URGENT: GeForce 6600GT PCI-E Display Problem
Posted on 2006-03-20
I have a customer who I have just built a machine for. He seems to be the "Kiss of Death" when it comes to putting a computer anywhere near him!
This is the setup:
Thermaltake Soprano 450w
LCD Monitor LG L1915S-SN
AMD Athlon64 3700+ Skt939
1Gb VDATA PC400
2 x 200Gb 7200rpm 8Mb SATA
1 x 40Gb Maxtor (Old) Removeable Backup Drive
Iomega Zip Drive
1.44" Floppy Drive
DVD-RW (Samsung I think - trying to remember)
EPoX 9NPA+ Ultra NF4 Athlon64 Skt939
256Mb GeForce 6600GT PCI-E
Now, things are never easy at this place, and I spent most of today trying to work out how the photocopier was configured so that they could print to it. Now it seems as though when you turn the computer on, these weird pixellation type of lines take over the screen. It's like lines that are smudged.
I'm not sure what the issue is. I have upgraded the drivers for the MB and Display Adaptor, it's a fresh install of XP, and the problem happens in POST and whilst displaying the splash screen via the BIOS. I thought it could be a lack of power, seeing as there is a lot of crap in it.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated on this one!
