Computer help? Oct. 31st, 2011 @ 04:23 PM Reply

I get this sometimes when I boot up into Windows 7. It's annoying and ugly. I'm wondering if its related to my graphics card, motherboard, processor or cooler that I'm using. This never has happened when I boot up into Hackintosh on my computer.

If there's a problem with my graphics card, processor or something else. I will contact the company I bought the product from since they probably fixed whatever was wrong with it. My graphics card was one of the newer models of the Gigabyte Nvidia gtx 470 1280mb series. I hope it didn't have flaws like this in it. But I don't get any crashes while playing games, so could it really be a flaw in my graphics card?

CPU: Amd Phenom II x 965 3.4ghz
Ram: 4 gigs ddr3 ram
Motherboard: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
Graphics card: Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 470 1280MB card
OS's on computer: Windows 7 64 bit Home copy(legit copy, so that shouldn't be the problem) and Hackintosh Snow Leopard 10.6.6.
Cooler: H50

I have a Mac, a hackintosh is basically the same thing just running on a computer instead of a system built for a Mac. Macs stink tho because they don't have as many good software and not enough games on it compared to Windows.

That's just about the worst advice anyone could ever give.

"Pay three times as much for an OS with barely any unique features, terrible support for third-party software, and overall at most half of what any other computer can do." YEP, PROBLEM SOLVED.

On the topic, it looks to be either a video card or cooling (or video card cooling) issue. Ventilate your PC more, if you possess the skills apply some fresh thermal compound, maybe install better fans if the problem insists.

(After rereading the initial post, your cooling seems fine. It's either your monitor or your video card('s cooling).)

I could be comical and say its the sign of the devil or the apocolyps ... but in reality its just your graphics card frying it self to a eventual death, if its running and it pops up in it's test phase.. or its your motherboard with a virus that is telling your card to display this shape on start up...
What ever it is I'd use it to get a new computer

I would say call Nvidia, support's way cheaper then a new mac, then make sure you don't tell them about hackintosh, or let them come to your house, because when they find out, they will not help fix your computer, so make sure they tell you exactly what to do to fix the problem.
