Going back to my last post, I'm trying to figure out if my video card is doing it or my monitor.There are strange dots and colors on my display.Only-when I use my geforce2mx200's accellerator.For example,when I start a game that requires my adaptor.Up till that point everything else is fine.Help!!!!!!!!!Aopen ak-73 with kt-133 chipset and onboard sound.Duron 900 with 128mb ram.20g ata 100 maxtor 7200 rpm.

False colored pixel >can< be caused by too much heat or by overclocking.

Do you overclock your card?

If yes: Stop doing it.
If no : Check if the fan on the heatsink is still doing its job.

If that all dosnt work you may try to >underclock< your card (read running it at an lower clockspeed than the default) to see if that helps.
