    I've got a really anoying problem.. my screen displays larges white stripes.. it's kinda hard to describe so i took some pics:




    it happened 2 times before but this time i cannot fix it..

    I tried to uninstall&reinstall the lastest driver of my x1900gt and i also tested on the 2 differents LCD but i still have those white stripes..
    then my comp crashes or display a blue screen "ati2dvag error"

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

    Yes, it's dying. Eventually you won't be able to boot up your pc unless you have integrated video.

    It isn't necessarily dead.

    I've seen problems like that with LCD displays, but the problems go away when you connect a CRT display. I suspect that the problem mat lie in the monitor definition (misleadingly called monitor drivers), not the graphics card drivers. I seem to recall that it was something to do with the relationship between refresh rates and resolution.

    Try lowering the resolution to see if things improve. Once you can see what you are doing, make sure you've got the correct "drivers" for the monitor. Assuming they are wrong and you can replace them with the correct ones, you should then be able to increase the resolution.

    Of course, if lowering the resolution doesn't improve things then it may well be a dying graphics card as others have suggested.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Well, i tried on CRT but i still have the same problem.
    I don't understand, i bought it 5 months ago .. i never O/C my GPU and it was very well cooled by a 120mm fan.
    I guess it was my first and last ATI GPU..
    Anyway thanks you guys for the fast answers

    I hope it's still under warranty.

    My 6600GT lasted just under a year.....nothing that's made in china is built to last.
