[Resolved] Video Artifacts
Ok, now it looks like I ave a true problem with my system.
Tonight the screen started displaying misc character at random locations (including in the grub bootloader screen), when I boot into CLI mode I get blue vertical bars around the screen on top of the terminale due, Additionall when I attempt ot go into a GUI my monitor reports no video input.
I have already connected my monitor to another comp and confirmed that is not the issue.
I beleive that my vid card went and it is no longer able to do accelerated video, please give you input if you think the problem could be caused by something else.
