check your signal cable, try to clean connections on the ends of cable, are you using any adaptors to connect the screen, maybe the adaptors arent working correctly. Is or was your GPU overclocked?. There could be many reasons, but start with the simplest and work your way thru.

I recommend using a third party application by MSI.
The application is called MSI AfterBurner --> link
It will allow you to overclock everything, and monitor heat of the GPU.

Hi, The recommended PSU for your card is 550W.
After you connect it to your motherboard you have to connect a (6pin) PCIE power connector
to the card. Without it the video card will not display anything.

Overclock fan speed question


The amount that you can overclock you're video card differes for each individual card. The limiting factors are temperatures and stability. If games start crashing, etc you should back off the overclocking. Also keep in mind the temperature of the card. Increasing fan speeds will lower the temperatures of the card. Increasing the fan speed (as long as you don't go beyond 100%) will not damage the card... It will be louder though. For the 9800gt, the maximum temperature before damage is 105 degrees C. Try to keep the temperatures at 80 or below optimally. Increasing the fan speed is the best way to accomplish this.

So if the ms7528 mobo is not sfe to overclock... but i use like AVGA precision to OC my graphics card(9800GT) would that still cause conflicting problems somehow? I'm new to the OC'ing. I Is it safe to...


I have never used this mobo before have others had problems with overclocking? you could try updating the BIOS/Firmware this might solve the problem. You are correct in saying that AVGA will only overclock your GFX card the bast way to overclock is go up a few Mhz at a time and test it when you hit a point were the PC becomes unstable go back a few steps so your not running it on its limit

Hope this helps tom

First can you put card in a friends pc ?2nd check if card is seated in slot well if you have a cheap psu some times the 12volt rails can fail but best thing to do is check in another pc then you can start to problem solve could be psu gpu pci express lane iam leaning to psu if its a l cheap o if thats a good quailty one then it looks like gpu

I have a nvidia geforce 9400 Gt graphics card how can i overclock


Read this...

You're not going to get a lot out of that card, it's pretty stripped down being a 9400. Anyways, download Rivatuner then after it detects your video card it will update your registry which will allow it to manipulate your video card.

You then use it to increase your Memory and Core clocks, and also the shader clock in VERY small steps. Increase it by perhaps 20MHz then try playing the most visually demanding game that you own and play it for like 5 to 10 minutes and watch for anything out of the ordinary. When you've pushed your card too high there are obvious signs, like random pixels flashing across the screen, textures showing up wrong (colours where they shouldn't be), or your game can simply lag or crash.

Also download Speedfan and monitor your GPU temperature closely. See what it idles at normally, then use Rivatuner to increase your fan speed to somewheres around 75% and make sure that the temperatures don't pass 70C.

Overclocking voids warranties and you can damage your graphics card if you push it too hard. You have to be careful and watch for signs that it's being pushed too hard. Also, you have to make sure that you set your clock speeds back to normal when you don't need the extra power. It's easier on your card then running it at 120% or something permanently.

Graphic Driver dropping


If you are overclocking the GPU with ntune, turn it off. If not, and you are running a PSU ( power supply unit) with lower Watts, should be replaced with higher. The card you are using power consumption is 289 watt. Total recommended PSU is of 680 Watt. Unless you change the Old psu, if havnt changed till, Your system has to crash.

XFX 8400GS showing garbage or line at windows XP starup


I think you have added ntune. did you? it overclocks the GPU. Please try to remove the ntune. may try a fresh install and setup drivers again. donot try overclocking.

If this doesnot solve the problem, the problem is of GPU itself. Try it on another computer then.

Leadtek GeForce 8600 GT Extreme Video Card - 256MB GDDR3, PCI Express, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, Video Card


Usually the power quoted is for the entire system, not for the graphic card. The 8600GT systems (even yours with the overclocked GPU) would run fine with any PSU which comes true 300W (Single Rail PSU).

A key thing it seems in the amperage of your 12V, if its less than 18 or 20 (some say it should be even higher), it might not be enough for your graphic card as it does not come with an extra power socket (only the 8600GTS and above have this).
