ISO 13402-6, or ISO 13406-2? Presumeably they are two different things?

Edit: Just been to the ISO website, looks like 13402-6 doesn't exist, but I get this result for 13406-2 :http://www.iso.org/iso/en/CatalogueD...ICS2=180&ICS3=

Didn't fancy shelling out to find out what it was all about though!

Andy,

Buy one but try and buy it from somewhere you can take it back. staples used to be very good at this. PC World, Dixons and Comet are crap for this. Its what I'd do.

As you say you can buy a half decent graphics card for £40. Mine is for gaming and cost quite a lot. Thats why I didn't buy a new one to check it out. Also the symptoms were the same as a total power loss. Not something I would normally associate with a graphics card.

Since my last post have just refitted my repaired card and all seems to be working well. Lets hope it keeps going over the weekend.

Matt,

Tried it when it first came out but I play CS Source (Good Training) most of the time (Nickname is Capn Stabin LOL), Battlefield 2 and COD 2. Sad I know but gives me something to do on those long winter nights when the seas are empty.

There's a new version of AA coming out today-it's MUCH improved from the early versions now. It's pretty much all I play now-it's improved so much.

My nick is a bit obvious lol

Is it still a free download. If so I'll give it a try.

Give it a couple of days-I think the new version is 2.7 but I haven't downloaded it yet as it's got so many people queueing for it.

Yeah - I didn't make that very clear. ISO 13406-2 is the one that covers dead pixels and the like. However, it seems that manufacturers of LCD's at the cheaper end don't seem to be publicising compliance with ISO 13406-2. - Instead they list 13402-6 which I’ve never heard of - and it looks like it doesn't exist.

I've returned two LCD's in the past for dead pixels, so it quite nice to know where you stand with the manufacturer.
