If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all.
Yes upgrade your directx to 10
and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater.
The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and
when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the
Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.

Check that  between your processor and its radiators there is a glue like substance if it goes out then your processor is taking overheat and not being able to run high end things.

How to install video card?


Hello Ruel

I have step by step procedure about installing video card.
1. Turn off your PC, unplug it, and remove your computer's case. "Your computer should have either a PCI-Express 16x or AGP slot for your card. The card won't fit into the wrong slot, so you can't go wrong. But don't confuse your computer's thin memory slots for its video card slot."
2. With a small screwdriver, remove the screw holding in the old card or the metal cover. "Don't lose that screw! You need it to secure the new card in place."
3. If you're replacing an old card, pull it up and out of the slot (left). "If you're not replacing an old card, remove the metal cover from the back of your computer (right)."
4. Hold the card by its edges and position it over the correct slot. "The edge with the shiny metal bracket should face toward the back of your computer. (That shiny bracket replaces the cover, if you removed one.)"
5. Line up the tabs and notches on the card's bottom with the notches in the slot. Push the card slowly into the slot. "You may need to rock the card back and forth gently. When the card pops in, you can feel it come to rest. Don't force it!"
6. If the video slot has it, bend out the flexible plastic retaining clip that fits over a tab on the end of the video card. "When the card fits into the slot, release the clip, letting it hold the card in place."
7. Secure the card in the slot with the screw you removed in Step 3, then plug the computer back in, turn it on, and see whether Windows recognizes and installs the card. "Windows usually recognizes newly installed cards and sets them up to work correctly."
8. If everything's working, put your PC's cover back on. "If something goes wrong, turn off your computer, unplug it, and make sure you've seated the card correctly."

Be careful not to touch any chips. Touch as little as possible on the video card or inside your machine.
If possible, do the installation in an non-carpeted area to avoid static.
If possible, use the slot with the most open space around it.
If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the video card for you.

Why wont my acer aspire z5700 pc play call of duty it loads up but its plays very slow


The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).

My computer won't play the counter strike game


Hi,

This will be because your computer is not supporting high end graphics. This game requires high-end graphics as well as good video resolution graphics card.

If you are saying that you have good resolution graphics card then I think you can also check for DirectX drivers for windows platforms which are useful while playing high-end graphics games.

Thanks,
Amar

Does the video card have a cooling fan on it or a passive heatsink? If it has a fan then make sure it is working when the computer is on. If it does not have a fan you could try installing a small fan on the heatsink to help cool it. Is your powersupply rated high enough to work on that video card? High end video cards are very power hungry and might be taxing your current power supply. If the voltage drops it could cause the video card display to shut off...especially when playing video games at high res. Verify that the video card is properly seated into the slot and you may also want to try and remove the card, clean the contacts, and the re-insert the card. And if you are using software to overclock the card or if you computer multiplier/FSB has been raised then this can raise the clock speed of the agp/pci-express port and cause video problems. Also verify that the agp/pci-express voltage is adjusted to what the video card requires.

My acer 5738G shuts down abruptly when i start playing games. its not even a month now tht i have bought this laptop. what is the problem?


Hi again.
The Graphic adapter is nVidia GeForce G105M, the dedicated video memory is 512 MB.
The games you are playing require 512 MB minimum!!!
This means the the graphics card cannot handle the games you are playing because they are really made for a desktop PC.
The only way around this is to lower the resolution of the game so its not using the high end settings.
It won't look as good but at least you will be able to play them.
If you are a gamer i recommend you think about a gamers desktop computer as they are built for that.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Graphics breaking up


Well, just for kicks... It's a heatsink and not a fan on there? Maybe when playing games, open the case, put a household fan on to circulate the air especially on the videocard. Heatsinks are a temporary replacement in case the fan goes out on the video card. I use heatsinks as a quickfix for video cards at my job...but they aren't playing games on the PC, so the video cards aren't really going to heat up. Yeah, it does sound like a faulty card, but maybe the above tips will allow you to still play games with the card.
