Question about ASUS GeForce 6800 GT 256MB DDR3 AGP 8X Video Card with TV-Out, DVI, VGA, DirectX 9.0: V9999GT/TD (Re... Graphic Card
When the tower starts to boot up the picture is fuzzy with squares and lines and wont fully boot the pc restarts its fine with a 64mb card i have a 500w psu please help
Try removing the video card & clean the copper contacts with a couple drops of house hold alcohol on a cotton swab. Use canned air to blow out the AGP slot. Blow out the video card's fan as well.
Re-insert the video card & make sure it is firmly seated in the AGP slot. If you're still having the same trouble when you start up, try another AGP 8x card. You're 6800 may be going bad. My bet is the video card is dusty & not seated 100%.
If you are thinking it might be the power supply, don't! When that goes, nothing will work. System restarts by its self can mean the CPU fan is dirty with lots of dust. You can blow this out as well. If it looks real dusty use a clean paint brush to help clean the fan. Don't be too rough with the brush. You don't want to break a fan blade.
