Hi, I'm having an issue with an Asus V8460 Ultra. That's an Geforce4 Ti 4600 AGP.

It shows glitches on the Desktop under special circumstances. It's not the green/red artifacting.
Tested under win7(pro-32) and winxp(pro-32) the first glitch appears on Windows Start-screen in Form of an horizontal gray line about 2cm thick. Location of the line differs every time it appears and Duration is only a split second.
I can provoke the glitch by accessing the nvidia quick-panel or the driver settings. I tested the original Asus Driver and the oldest and newest nvidia Drivers i could find. The Glitch is far more prevalent on XP where it sometimes glitches the lower half of the screen (no gray bar in this case...more like a distortion).
I haven't noticed glitching under benchmarks , games or Bios so far. I tested dvi and vga and two different LDC-Monitors with same result.
The Card itself is looking good with stock cooler and no discolored traces from overclocking.

gpu dying ; ram faulty; driver issue?

So my question is if this sounds familiar to anyone and if someone has a solution.

Exactly, ram issue. I had same thing on a ET4000 w32p, discovered when I was scrolling down long bookmarks in firefox back in the days where PII or athlon ruled the roost, not bothered to hunt down one by one and replace, so I reaped all and put in all same ram from one junked computer.

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

The picture quality is pretty bad.
Took a video and screen-captured the stopped footage on PC. But the Giltch is to fast to get it otherwise (i have no direct capture capabilities).
Two pictures from the XP-footage and two from my unactivated win7 test system.
The transparency is not present in reality, i guess the video-software interpolates the frames.

Thanks for your input so far 👍

If you do a screen shot does it show up? Or just when you take a picture of the screen?

No, the screenshot has nothing to do with it.
I took a video with my phone while provoking the Glitch by clicking on the quick-panel nvidia driver icon and/or the geforce settings.
The screenshots are essential still-frames from this video.

I understand that the pictures above are stills from your video. I was asking if you took a screenshot from with in windows if the issue is captured. After seeing your pictures I've had 3 monitors over the years fail on me and the picture would look just like that.

I misunderstood your question.
I tried a direct screen-capture but seemingly could not get the timing right to catch it.
To eliminate the possibility of e screen failure i tested multiple (4) monitors (the 16:9 from the pictures and tree different 4:3) and got the same result.

I think pentiumspeed is right with the failing memory theory.

It's a shame...really nice card

@pentiumspeed
It looks like i can't reply to your message for some reason but thanks for the offer to repair the Card.
This Card is sadly not my own and i told the Owner of the possibility to repair but he was put off buy shipment to Canada and the hassle.
So It will remain just a collection piece as it is. But even with this defect i think he will take good care.
