    Angry Corrupted Pixles

    I bought a GPU of trademe for my bro. and it has a few corrupted pixels. Trying to get a refund as it was not reported in the auction http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=476256292 the PC running it has a insufficient PSU and I am trying to get a new one for to run better cards. Anyway, what causes these pixels to corrupt??

    Need more details, screenshots would be nice.

    Sounds more like a duff LCD screen than the video card (had a Viewsonic monitor that had bright pixel problems from time to time). Had to dump my old 7600GS card recently when it caused a corrupted video display with faint blue lines all over the place.

    Probably has something to do with the insufficient power supply.

    Maybe, the screen is not faulty because it worked well with the former card which was taken out the same day I put in the 'new' card.
    Could be the PSU. The GPU is 5 years old btw. The corrupted pixels flicker on the screen they are blue and white.

    Do you have a spare monitor or tv you could test it with?

    Nup. Don't have to any way, could just test the monitor on a different PC, have plenty of those.

    Trying to get a refund on a $26 card and its reported in the auction as faulty
    Only one D-Dvi link works of the two, S-video out works perfectly.
    I'd say you may be tough out of luck, esp if its known and described to have a fault.

    Warning bells should have rung when its listed as having that fault. Wouldn't be at all surprised a fault in the card is causing the problem.

    Dont buy computer components that are listed as faulty because when you get them they tend to not work very well. A friend bought one and just abouy every single capacitor on te board had blown.
