Ati Radeon 8500 : screen flickers very often

Q: Ati Radeon 8500 : screen flickers very often


Recently I bought a ATI Radeon 8500 64Mb. Since I installed it, my screen flickers very often and I can only see lines of color. It happens randomly in different programs (Outlook, IE, Netscape, games, etc...).

I have Windows Me with Direct X8.1. DxDiag tells me that Direct3D works fine but when testing DirectDraw, it keeps crashing. I do have the latest video driver, latest BIOS update for my motherboard... I even tried the drivers from, but the same problem occurs... I must say that this is my first AGP video card, so I do not know if it is a hardware problem with the video card, the motherboard (which is not a recent one: Abit BX6 rev.2), a driver problem or something else... Any suggestions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

When I play my games I find that I get less lag and less problems with the 8500 then my 9600.. Mind you a 8500 was bought second hand..

The computer with the 9600 haves better and more of Ram, cpu, and motherboard a newer model..
Sence I started to play Wow my 9600 is acting up with the Gamma. Every other game that I do play my gamma keeps reseting on me.. Even on my desktop. It gets realy dark..

How could this make sence, that a old used up 8500 works better then a newer 9600? Could it be my powersupply? 350W

A:Is Radeon 8500 better then Radeon 9600?

Hi Ludwig,
The 9600 is an AGP 8x, DirectX 9.0 videocard.

The 8500 is a DirectX 8.0(8.1) videocard and therefore is limited in support when games query features.

Running a game on the 8500 may be a totally different game on a 9600, as the 9600 can enable much more detail, higher pixel/vertex shader support and a plethora of other advanced features. For this reason, even a beefier system may perform lesser than a slower system with an 8500. It's because many of the newer DirectX 9.0 features also take a toll on the CPU/memory and mainboard performance.

As far as Gamma goes- this would suggest something may be misconfigured with your installation of the ATI drivers on the 9600, or that system may have left-over components from previous drivers. This is pretty easy to have happen. I'd recommend obtaining Driver Cleaner Pro at Install this, run it's Live Update to get the latest cleaners... but don't run it. Use the Control Panel/Add-Remove programs and uninstall ALL ATI drivers here first.. then reboot in safe mode and run Driver Cleaner Pro (safe mode/administrator).. After this, in normal mode again, try the latest drivers from ATI.

So i bought this saphire radeon le mb version off of allstarshop com for a computer i was building i had problems with the video of the system and i started messing around with all kinds of settings bios jumpers the works i even replaced the graphics card with a tnt that my friend gave me it was really stupid of me to do and when i figured out with Help 8500 radeon the problem was the mother board drivers were outdated and i updated them the video was perfect all the drivers worked it was great then Help with radeon 8500 when i tried to put the back in and install its drivers i got an error message when i booted up saying card not recognized or invaled video driver so i tried to put the into another computer and it woulldnt even boot up so i am thinking that it might be a problem with a corrupt video bios or something of that nature it seems that when i use that card in that particular machine it will boot up and show video but its like it is when it first boots into windows for the first time low res low refresh basically really slow graphics my best guess is the bios is messed up so the card isnt being recognized properly but i cant find the bios for that card anywhere i was wondering if someone would put in thier imput to the situation and maybe thier diagnoses thanks so much nbsp

A:Help with radeon 8500

IMO,,Try the Radeon in a more "User Freindly" OS like win98se.
with winXP if you try swapping to another Chipset,thing get real weird.
Also try a "Repare Install" of XP if that is the OS you are using.
i saw something in your post that i myself came across "i even replaced the graphics card with a tnt2 that my friend gave me"
What was your Original Cipset?

Hi i want to know is there are performance diferences with these cards, cuz i know there are tech diferences, but at last what a gamer whants to know if is going to give more fps in games.

thanks =)

ps: i know the gf4 gives more fps but is it worth it?

A:IS the radeon 8500, better, than gf3 or gf4?

I think the GF4 is above and beyond the GF3 and the ATi Radeon 8500. Between the GF3 and the Ati its a toss up. Personally I go with the Gf3 because of Nvidia's excellent driver support. They are both very fast cards with excellent imaging. I feel that Nvidia's AA is better than Ati's.

A:How far have you OC:ed your ATI Radeon 8500?

295/295, with no extra cooling. It lasts a good 4 hours before becoming unstable during intense gaming. Otherwise, it's always stable.

High instensity RTCW sessions seem to heat it up a little too much for it's teeny fan to handle Those new 6037 drivers are pretty good. Not a HUGE improvement, but an improvement nonetheless. (couple more fps it seems in RTCW)

---I have the official ATi Radeon 8500. (only $140 at all Best Buy's for the time being).

Hello sir! The pic provided is just too far away from the card to get any necessary details. Do you have the card in your possession at the moment? Why not pop it in and see what the Video BIOS says? That's one way to find out.

my patience is wearing thin and i'm afraid i can hardly wait any longer...
what i want to know is if i could revert back to the previous driver installed if i installed the beta (newest for win2k) one?

Looks like you just click on the “Display driver” link and it installs with prompts:

If you would feel more comfortable starting with the page where you select your OS and card start from here:

I guess I missed a previous thread you assume everyone is familiar with, so I can’t make any suggestions other than say that is the driver ATI says is the current one for your card and OS.

So I recently purchased the new Windows 7 home edition and installed it on my other two laptops. This was very quick and easy, however on my desktop I'm having one huge issue. I can't find drivers for my ATI Radeon 8500 video card. Since I play a lot of games it's pretty much useless at this point. I was wondering if there was anyone else who has had and has resolved this problem, or if there is another way for me to fix this issue. Thanks

A:ATI Radeon 8500 Drivers!?

There were never any Vista drivers for the 8000 series ATI cards either as will not support the Aero interface, you can install the XP drivers by right clicking on the Setup.exe file and running in compatibility mode(providing it's the 32bit version of Win7).

Building a new computer and Im on a strict budget. Im limiting the video card to $100. I found an 8500 125mb card for $99. I had a Rage Fury in my first computer and ATI really sucked when it came to drivers but Ive been reading thet they have gotten it together in that area. I was looking at gForce 3 cards but they seem to have gone up in price. The Xabre 400 Pro with 128mb is $100 and looks good but Im hesitant to try a new product. Thanks

A:Thoughts on Radeon 8500????

I love mine.

I'd say go for it, it's really a nice card and blows any equivalent-priced GF3 out of the water.

I'd also say stick with nVIDIA or ATi, just for the sake of compatibility.

Hi guys You may remember that I got myself a pretty Pro a couple of weeks ago I Radeon won't 8500 any work more. then decided to replace the GF MX in the Radeon 8500 won't work any more. PC of my girlfriend by the one I had before in my PC a Radeon In my PC it worked absolutely without any trouble Radeon 8500 won't work any more. The GF MX worked fine in her PC also Now that I have pu the in her PC it won t work any more She has a cough Packard Bell cough computer which is not that bad Athlon XP If I use the or catalyst drivers I can t even go past the XP loading screen After it switches to the resolution I have set x on a quot monitor it goes black with some color pixels scattered there and everywhere What I don t understand is that I also have the same monitor and was using the same resolution on my PC without any trouble but I had not XP I tried to install the cats also With those I can boot up but eventually after like minutes the VPU recover thing says the GPU has crashed and the display is switching to software and bits I also tried to do a clean XP install new HDD and it s absolutely the same I have no clue of what I can do with that stuff Try alternate drivers DNA others Some other ideas nbsp

A:Radeon 8500 won't work any more.

I would suggest putting back in the GF2 and completely uninstalling the old drivers, then reboot, and put in the 8500 and go from there.
Although with a fresh install on a new HDD, that doesn't make sense. I'd try putting it back in your box to verify it still works.

A couple of weeks ago I replaced my Geforce 256 by a Geforce 4mx. But as several people advised me I brought it back and bought a Radeon 8500 instead. But after I had built it in I didn`t get a significant performance boost. I got about 30 FPS in JK2 timedemo with both Geforce4mx and Radeon 8500 and about 6000 marks in 3Dmark 99 max also with both cards (vsynch off). In 3Dmark 2001 SE I get about 5100 marks with the Radeon (I don´t know about the Geforce 4mx). What could be the problem or is this all the performance I can expect from a Radeon 8500 and a Celeron 1,2 ?

A:Geforce 4mx = Radeon 8500 ?

Indeed it might be the Celeron the culprit in this equation. Do you know the exact type of Radeon 8500 you have bought ? What drivers are you running ? There are OEM versions circulating with lower specs then the Original Radeon 8500.

Radeon 8500 -> 275 mhz Core / 550 mhz DDRam
Radeon 8500 LE -> 250 mhz Core / 500 mhz DDRam
Radeon 8500 LELE ->225 mhz Core / 450 mhz DDRam

I haven't tested a GF4MX but I've installed 2 Radeon 8500 cards & I must say they worked very well ( granted they were running on AthlonXPs ).

Have you tryed any other games ?

What does the "LE" mean and which is better?

A:ATI Radeon 8500 Question.

the 8500 LE is the "limited" version some of the features of the 8500 are disabled on the LE version. they are disabled by the bios and there are bios's flashes that can renable those features if your brave enough to risk trashing your card if the bios flash goes bad.

Just poking here, but do you have a modem installed on that mobo? If so, try removing the video card, drivers and all, then remove the modem and any drivers that are installed, and then pull the plug, physically remove both of the cards, replacing ONLY the video card for now. If all boots up ok try loading the drivers for the vid card then. If that goes ok then try the modem. There may be another issue involved, but with the problems modems can cause, I would take a shot and at least eliminate it as a resource conflict of some kind.

Good Luck!

Hello all,

I'm trying to run Knights of the Old Republic 2 and appear to have the minumum requirements covered comfortably - 1.7 Ghz processor, Windows XP, DirectX 9 installed, 512 MB RAM etc. I have a Radeon 8500 which is at the low end of the min requirements but is supported, and I've installed ATI Catalyst 5.1 which I think is the best update for the card.

When I run the game the LucasArts and other intro images appear fine, but on the first game menu the graphics are totally distorted. I've checked out that DirectX is working as it should be as in the TweakGuides, but to no avail.

Could anyone suggest where the problem might lie and what I could try from here?

Im running WinXp as my Os, and recently picked up a Radeon 8500 vid card, and for the longest time it crashed constantly, froze up, fragmented all the text on the screen etc.

On the Web i found a solution to my problems, it suggested that i delete the files within my "minidump" folder and set my virtual memory settings so "No paging file". This seems to have worked I am not crashing/freezing anymore, but now when running particular games the game crashes because there isnt enough Virtual Memory.

Is there anyway to achieve a happy medium? Any advice would be a great help.

A:Radeon 8500 & virtual memory

I trust you have the latest driver:!

If you both eliminated virtual memory and emptied the minidump to fix the problem try turning the virtual memory back on.

Most games don’t write to virtual memory with 256mb RAM. I would do a serious pruning of your startup items: and Ctrl+Alt+Del to end task on anything you don’t need before running games.

I just recently upgraded to windows 7 ultimate and i can't seem to find a driver for my video card. It's an ati radeon 8500 (LE) with 128mb. I already downloaded the generic package driver from ati for w7 with no success, and i even tried using an XP driver which was almost "fatal". I already read somewhere that the card was discontinued over 3 yrs ago along with any driver updates. Only thing preventing me from upgrading to a newer card and the main REASON for looking for the driver is that i use the s-video out port a lot. I would settle for even a 3rd party driver as long as it works... if no luck im going to need to downgrade back to XP

A:ATI Radeon 8500 driver for Windows 7

I spent about an hour on this and found a solution. Go to ATI's support site:

Download that package, extract it but DO NOT INSTALL IT. Then open device manager and click on "Update driver" for the graphics card, which in my case was reading "Generic VGA blah blah blah." Then, click on "Browse my computer for driver software." Specify the location which you have extracted the catalyst software to, the default being:


It will install the new driver automatically. Restart and bazinga.

Note: The first time I reinstalled my screen freaked out like it had short circuited. However, I also made many other changes before restarting. Upon restarting in safe mode, uninstalling the driver, and then booting up normally and installing only the Radeon 8500 drive everything worked fine. I recommend setting the resolution to the lowest possible numble, 800x1024 or something before restarting to ensure you do not encounter maximum resolution problems that your monitor may not be capable of supporting.

I have a radeon 8500 and connected it to my tv the first time using the S-video out. Everything is great, my divx movies, and video games look good but I could barely read any text from the tv. If the text are large then I could see some of them, but blurry. I think I adjusted every possible setting on my video card, and on the tv. IS this the was it is suppose to be, or are there any other options and hidden sitches I can configure? Thanks to anyone that can help.

A:Blurry text on video out, from radeon 8500

This is normal, because the highest resolution a regular tv will do is 800x600, and generally 640x480. So it will always display text very very bad. Unelss you get a high definition tv that has the capabilities of doing 1024x768.

This is a problem I ve had for quite a while now I ll try to explain it as in depth as I can Radeon ATI 8500 with 8KHA+ Epox hangs Before I had the ATI Radeon card I had a Voodoo on the same mobo Epox 8KHA+ hangs with ATI Radeon 8500 everything worked fine and I was quite amazed by the extreme stability of the Epox mainboard I actually never managed to crash that configuration once Then I tried to voltage mod my Epox Epox 8KHA+ hangs with ATI Radeon 8500 mobo but that didn t go to well I fried the mobo but end of that story I had preordered my new ATI card a few months back and finally got it but I didn t have my new Epox mobo yet so I just put the card into my other computer with an Abit KT A mobo and everything worked perfectly fine no stability problems or visual artefacts at all But then when I got my new Epox mobo back the problems began I had the same components in it as from the beginning only thing is that now the computer would always crash and display visual artefacts Ok I thought must be a faulty mobo but still something about that statement didn t sound right so just to be sure I put my ATI card in the old mobo again and sure enough it ran stability tests H in a row without crashing Ok then I thought I d just send in the Epox mobo as faulty but still this didn t feel right after all I ve never in my life heard of a quot DOA quot Epox mobo So I borrowed a Geforce TI from a friend and ran stability tests on the Epox mobo for H in a row but it didn t crash then either and neither did it display visual artefacts So to sum it up It can t be the ATI card being faulty I ve run that for H without stability or visual Artefacts on my Abit mobo Neither can it be the Epox mobo since I ve run stability test on that with a GF for H without any crashes or visual artefacts It can t be the drivers either because I ve run the two configurations with the exact same installation Install Win Install VIA in and latency patch Install DirectX a Install win GFX driver And on the computer with the Abit KT A mobo this config ran H straight on the Epox it barley runs one minute and that is with visual artefacts Though the GF could run this config for H without crashing Also mind you that these are quot clean quot installs i e I ve done a format between every change of hardware If I am to worsen the already strange problem lowering the frequency of the quot Built by ATI quot ATI Radeon Retail card with a default core memory clock frequency of mhz does infact allow the card to run longer up to minutes with some luck though remember that on my other computer it can run in full speed for H so it s not a problem with the card itself And this takes us to where I believe the problem lies Do you remember the old Creative VIA debate over which one of them was guilty of who created the infamous quot crackly quot noise If a Creative card was put on a VIA mobo it often created crackly sound but paired with an Intel board no crackle was present Though if you just went and bought a Hercules soundcard or whatever and paired it with your VIA mobo everything worked perfectly so it would seem both VIA and Creative was guilty and I m willing to bet that the same thing is happening here So what I d like to hear now is your side of the story do you have the same problems or does your comp run fine I sure want to know And before I forget it here is an easy was to reproduce the bug first download DMark SE start it and select Tests gt Change click quot clear quot and only tick quot Point Sprites quot the spinning white horse click quot ok quot Now Options gt Change and tick the two buttons at the top quot disable title screens quot and quot looping quot Now click quot ok quot and quot benchmark quot Though this isn t the only way to reproduce the bug just take your favourite game I for example can t finish a single lap in Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed The visual artefacts I m talking about are also a good indication of the problem my monitor can t cause them beca...

I'd set it to 1x AGP, no fastwrites, 64 mb apperture & try to run windows. If it works without a hitch, I'd re-enable each function in the BIOS one at a time & let windows run for a few hours for each function.

A BIOS update could also be a good idea ( unless you've tryed that allready ).

A couple of questions.

Is this a new card for you, or have you had it for some time?
Assuming it's been in your rig working fine until now, I'd take the following steps.

First, I'd uninstall and re-install the video drivers. If that doesn't do it, re-seat the card in the AGP slot. If still no go, I'd stop wasting time troublshooting, and RMA the card if it's still under warrantly, or simply buy a new toy to replace it.

I hope this is the driver you are trying to install,


as there is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that card (there isn't a Vista driver either). It may take using compatibility mode,

Which is the power supply best match with the AMD Radeon HD 7770 video card for my new XPS 8500 desktop computer ? The original graphics card was the nvidia GeForce GT 640, but then Dell emailed me that the order has been changed due to that nvidia card no longer available for a Windows 7 XPS 8500 PC. So now they changed my graphics card to that AMD 7770 which shows a 500 watt power supply minimum is required, but the 8500 has a 460 watt in it. So I did email Dell Customer Support about this issue, but since I do not play any games or high graphics use applications, will the 460 watt work okay or not ? Or the other OEM type AMD Radeon card available from Dell for this computer is the HD 7570 with lower power supply requirements at only 400 watts ?

your monitor may not support the 100HZ refresh rate.. i would drop it down to 60-75 HZ..

I recently got a projector from a friend and im trying to setup dual screen.

First of all im a bit confused by the Graphics Card itself. I looked for pictures of the card which my computer recognizes as a nVidia GeForce 8500 GT and none have a HDMI port but mine does. So i opened the case and the card has ATI and Foxconn written on it but nothing with nVidia on it.

I have a HDMI to VGA cable which im trying to use to go to my monitor but when i plug it in while switched on i get nothing on the monitor but the projector still works and if i plug it in then boot I get no output on my monitor and just just a black screen and the mouse pointer on my monitor.

I have attached my log file from Hijackthis. I can't figure out why my computer screen flickers after loading Windows. I have run Adaware, Spybot and ErrorKiller and fixed all errors that they found. I've run all of these in safe mode and regular mode many times. The computer screen will flicker on and off constantly, more often when you try to open a program. Eventually the screen will go black and the screen goes to standby mode. The CPU is still running and the mouse still moves- just not visible on the screen. If you click the mouse a couple of times, it eventually beeps that you did something invalid. You cannot bring the screen back up without having to manually shut down the computer and reboot.

You are having a problem with the LCD screen's Flourescent backlight. If the screen is still under warranty send it in for repairs.

If you want to do a little home research....see if a tap on the edges brings it back on. That would indicate a loose connection of some type.

I could book a Pick Up and Return but there is a 60 pounds fee just for the trip if they get to the conclusion that the damage is caused by me. I am afraid they are going to say this because it's got a "hole" on the back of the display. I know it's not relevant but obviously I cannot prove it.

Reboot in safe mode without networking - Tap "F8" while booting, and select that option.

START / RUN, then type TEMP, and press ok.
highlight and deleted all files. ignore files that will not delete. Close that window, then empty recycle bin.
Repeat above, replacing TEMP, with PREFETCH.

Reboot your PC again with safe mode as before. Then wait for the system tray [those little icons next to the clock] to finish loading. Note that some will not load in safe mode. Make sure your HDD light is ether not flashing, or you can not hear the HDD working at something.
Run a full anti-virus to be sure, then if all is considered clean, uninstall MSN, defrag your drive, boot your PC normally and re-install.

If during any of this time the screen still flickers. Please consider the age of your Graphics card, and consider upgrading or replacing it.
If the boot screen is flickering now, when before it wasn't, It seems like the fan on your graphics card may have failed and you are encountering signs of physical heat trauma to the GPU.

Who makes and maufactures your current Graphics card? or is it built-into your Motherboard?
If your graphics card is built-in to the Motherboard, I would suggest getting a new card that can fit in to the PCI / PCI-e or AGP slot on your motherboard.

A:Screen flickers as if a snapshot has been taken

Hi dhammaguest,

Before you start to get too overly concerned, perhaps the 'refresh rate' of your monitor is not set correctly.

To set the monitor properly, we need to know the Make; Model and type (whether it is a CRT "large type" or a LCD "flat screen" type).

Please post back with this information so that we can better advise you.

Kind Regards,

Ok,i've got a Dell M991 monitor. Whenever i run Call of duty 4 it flickers like a mutha... In the setup screen and the first minute or so ingame. I suspect it has to be a graphic conflict as the screen is old and my Graphic card is a Gainward ATI radeon HD 4850. I've had conflicts with other games as well. My daughter just bought The Sims 3 and after a while ingame or in the setup screen the frames freezes up the screen,and i have to restart the computer manually. I've tested the ram chips and they check out ok. Like i said...could it be a conflict between the Graphic card and the monitor?

You may have to lower the refresh rates from the video card to the monitor

I bought this computer an year ago in Septermber 2014, my device is out of warranty. Since past one month (a month after installing windows 10), my computer went all crazy. First, the fan starter brrrring, a constant noise and I have no idea how to deal with, its not the dust I checked that. And since a week and a half my screen started flickering on battery. At first if battery dropped below 25% the screen flickers and recently the batter percentage got bigger and bigger. Now, screen flickers at 90% battery. If I use chrome to watch youtube, the screen flickers even faster, I loosed up a lot of places online. No result. Please help!

Whenever I start to play Warcraft III/Frozen Throne, it'll go for about 5 minutes in game with no problems, but then the screen will begin to flicker, not on and off but sort of side to side and distort the picture for a split second. It usually starts off gradually then gets worse and becomes unplayable. It happens in that PKR game as well ( but not on games like World of Warcraft and Counter Strike/Counter Strike Source. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago I got a yellow triangle saying something about my resolution problems. I changed the resolution, then i got a stop error:

I tried starting in safe mode, I did tried to change the resolutions, but it did not work. I tried updating the drivers by using a usb to download drivers from internet because internet in safe mode doesnt work. Finally tried updating drivers on desktop when it would boot, part way through installation, screen flickered, sleep mode, then computer restarted. Tried many things, not sure what to do. Even in repair computer screen flickers. Not sure what to do.

A:Screen flickers and system restarts

stop error 0x00000116 is a graphics card error. See this for possible solutions:

Couple weeks ago, the lcd screen on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite M40X) started flickering, put usually a tap on the screen would stop it... but now the flickering won't stop, and sometimes the screen freezes in a flickering position and so all in all, it's useless right now...

Is there any way to fix this problem??? I really don't have any money to spend,
i have taken apart my laptop before so i think i can take apart the lcd if there is any way to replace it...

Thanks for the help!

The laptop screen flickers after it has been on for about a minute. If I move the screen slider half way down and back it, it works OK but if I move it to the bottom, the screen goes virtually blank ( I can just about make out an impression) and I have to reboot to get the picture back.

Hello. I have a toshiba satellite P50-B-10Z laptop with a strange problem.

Whenever I turn on the computer gives the feeling that the screen is constantly being refreshed because whenever I click to open the start menu it opens and closes immediately so does modal dialog windows.

This problem is not unique to Windows because when I enter the UEFI the behavior is the same as you can see in the video below (always appears the window to save the changes without me clicking on anything).

This behavior disappears when I click on the F5 key but happen again after some time without me having done anything. I've reinstalled Windows and all drivers but the problem continues.

I wonder if you have any solution to the problem and what to do.

Thank you

My wifes Dell Inspiron 4150 (Win XP Home, 1.7Ghz, 256 Megs Ram) has a problem with the screen. It flickers, or dims & then comes back to full brightness. I have tried to isolate when it does this ( on too long, too much cpu usage, ect.), but it doesnt seem to matter. I have noticed it seems to stop or improve when I unplug the power. Also, on a different note, I get error messages saying I should switch to another power supply or lose data (as if its running on Battery only when in fact its plugged in). I was wondering if a complete HD wipe & OS re-install would help. Anyone got any ideas? I searched the forum for other instances of this problem & didnt see anything. If this has been covered before, forgive me. Thanks for your time.

A:just got new mobo but the screen flickers/flashes....

I'd start with disabling CrossFireX and see if this solves the problem, I don't think it will though. Once you establish it has/has not resolved then post your results here. There is no reason whatsoever to reformat your hard drive so don't do this, it is more than likely a tweak in your BIOS or perhaps a little work with your ATi drivers but this issue is fixable.

Been running Windows 7 32-bit for a while now with no problems. Yesterday though i've found that whenever I boot up the OS, the desktop screen flickers with little purple and green dots along the program bar at the bottom of the screen and on any icons. The main wallpaper does not.

Everything freezes, I have no control either with the mouse or keyboard. Happens every time i try to reboot.

Booted once in safe mode, worked ok, found these error codes:

- bad video driver that needs to be reinstalled with the use of the driver sweeper

- wrong memory settings in the bios

If you see video artifacts this likely means the card has bit the dust.
