Question about Evga 512-P3-N862-AR GeForce 9600 GT GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card Retail, PCI Express

5 Answers

No connection to monitor

Ok, here's the problem. I've been using this video card on my gaming rig for about 3 months. Last week I went to turn it on for some WoW raiding, and I get no action on my monitor. Only a message reading "No signal" and then the monitor shuts off. After testing various components, I've narrowed the problem down to the video card. I've tested every cable, monitor, and other video cards in my rig possible. My old 7600 card works in the rig, but the 9600 does not. There was no warning, no slowdown in the days leading up to this problem, or anything that would lead me to believe my card would decide to play dead. Any ideas? Another thing that may be interesting: The problem may have something to do with the DVI ports. My monitor has jacks for DVI and VGA ports, and the 9600 card only has DVI ports, but my 7600 card has DVI and VGA. The DVI port on my 7600 card also does not work. The VGA port works fine, but not the DVI port on the card. I've confirmed this again by testing every component that connects to the card, up to and including using a VGA adapter on the DVI ports of both the 9600 and the 7600, neither of which were functional. Only the VGA port works. Any clues?

    I did use the VGA adapter on the 9600, as well as the 7600, and neither of em worked. It's definitely the ports on the cards. I haven't tested any other cards, but is it possible there's something wrong with my mobo that's causing the DVI ports to mess up? That's the only thing that I can think of, because it just seems bizarre that this problem would happen on both cards at the same time.

    I had exactly the same problem with my 7600GS...
    While i was playing Neverwinter Nights 2, great game ^^, my screen gave the no signal screen and shut down...
    Apparantly the game was a little too much for the 3d card. I had played with lowest graphs but the stupid thing still broke....
    Luckily I am just buying a new pc!
    But all you can do about the problem is getting another video card, and try to cool this one better...

    Did you ever solve this? I have almost exactly the same problem. It started when I hooked up a new monitor (yet the system worked with my old 7200GS). I RMA'd the card and the new one didn't work either. EVGA says they tested both cards and found nothing wrong.



    I've replaced the MB, RAM, CPU and now the power supply and still no luck.



    I have been able to get the 7200GS to work through the DVI port simply by turning the monitor off and on to reset it after the initial installation.

I had a similar issue when i upgraded to a new monitor the n later adde a DVI cable. I have a 7600 running through DVI...used to run through VGA. problem was when i got the DVI cable i just swapped out with the old VGA cable. my monitor has a "source" button to select anolog (VGA) or digital (DVI) modes. i had to reboot the PC and everything was fine. no problems since. try looking to see if your monitor has a "source" button. also when swithcing between cables or adding the dvi to vga adaptor turn the system off then plug the adaptor/other cable in then powering back up.

You need a new cable. make sure you get a DVI-D cable. DVI cable come in 5 flavors, but they can only be: analog or digital. they are NOT interchangable. although, DVI-I cables are both analog AND digital.

analog cables have extra pins next to the flat pin.
digital cables only have the flat pin.

refer to the guide on this page: http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html

Well, the pointis that when i replaced the video card with my old one, it worked again, though i have lost the drivers for it, and i dont have a clue what model it is. I thought i had the right driver, and windos says the same, but the screen still is kinda weird. Everything is moving, not loke it's adjusting the resolution, but like at the point between 2 colors, pixels are changing between the one color and the other. It isn't reading realy nice when every word seems to be moving...
I de-installed the old driver (for the newer video card) before installing the 1 for the older, so i think i did everything right, but...well, it doesn't work.
If anyone knows a solution apart from deleting the entire pc and reinstalling from scrap, I'd like to know.

Thanks!,

Yannick

Did you try using the VGA adapter on the 9600? If it works then your dvi port on the monitor has crapped out.

Blank screen, No video signal


Try to uninstall/reinstall the video card and make sure that you're installing the software from the setup CD and also you can try updating the software of the video card if you still have the problem after uninstalling/reinstalling it..

Hope that helps.........

Detects monitor but no video


Hi there.
Due to Nvidia's architecture limitation, you can only use a maximum of 2 monitors on 1 graphics card. In order to run 3 monitors you will need to SLI your 570 with another 570. This can be extreamly costly.
If you want a cheap route to get a 3rd monitor, use a USB to DVI connection on the third monitor, it's great and cheaper than buying another card if you just want a monitor for basic use and not gaming. If you want to game with it then you're going to have to SLI with another card.

Wont turn on


The computer start up? or does't work?
If the computer doesn't work, check first the power supply.
Second, the memory and the video card.

See first which video card is supported by the motherboard (Agp, 2x, 4x, 8x) or use some PCI video card.

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

Once a picture tube gets magnetized it may display the same rainbow effect on another PC. Do you have anything close to it that could be causing a magnetic field, like large speakers? If so move them farther away. A rainbow effect is definately a degaussing and/or a magnetic field interferrence problem. If the degauss circuit is functioning properly leaving it turned off for a few hours (so it cools to room temp internally) and then turning it on should make it degauss. It is possible that the degauss is not powerful enough to rid the tube of severe magnetism, in which case you need to use a manual (handheld) degausser.
