6800gt power issues

Hi, i have a pixelview 6800gt pciexpress edition and it has been acting up on me recently.. this card seems to have a LED to show that the card is working and functional but when i power up my computer the LED flashes on and then immediatley turns off...seems like i dont have enough power but i have a thermaltake 430watt power supply and i think that is not the cause. i think that the card is faulty but after several attempts of turning my computer on and off until the LED and fan starts working it works.. what is the problem with my card? :)

Re: 6800gt power issues

Either it has a bad regulator IC or relay IC. The guy from service center told me so :)

Re: 6800gt power issues

It may be a sign the fan is going/went bad. You should try unhooking the fan. See what happens. Turn the system on...If it works, great. You should replace the fan. Video cards have fans as a bonus to cool them down. If a fan goes bad and gets a short it will affect the video card. Hopefully the heat didn't damage the card. Good Luck, Tim

Hd 6850 keeps crashing driver

Download and install the latest driver and AMD Catalyst setup for your card. Download from the manufacturer of your cards' own website. If this doesn't work you may be advised to run a virus/malware checker, as it may not be a hardware problem, but some malicious software. Good luck.

PCI Graphic card for Tomb Raider underworld

There are PCI slots in your Machine and one or two PCI-Express slots (one of which might be very short). Usually the Graphics PCI-Express slot is the one on top (right below the CPU).
In order to play Tombraider at a decent speed, you should consider buying a Graphicscard for about 100-120$ going to low will result in low framerates, going to high is not worth the money since graphics cards are becoming obsolete in a matter of 2 years or so...

so get yourself a decent PCE-E GraphicsCard and youll be all set!
Hope this was understandable =)

Xfx 7950gt agp 512mb

Hi, if you have got the drivers for this v/card then load them while you have your present one in place, if you dont have the drivers then go to the manufacturers website and get them . when you have loaded the drivers then check if you need to enable any changes in your bios. Change the card and if it is functional then you should have solved your problem. A card that advanced needs drivers far greater than you would find in XP. Regards mistyman
