Out of no where, the card now displays all types of graphical corruption on
the screen. Serious ghosting issues, redraw problems, etc.

All of the usual things tried: Reinstall drivers, swapped cards, updated
BIOS settings and drivers, checked all fans (CPU,GPU,PCI), etc.

No AGP problems as I reinstalled my old GF 4 card and I don't have any
problems there.

Running XP Pro, 512RAM, 3.4 Intel CPU, Intel D865Perl Mobo.

Anyone else have this kind of problem? I'm at my wits end here.

Thanks
Gus

Do you have a temp sensor on that card? What are the readings? If it
persists, I might almost think a sticker got left on the core during
manufacture. :)

Everything other than ghosting seems to indicate artifacting from
overclocking/overheating.

The temp says 39C. I run it with the side panel open and a house fan blowing
on it as well.

Thanks for the reply!

Your card is faulty - get it replaced under warranty.

My old GeForce 4 TI4400 did *exactly* the same thing - replacement card
cured it.

That's exactly what I did. Now I must wait for a new card to be sent from
XFX. Actually they refuse to send a new one first. They want to "test" the
old one before they send out a replacement.
