I just wanna start out by saying I love the new Zune HD but after what happened when I tried using the new

software kinda ruined it for me. First off, there are reports of the software having graphical issues and are

fixed by disabling graphic acceleration. Even afer doing that though, it fried my video card. Zune tech support

was no help and said it had to do with XP, called Microsoft, they said to call Zune. Now I'm out $500 because

the only place to get a "new" card is eBay, I'm just gonna go with the best my computer can handle, Nvidia

7950 gtx. If you get a zune HD, make sure you have an old computer or get one off craigslist for like $10,

that way when it gets fried, you're only out $10 at most.

I suspect there is something else going on, I can't even imagine a way the Zune software could damage your video card. While I generally avoid absolutes, I am tempted to actually say that it's impossible.  Either way, I have the Zune software installed on my computer and my video card still works fine.

I agree. I don't think the Zune software is responsible for your video card failure.

The only I can think of it happening was the video card somehow overheated to the point of melting itself (why it decided to while running Zune and not in Bioshock, I'll never know). however improbable, not entirely impossible. What happened is while it was running, the interface started to grey out and become unresponsive. I restarted the computer and tried running it again with the same results, only this time, the rest of the computer had graphic issues. restarted again with artifacting in bios and in os. Everytime I try to install a graphics driver, the computer will only boot in safe mode.

If only it was a 32GB, then I wouldn't have had to ask my cousin in California very nicely to get one and ship it up here.

 Everytime I read that Canadians need to answer a question I chuckle, that's so unusual lol.
