Re: picture messed up
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.

Try to boot to safe mode. (Press F8 during start up). Then uninstall the geforce 210 driver. Restart your PC. If the system will start fine w/o the video driver, pretty much you've got a bad video card or it might be a compatibility problem w/ the system board. Other option, try a known good video card so you could easily isolate the problem.
1 unplug Dazzle from USB. turn off pc, restart with out dazzle plugged in. shut down PC, restart then plug dazzle in after PC has restarted fully. if that don't work then go to step 2. ( sometimes using a different USB port works too)
2. uninstall it and reinstall it should work fine. i had the same problem and had to many things in the USB ports at the same time.
I would recomend checking both ends of the connection cable to make sure they are secure and fully connected. If they are and it is still giving you trouble you can try using the monitor on another conputer. If the issue stays with the monitor then it is time to replace it. If the issue is only on your pc then it could be an issue with your video card/chipset.
If that is the case you can atempt to reinstall the video drivers by downloading updated drivers from the mfg web site for your video card. If still having issues then it may be time to replace/upgrade your video card to a new one.
Either your graphics card has gone bad or - the PCI Express slot on the motherboard has failed. Alternately you could put the card in another computer and see if it works. you could take it to a local pc shop and have it tested. I work for TechSupportPros of Spokane, WA - I would test the card for free.
1. Try to start in SAFE Mode by press f8 while booting. If successfull.
2. Press F8 again select enable VGA mode and continue.
3. Your monitor is not supporting the resolution reduce and restart it will work fine.
4 To reduce the resolution desktop right click, select properties goto tab setting - reduce resolution
as your primary pc now has a working graphics card . I would guess your graphics card is fried in all honesty there is really no hope in repairing it especially for the cost of one of those cards, if you are simply using your second pc for non graphic intensive apps then I am sure you could find an ol pci grpahics card down the local dump for next to nothing hope this helps.
