    My GPU keeps showing liter on the screen (like an old badly coded dos/windows 3.11 program).

    Do you guys have any idea of what's happening?

    I think it might be heat damage, it was like, 50ºC where I live and the GPU fan was somewhat broken.
    It's a ATI Radeon HD 4800 on a Windows 8 box.

    re install graphics driver ...if that fails
    sounds like the video card has gone bad. Its displaying random information on the screen.
    also check your temps http://www.cpuid.com/

    my GTX 770'oc runs at 26 Celsius whats yours

    Reinstaling the graphics card didn't helped.

    Mine usually runs at around 50ºC - 65°C while idling and peaking at 85ºC while gaming. (those are normal temperatures for brazil)

    thats hot....im 26c idle -- maybe 40 gaming
    sounds like heat issue and a bad 1 85c gaming is to hot

    prob need a new card - better case , better air flow
    with some nice fans to draw heat out

    Yeah I'll end up buying a new one after summer.

    About air flow, I literally have a dedicated table fan blowing all the air out of the case.

    85ºC is not THAT hot, it's hot, but not too much, since we have no AC here my room get's easily up to 50ºC during the day.

    u dont use a table fan to keep a pc cool -- oh dear -- no no no
    85c constant heat is to much with poor air flow you ask for advice we give it then you dismiss it
    im gaming right now my GPU is 26c --- yours is 85 --- see a difference ???
    your card is hitting those temp due to poor air flow causing over heat
    i bet your cpu is frying bacon

    I'm not dismissing you advice mate, but keep in mind that it is imposible to get the card under 40ºC because that's room temperature.

    Sorry if I sound a bit rude, my english is not that good.

    There is a problem with your RAM.. Open your PC and uninstall the RAM..
    Remove the dust from RAM slots blower and Clean the dust from RAM with eraser.
    hope it'll work

    Tried that yesterday (even swapped the sticks from another computer), and the same thing happened, so I think it's a GPU-only problem.

    guys come on
    my 4 cores run at 48c full load -- my gpu at 26-28 full load
    this guy is hitting 65 idle 85 full load
    its a heat issue ......
    u wont keep a pc cool with a table fan

    u need a case that supports 1 front fan / intake
    side fan / intake -- a rear fan exaust.
    and for best results 2 top fans for exaust
    he wont be 85c then... AIR FLOW

    or get 3 friends to keep blowing in it with your table fan

    my room temp is 21c
    saying room temp doesnt allow you to get pc temp down isnt quite right.
    yes the air going it comes from the room but iff that where true

    why is my room 21c --- giving a pc temp of 48c full load on my 4 cores
    and 26-28c on my graphics card.......your argument doesn't stack up
    if the heat theory was right imagine the heat this would generate
    and it doesnt go over gpu 28 --- cpu 47/48

    Will get a new case tomorrow, but my GPU must be dead already.
