Hi
I have an old GPU, Its GeForce 7100GS
Few days ago i overclocked it for seconds but there was not big difference with performance and i set again default settings back. I used NVidia overclocking tool.
Next day when i was playing game it freezed for seconds and there was some green or colored strips in game or in benchmarks. Its old GPU but it was doing its job well until this day.
Any suggestions what might be the problem? GPU or any other part
Thanks

Sorry, sounds like the card has finally failed, that is called artifacting, and is basically unrepairable. the fact is that that is a very bad low end card depending on what you are trying to do we might be able to help find you a good card to replace it with. If you would like to do that please post all system specs processor, motherboard, case(form factor), power supply.

Hope this helps have a great day.
