivers for your graphics card, then remove, also go to your device manager and delete it from the hardware so there is no trace of it ( don't worry it will still work it will just default to minimal settings on re-boot) re-boot the system, if it says found new hardware and tries to install your card click no you don't want to install it, then find where you downloaded the drivers and install them and then that should stop the blue screens, games..this also could be the sound card has a conflict with something, as i know allot of games just crash to the desktop for this reason, try doing the same for the sound card, download, remove and install, as above...any more probs just reply and i will see what else there is, if you can also post the blue screen error on here to will be helpful as you can determine what the cause is...hope this helps

Arcade game space invaders, may need new

Perhaps the rendering engine is corrupt? Does the board experience any crashing or blue screens inside windows or any other gui? is it only giving you trouble in the game? Perhaps the game was written for an older chipset and cannot be rendered on this platform.

I was playing online games on my sony vaio. Suddenly I got blue lines on the screen and the laptop stopped responding. So I tried restarting the laptop but I get blue thin vertical lines before the laptop...

Blue thin lines before it boots will rule out an operating system or driver fault. So it would appear something in the machine has failed.
Do you have a VGA monitor you can connect to it and see whether it shows the fault? This will show that if the fault also shows on the external monitor, it is likely an electronic fault on the main board, whereas if it works on the external monitor but not on the built-in monitor, my guess would be the cable that goes from the main board up through the hinge of the screen into it, or a connector, or an actual fault with the LCD display.
Windows booting normally once the display drivers were disabled indicates to me that Windows is no longer detecting the faulty display and therefore boots normally - possibly pointing to failed electronics in some way. It could even be corrupt BIOS that controls the video or something along these lines, though that's unlikely.
Good luck, either way it sounds like it's off to a computer repair shop. Is it under warranty?

Blue screen with rows of white lines (not BSOD) causing laptop crash

A blue screen generally indicates an operating system error or hard drive failure. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You will need an operating system or recovery disc in order to do this. If this is a preloaded machine that didn't come with any discs, then you will need to acquire the disc.
