Screen Freeze + Color Distortion

1532 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Xconner1337X
I have a problem.....a while back i had an old NVIDIA geforce 8800 GT (almost 5 years old) and it burned out finally, so i replaced it with an Nvidia geforce 9400 GT and ever since i did, my computer will freeze and i cant move anything or ctrl-+alt+del out or anything i can only hard restart. when the screen freezes the pixels on the screen seem to just move out of place and the colors separate from each other which leads me to think its a graphics card issue. It usually happened when i was playing games but now it doesn't seem to even matter if i am or not because it usually will just crash even if i'm not doing anything. If anyone has any solutions or at this point just some insight or some closure or ANYTHING!

System Specs:
CPU:AMD anthlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.4GHz
Motherboard:ALiveNF7G-FullHD R3.0
RAM:3.5g DDR2
GFX:NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT (1905 MB mem.)
PSU:Raidmax ATX12V 500W
Cooling:2 120mm fans and 1 80mm fan

Post the temp and voltage readings from the BIOS.

Raidmax PSU may have contributed to the failed 8800GT.
