  • Videocard trouble

    Hi everybody!
    I probably have a trouble with my videocard (I've got GeForce MX-440). It shows black stripes from time to time, especially when I try to play games ("Heroes" are a complete disaster!). Could anybody give me advice?

      Check the card is properly seated and the fan is running.
      Also check the VGA cable is correctly plugged in.

      Since it is an old card, probably being pushed to the limit, try turning down the resolution / colour depth / refresh rate and seeing if that makes a difference.

      As Wullie said, check for driver updates.

      Look seriously at a new GC. My MX440 with 64Mb cost more than a new GeForce 6200 with 256 Mb!
