cheers m8 i think that answers saved me a lot of fooloing around

try alternative drivers for it mate, know it sounds silly but some of the drivers seem to get it running in 16 colours, not 32 and you don't notice it....worth a shot mate, nothing to lose :p

More useful advice?

Did you update / change anything before this happened?

I would try a different monitor if you can?
Check all of the monitor connections if you've not done so already?
Try removing the card and re-inserting it in the motherboard, check the fan is clean and working whilst you are in there,
Download the latest driver, unzip to a new folder, removing the card completely from Device Manager then restart and install from the clean new driver.

If this does not work then try to borrow another card to test your PC, monitor or buy a new one.
Is the old card more than 1yr old as it still might be under warranty?

Hope this helps,
Keith.
