Your card might be dead. While I was trying to remove a ramsink I ripped off one of the ram chips on the video card. Well I pretty much knew it was dead, but I tried it out anyway. It gave a weird pixelation on the screen like you said urs did. Does your computer give an beeps for video card failure or anything?

I probably over heated. make sure you put them in right, check and make sure your heatsinks aren mis-aligned. And try agian. It also maybe a driver issue.

If that dosnt work try clearing CMOS. (remove the battery on ur MB for a min or so and put it back in)

Best of luck
