Dead graphics card. Checkerboard pattern?
So my graphics card seems to be dead. The screen works on and off, but when it does not work it shows a progressively changing checkerboard pattern. This occurs on the Laptop display, with an external monitor, through S-Video, and with "screen sharing".
What are my options?
Replace the Mother board?
Part it out and chuck the Mother Board?
Replace the graphics card? (not sure I can do that)
Cast a voodoo spell that fixes everything?
You ideas would be very much appreciated!
Is this a good question?
