Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

    I just got two of the proformance version 8800gts for free from someone that wasn't sure if they worked.. both of them where giving bad red, or blue lines, and then doing mem errors, and rebooting. I tried this fix on each of them.... and it worked on both of them! first on one, then on the other.. my second one is cooling on the table right now and so far so good! I'll try sli tomarrow and see if they work together.. but they are a huge upgrade from my 8600gt cards. Thanks for the fix!!!!

Blue vertical lines


Hi, I am sorry you are having issues with your graphics card.

Yes the oven trick does work but it is only temporary and you will have to do that process over and over until the card just all out quits responding. Once a GPU begins to display multicolored or blue lines across the monitor its time to put it out to pasture so to speak.

Nvidia 8800 gts graphics card willnot work properly since upgrading tiwindows 7


hi makemtakem

please check as you might be using the WDM or the windows drivers included in the Windows 7 installation. You may want to try to upgrade to the latest drivers found on the nvidia website itself. www.nvidia.com some features for the card specially gaming features are not fully functional with just the WDM drivers since this is already outdated.

hope this helps, please let me know

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.
