Hello mates, After solving my "VPU Recover error" http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=373867 back in Jan 22, 2013, i have recently encountered another problem which i presume is related to my graphics card. While booting Windows 7 red dots appear all over my screen making impossible to access desktop, windows freezes at the login screen switching from red dots to white lines and white dots, and always the same scheme. In order to access my desktop i have to start in safe-mode, restart, and after that the problem disappears for some time. It isn't a persistent problem it appears randomly, i'd say 1-2 times a week (it was 5-10 times a week but after i refreshed the thermal paste on the GPU it had some effect). The same problem appears randomly on desktop, sometimes while browsing the internet or working in photoshop. Strange fact: i never experienced this while playing. Analyzing the problem i concluded to the fact that my graphics card is totally fried, or almost. As i stated above i refreshed the thermal paste on it thinking it might help, it did, but not much, the problem still exists. And if there may be questions in this direction, my GPU is clean as a whistle. Another thought was of faulty RAM, but nothing came out while testing with Memtest86+ V4.20, my RAM has passed the tests... When i did the tests i didn't remove RAM cards to test each one of them, i left all of them in their slots, i presume the test went overall and if a RAM card would have been damaged i would have received an error. Here is my build: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit Processor: Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz Motherboard: Intel X58 Platinum RAM: 3 GB Kingston Graphic Card: ATI Radeon HD 4870X2 with the latest update PSU: EPSILON 80PLUS 700 - Total power 700W Any help will be greatly appreciated! P.S.: I noticed this issue after making an update of W7, still i don't think it's a software issue, but i'll give it a try reinstalling my Windows.
