comment Test if a port on a remote system is reachable (without telnet)
Perfect! This outputs a clear connection succeeded/failed message with just the one line. Note that multiple ranges don't appear to work for my nc version; only the first range is tested.

I'm going to be returning the card to either Nvidia or my retailer. After ages of testing, I've concluded the card is faulty through using a graphics test program that failed almost immediately.

I've submitted a help request to them before I asked here. Still waiting to hear back.

Tested the card in the same model machine but Windows 7 x64. Dxdiag reports that DirectDraw is entirely unavailable. Seems the issue is either this computer model, this card being faulty, or nvidia's driver.
