you wont believe this is or was my 3rd rma 8600gt!!!!!!!!!
before it i was using it with diff. cpu-mobo combo (5200+ and m2ne)

i forgot to mention that after this screen when the system restarts this garbled scrren is present right from bios screen, so i guess that rules out driver/sw problems

can it be releated to mobo as the card for running just fine on by m2ne, used to run cod mw2,grid etc nicely

ok so it isn't a ram problem. so next most likely option is GPU. but in my case (old pc opened 2 weeks ago, faced same problem but no GPU) this step solved the problem.

Treatment in progress...
Well,u might remove the ram and gpu from their rrespecrive slots,give a slots a bit of a hard blow of air and put things back.
Worked for me.
Otherwise,it has features of a possible gpu problem.

Also,have u lukd at the proccy temps and hdd smart?

You got 3 RMAs from rashi :shock:.

Whats RMA?


Try changing your cable that connects ur monitor and cpu....that could be the problem. If it doesn't help then try starting the pc in safe mode...if the problem doesn't arise then its your GPU problem probably.

@abhidev
it was a gpu problem. for rma take a look at this

@sam
well i had another rma (4th one)
dont be so angry at rashi:lol:, atleast my citys rashi franchisee is nice:))

i asked them for a credit voucher but since they had a new 8600 in store they said they would give the next time if i have the problem again
guess they have a bumper stock of xfx 8600gt, everytime i go with a problem they handover a new 8600:roll:

are you sure the card you received is new? cause chances are those are faulty cards, cleaned up & TIMed. and are given to anyone with a faulty Electric Stove (pet name for XFX 8600GT). if so, than they are a pack of really educated cheaters.

I am the night...I am...
Even rashi guys in my city are good. My 5750 also went kaput after 2 weeks of purchase. The problem was due to my faulty ups and voltage spikes due to improper earthing.

They replaced my card within 6 working days and gave me a new 5750. I am talking about rashi peripherals bhubneshwar and i guess they are lot better than their kolkata counterpart.

^^ your card was new & a bit costly (above 7k) so they replaced. also its from Asus. had you taken a faulty XFX 8600GT or 8500GT you may have got same kind of reaction as Topgear.
