    a weak/failing PSU can cause restarts and crashes, but it CANNOT cause consistent artifacting like those stripes.


    I would replace the PSU no matter what, but its very likely one of the parts i listed will need replacing as well.


    You're asking for advice from the experts, then ignoring the advice.

    as per u mentioned about using different monitor
    i dont have any extra
    and i dont always run my pc on gpu
    somtimes i got work to do n i cant afford restarts
    so switch it to default display i.e onboard graphic
    and at that time i dont see any lines
    my monitor works perfectly

    Is the onboard GPU connected to a different port at the back of the monitor or do you pull out the cable form the dedicated GPU and attach it to the onboard GPU out?

    i hope you also remove it from the motherboard, or we might have found the source of why its damaged

    Just to add, despite being in the PCI-E slot, it is still getting power, just nowhere near enough which could potentially damage the card.

    hey guys
    i just found out the solution that
    it was the old drivers which was causing the lines to appear
    i removed my old intel drivers n ati both
    then again installed ati drivers
    and the lines are gone

    ok so you cleaned out the drivers and installed the motherboard drivers from intel then the Video card drivers from AMD?

    ya reinstalling an OS is the last effort

    Bear In mind there are DX updates sometimes
