WEll, I was browsing the internet then all of a sudden I start seeing artifacts on my screen. I don't think it is a driver issue because I all see it at BIOS set up too. Is my MSI Geforce2 PRO dying???

I currently using my 5years old Diamond S3 PCI graphics card.

I'd suggest trying it out in a different system, and to try installing a different set of drivers, to try to narrow it down.

Had you recently installed any new hardware or drivers to any part of your system right before you noticed this happening?

Might been the monitor, or the cable. I was having some video issue recently. Changed cards same thing. Bought a new video cable. BAM!! Problem when away. hmmmm.....

Thanks for all the reply. The card is toast. I'm trying to get a RMA thru newegg. I hope to get it, I think I bought it almost two years ago.
