My graphics card seems to die - it produces a lot of horizontal lines of garbage so that it's actually difficult to see what's going on on the screen.
I'm pretty sure it's the graphics card being broken because:
- the mouse cursor is not affected by the graphics error (so it can't be a problem with the screen)
- ever since this is happening, the bios bootscreen shows some (different) errors too
- a 2nd Windows 7 installation on my computer shows exactly the same graphics errors.
The thing is, if I boot in safe mode, everything is fine (only a few areas of particular colors show something that looks a bit like dithering, but that doesn't disturb much).
I assume that's because in safe mode windows 7 renders in software mode or doesn't make use of some hardware shaders or whatever..
I'd like to know what I can do so that I can run my graphics card in normal mode the same way as it is run when booting into safe-mode?
