Default Video Card 8800GT

Hey everyone,

I have a 8800GT card that I bought on 5/1/08 and I had it working ever since. The other day (2 days ago) I was playing WoW and I noticed when I was playing it lagged up and the colors were all distorted. So I turned off my computer and saw my windows xp loading screen have blue lines across. I didn't know what that was I thought maybe it was just being weird for a second. I tried to get on WoW again and it told me it couldn't find a display driver. So I troubleshooted my card and I got this "Device 10 Error". Is their any fixes to this or should I buy a new card? Everything on my monitor is getting very fuzzy though.

I had the same problem with mine. Try reinstalling the graphics drivers. That worked for me for a day or so, mine ended up totally dying (artifacts 100% of the time, then wouldn't boot into Windows). I RMA'ed it and they sent me a 9800GT (BFG). Not sure how long your warranty is though.
