Today when i removed my AGP card to clean it's fan and tried to start my PC with using integrated card, before PC could boot the picture froze and became distorted. After that I hit the restart button and then it booted normaly. Could it be that it's due to the fact that I didn't change BIOS settings to allow my integrated card to be used or is it that my integrated card is dying?

This is the picture of what showed up on my screen:

Did you supply a driver and remove the unused display drivers? – Ramhound Sep 30 '13 at 17:44
Are you sure you don't just have a really cool boot screen? :P – Moses Sep 30 '13 at 17:46
No I didn't remove the unused display drivers, nor did I install the ones for the integrated card. Could that be an issue? – Stevan Jovanovic Sep 30 '13 at 17:48
Hahaha, good one Moses :D – Stevan Jovanovic Sep 30 '13 at 17:49
@Moses - Understood hence my updated response. – Ramhound Sep 30 '13 at 18:57
