    So my questions r...

    1. Is the rest memmory burned?
    2. Is there a program which can test it?
    3. Is there a way to fix this?

    Any help is apreciated...

    That's usually a sign that ya've lost a memory pipeline and I'm afraid that it can't be fixed but whether it's the memory itself or the pipeline within the GPU I can't say. :shrug:

    JMHO - I would send it in for RMa if you can. Why mess with it?
    That is what I always do, and most of the time, they send me something better, and a T-shirt or something if I tell than how much of a fan I am of their products and stuff. They love to hear that stuff.

    After running some tests, and flashing the bios 2-3 times with deferent settings i got the card's memmory going on again...now theres 32mb ram back 2 my card....
    ...unfortunately my problems aint over.

    The problem i have now is that some strange artifacts apear on the screen.

    I disabled the 16mb of ram which were not working b4 and the card runs ok. So its definately the memmory...
