    Hey Guys,

    Well this just happened recently. Randomly (usually when I'm viewing something with many colors, like Google Earth or a Picture Thread on a forum) my computer does this :

    As you can see, it can get quite annoying. Usually, it fixes by simple rebooting my system. At first I thought it might be a heat issue due to excess dust, so I get myself a compressed air can and did a nice clean up with my system.

    Unfortunately, same problem (less frequently though).

    Anywho, anybody got an idea what it may be? Will I have to RMA?

    The Graphic card is a Radeon 9800 PRO Atlantis runnning with a Pentium 4 3.0ghz and a 1gb of ram. Motherboard is an Asus P4P800 Deluxe (if that matters)

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Dont want to scare you but my mates 6800 ultra was doing something like that a month or so ago and now its completly dead, and he still isnt sure whats wrong with it. Unlikely but Is it still in warranty?

    nice advertising for sapphire by the way :p
