I recently installed a new Gainward 5700 Ultra 128Mb Golden Sample card. All was well at the start but the next morning the screen was just random blocks of colour. Was using newest drivers etc. Have tried reinstalling card, drivers, tried the card on a different computer, all getting the same result. The computer still works fine with the old card. So i assumed it's the card.

So my question is, what could have gone wrong?? I have sent the card back and will get a replacement, but I don't want the same thing to happen again.

Dell Dimension 4300
1.6GHz P4
512Mb memory
250W PS
40Gb HD, DVD
Old card is GeForce 2 MX 64Mb

It was just a bad card. Don't sweat it...I'll bet almost anything that the new card won't do that, so you won't have to worry about it.
