    does your pc also have onboard video to see if still has problem or not?

    Looks like somebody punched the lower right corner of your screen. Ive never seen a GFX card die like that. Ive seen them die one pixel at a time. ive seen them die Etch a sketch style, but never like that.

    if all else fail............

    put the card (without the cooler and other plastic bits) into an electric oven middle shelf at 385 f degrees for about 8 minutes
    keep the metal away from the card

    if the problem is heat then this should reset the solder

    this has worked on three out of eight that we've tried :) all good cards :)
