    I have an Ati Radeon 7000 64 mb agp card and it's driving me nuts.

    Most of my 3d games play for a few minutes then my screen craps out, it gets
    lines and distortions all through it. It will stay like that until I reboot.
    Yep, the desktop stays that way too.
    I have an msi k7t turbo 2 board, bios updated.
    Amd 2400+, not overclocked,
    512mb sdram.
    Windows xp pro.

    I have updated the drivers,rolled them back, formated, cleaned the card,
    changed settings, it has a cooling fan pointed at it. nothing changed

    Any ideas ?

    Sounds like you have a thermal fault in your video card. Time to consider a
    replacement, perhaps?
