Probably a hardware issue.

If you can strip the machine down to a bare minimum of extra cards. Just have the Motherboard and a video card. See if it will continue then.

If it's still hosed try a different video card. If that fails get a new MB.

Best of luck

where in the name of common sense did you ever get the idea that the trunk of your car is a good place to store your PC?

edit: sorry about the double-post, must have brushed that darn touchpad while correcting some terminiology.

Suggestion

Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.

just jump right on top of you when you're not looking.

Seriously though, a company called Traditional Medicinals makes some helpful herb teas. We use them a lot around here. Breathe Easy is a good one. We have other favs, but that one is kinda nice when it's tough to breathe. We get them at most local health food stores, Whole Foods, Wild Oats.
