i bought it awhile ago actually christmas of 04 then when i install it, it doesnt work, well it does but it has these weird blocks thats make lines that across the screen screen shot
this is the one from when it first happen. so i imediatly took it out and figured static? then cleaned it and put in anti static bag, grounded myself and put back in motherboard, did same thing, i gave up after several atemps and reinstalling of the drivers and updates. about a month ago i put it in again to see if it worked. all and behold it did. then just yesterday it did it again with the lines. why? i oculdnt return it because when i bought it the card didnt have a serial number or pin number on it. so i couldnt ask ati about the problem, you cant ask them anything without a p/n or a s/n. so i came here to you again please help this dilema which has plagued me for so long. i bought it for alot of money (at least to me) and i dont have any money to buy a new card, well i shouldnt have to if it worked.
