My pc was initially restarting when ever i started a game but now it restarts even when i open a media player.i have hp d330 motherboard 1 gb ddr1 ram 160 gb hard disk geforce fx 5600 (256 mb)...


I have a PixelView NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 (click on the link to see it) graphics card and my computer started doing very strange things with my video and was locking up my computer. I pulled the card out and looked at the capacitors on it and saw the tops of them were bulging and stuff was leaking from them. The capacitors are the green cylinders with the silver tops and the gold/yellow writing. I replaced the capacitors and that fixed the problem but it would be easier to just replace the video card.

I can not play 3D games because the screen is black even i have installed driver, its does not work, i only play with 2D games,before that i still normally playing games 3D,i guess something is wrong with...


Let's see if something IS wrong with the card, or it is something else.

Some of what I may state, may sound like I'm insulting your intelligence. Please be aware that this is the furthest thing from my mind. I'm just trying to 'Cover all bases', to help you get your problem solved.

1.Sometimes we get in a hurry, and look back to see that the monitor was not hooked into the graphics card, but was accidentally hooked into the VGA port on the motherboard.

2.If this is an Nvidia GeForce FX5200, and you're trying to play a game like Crysis, it isn't going to work. Not enough 'graphics power' on that card.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_FX_.285xxx.29_series

(You need at least an Nvidia GeForce 9800GT to use medium to medium/high settings)

You also need a decent processor.
Celeron, Pentium 4, and Pentium D won't cut it, and you should have 2GB's of Ram Memory.

3.The best way to install a graphics card is to install the drivers off of the CD, FIRST, then turn off the computer, unplug from power, de-static yourself, and install the graphics card.

Why?
Because as soon as a device is installed on a computer using Windows, Windows breaks it's neck trying to find compatible drivers for it.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up generic drivers out of it's database. It has THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Won't be the right ones, though! You need THE drivers for that GeForce FX5200. The ones that came with it on that CD.
When you install THE drivers after you have installed the graphics card, you get a Driver Conflict.

Windows: "Which one's do I use? These or THESE?"

If this is the situation you may want to try this.

A.Turn off your computer normally. Unplug it from power. Open the case. Work on a table, and TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case.

(Your body carries Static electricity. Static will FRY OUT delicate computer hardware components! You may not see it or feel it! Computer unplugged from power, you're safe. Touch the metal frame, and your computer is safe. IF you get up, and leave for Any reason while working on your computer, when you come back TOUCH the metal frame again.

Install a graphics card while the computer is plugged into power, you'll fry out that graphics card!)

B.Remove your graphics card. You need to lay it down on a non-static area.

C.Push the Power On button in, and Hold it In for a count of Five seconds. Let go. Do this procedure Two more times.
You are clearing out CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup, back to the factory default settings.

D.Now attach the monitor cable to the VGA port on the motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

E.Plug the computer back into power. Leave the case open. You'll be back in there in a few minutes. (Do Not reach inside!)

F.WAIT 1 minute, then power on your computer. After Windows loads, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
Remove the Nvidia software. ALL of it. Anything you see associated with the Nvidia name.

If you are asked to restart your computer, do so. If not, restart your computer. (Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Click on Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

G.After Windows loads, install the Drivers from the CD disk.

H.After you're done with the instllation, if you are asked to Restart your computer - NO!
Click on Restart Later. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Turn your computer off.

Unplug from Power!

I.Touch the metal frame again. Install the graphics card. Close the computer case. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Video Card PNY VERTO GEFORCE 8400 GS stop working


adcg,
the world of war craft is played online through servers, not just on your computer. the version is needed to see if there are issues with your video card, Do you have XP home or XP pro?
you have more than 1 mb of ram
at this point I am going to say that you have issues with the video card take it back and get an ATI to replace it, they are better and have less issues.
you could also be having an overheat problem with the CPU and that means you need a new heat sink and fan assembly to keep the CPU cooler when you are running this game.
That is about all the help I can give you , my advice is to take the computer to a service center and have them look at the CPU heat sink and fan assembly to see if it is working properly.
hope this helps

I have a asus 7200 gs 256mb graphic card my pc keep restarting


Your PC keeps restarting because while playing your video card is highly solicited,and this causes overheating. The solution to your issue is to buy a cooling fan and attach it to the cooling grid.

If this solution worked for you please rate it. If you require further assistance feel free to post a followup comment.

GeForce FX 6800 Graphic... Problem


Hi,
you should look for updated drivers - www.nvidia.com
If the problem persists, it might suggest a hardware problem.
It is a good idea to test the card in another machine and see if the same problem happens.(maybe in your friends computer ?)

Graphics card problem


Your graphics card might be going bad. The GPU might be getting too hot. Power down the machine, open the computer case and inspect the graphics card. If your graphic card has a fan, is it covered in dust. Get some of those compressed air cans from walmart or any other store, and blow out the dust.

If you still have a warranty on the PC, don't open the case, this may void your warranty. Since you are posting here, I will assume you don't have one, so go nuts with the Air cans.

Also you might have caused too much damage, and might need to get a new graphic card, but try the air cans first.
