On startup green squares


New Member
Whenever I boot my PC a bunch of green squares pop up for the whole startup process then after the windows logo a screen shows with lines that look like the matrix and after a couple of seconds a blue screen appears and just starts the process all over again. Might be an error within my video card or motherboard but i'm just not sure what is causing the problem

Any information is needed and thanks for the help.

The system is sending data that your screen or v-card cann't render
common causes in order;
1. the screen resolution size is too big for the monitor,
2. the g-driver is corrupt or just wrong for xp,
3. the monitor plug is damaged or not in all the way,
4. the g-card is not in all the way or covered in dust, dead ants etc,
5. one or more parts have had a good life but have now died of old age... R.I.P

I thought it was the GPU Overflow, or problems with the GPU.

Send your GPU and replace it with the newer that doesn't have this problem.

Install the GPU Correctly, otherwise it beeped for a while.
