Angry PNY 9800GT issues, overclocked???

Hello,

My PNY 9800GT (which im assuming is the problem) is glitching out and causing freeze and reboot and windows welcome screen and occasionally a Blue screen appears, with an automatic reboot. When I start Windows normally, it will get to the welcome screen or on occasion further, but all the colors are whacked out with lines (pixelated) streaking across the screen.

My computer was working perfectly fine today when this happened. I started TF2 the first program I ran today and attempted to enter a server when this happened.

I don't know whether its the graphics card overheating or what. I dusted out the GFX card and the computer and reinstalled new driver, but no luck. I then uninstalled the driver/gfx and it works fine, then reinstalled the GFX again and same problem. Safe mode works perfectly though, probably as it doesn't use the GFX card.

PNY Nvidia 9800GT
Gateway LX6200

Bios Voltage:
+1.1v : 1.104
+3.3v : 3.308
+5.00v: 5.056
+12v : 11.968
5USB : 5.059
VBAT : 3.344

Heres a picture of what I'm talking about. Sometimes it will be different colors.

Uninstall the drivers, and run Driver Sweeper. Reinstall drivers.

No luck. It actually went to desktop but everything was all liney still and messed up and it quickly went to BSOD and shutdown.

Did you try a different monitor or port?

I haven't tried another port, but I did a monitor but the same result. So it's definitely not the monitor.

Funny thing is that I'm running it in safe mode just fine through the graphics card. When I disable my Display Adapter and uninstall drivers it will run through it in normal mode too.

Must be bad drivers. Try using a lower version than the most current.

I believe it could be the automatic installation of the drivers by Windows. Because, whenever I delete the drivers and reboot it will find the drivers for itself and Im pretty sure its giving it faulty drivers. I'll see what I can do.

No, I bet the cards dead. The default drivers for windows adds just whats needed to get a pic, nothing to actually task it.

Try testing the gpu memory with this : https://simtk.org/home/memtest/ Its command line btw.

You can load the nvidia d/l'd drivers in safe mode, then boot to regular mode.
