I've been struggling with my computer for a week. I'm exahusted. In a forum I found, someone suggested BurnInTest to diagnose what the problem might be. I've been having graphics problems. The sort that garble my screen and freeze and then on reboot, the display is still garbled. It requires a power down to clear.
I have an Asus A7V 266-e main board.
I'm running an AMD Athlon XP2000+ (1.667 ghz) with 512 mb ram.
I'm running Windows XP Professional.
I have a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 w/ 64 mb ram.
I have a 300w power supply.
I have flashed my bios.
I have reformatted by harddrive.
I have updated my VIA chipset drivers.
I have updated Direct X.
I have updated my graphic card drivers to the most recent Windows Certified version.
I have picked up all the Windows updates.
I thoroughly dusted and cleaned out my case and my fans.
I have reseated my ram and my video card.
None of this changed anything or gave me any new information. So when I saw "2D graphics, error displaying frame" I was ecstatic for a moment. It isn't me, I'm not insane. Then I realized I had no idea what it means in terms of my system. Is my graphics card screwed up? Should I call up Gainward and demand a repair/replacement under my warranty? I feel so close to pinning down exactly what the problem is here, but I need some translation. Any help would be most appreciated.
