Would a graphics card that's on it's way out stop pc from booting up?
I run Xp on an oldish machine and noticed over a few weeks that the card maybe failing (my diagnosis). Now I have lines on screen and pc will only boot up in safe mode. When booting up it never gets past the xp loading screen then boots up again. After about 3 minutes it automatically go to options for booting in safe mode without me pressing F8.
In safe mode you can just make out icons etc but gets worse when you move the mouse
Any help would be great before I get a second hand one off ebay.
