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

I would try the card in another mainboard, if available and watch the refresh rates. hope this is useful. and try other cards.

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.

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