Question Is my grafic card broken again?

RADEON X550
RADEON X550 Secondary

I think this are the grafic cards , but i think im wrong , anyway I dont know how to look, and the problem is that I have a white line up in my display ( desktop) that is seen trought all the other programs.
Now I can take my computer to the quarantine, but the ppl in shop dont give it right away , but look " we can maybe help", but all they do is delete everything.
When I bought my computer I had a broken video card, so I just like 4 months ago got a new one, I dont want to change again.

Anyone know what to do?
I asked a IT man , who I know , and he doest know anything. Its rather annyong cuz I have many games that I cant play now. ( they freeze).

or should I change it and buy an ndivia deforce something card??
But they shouldnt really I have a normal computer.
Gash.

RADEON X550 is a cheap budget card. BUT it should work correctly and without white lines.

The secondary is there, because you may connect two monitors to it. If you don't use two monitors, you can disable the secondary.: Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device manager > Display Adapters > right-click on the secondary, select "turn off' (transl?).

Please post your dxdiag report: click on following link Diagnose.exe , select to RUN it then post the complete result into your next reply.

I uninstalled 3 games yesterday, thought it help ( before I wrote this thread). But if you dislike this video card, which one is the best then?

The funny thing is that the while line doest stay on the pic,if I make a pic with the print button. But like I said its a while line that is seen trought all my programs, and 2 games feeze.
I dont know how else to discride it if it doest let it self picture.

Like i have windows media player open, msn, an online game, later something else.

"and the problem is that I have a white line up in my display ( desktop) that is seen trought all the other programs."

Its like from 1 cm on the very top of my desktop. Thats all , its wierd.

Then the problem is with video board DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) or with the monitor. Can you connect another monitor to your VB or maybe a TV? Is the white line still there?
Update the drivers anyway

Then probably it's a DAC related problem...
BTW, are you sure you get back the same GPU you send before to repair?

Well the IT man who I know, said I can watch tv cahnnels with it, but he didnt build them in. Now where do I get another monitor?
I dont want to call the guarantine man , cuz I dont think they get me an super expensive video card and I have no idea how to connect it to the tv, even when I have heard that you can actually to that.

My mother suggested me to wait on buy an memory stick to tranfer all my stuff to, and then ask someone to fix this problem.

But poeple seem not to want to think and look for the problem. ( or like lately I think their silly, cuz when I say something , they like " never heard")

and please expain what an GPU is, I dont knwo the english words about computers.
