    Do you have onboard video (is the a vga adapter built onto your motherboard)? If so, remove the video card you have plugged in and use the onboard and let us know if you still get blue screens.

    during your next blue screen i would like you to pay attention to it and tell me what you see, as the blue screen tells you whats causing the problem, when it happens again please tell me the first four lines in the error

    A Blue Screen can mean many things... If it has a lot of text on the screen, HEX and Binary numbers (references to memory locations) then what you have is a blue screen of death... This could be from a number of things like faulty RAM, OS Corruptions such as a virus could cause, Disk Read Errors and even CD-ROM read errors can sometimes cause blue screens... There are a wide range of problems that can cause this, so if you could provide information such as numbers or filenames, better yet if it will show you the Blue Screen without shutting off write down all the info it gives you... If you are getting a blue solid color with nothing to read then you may have a bad VGA Cable or your video card / chipset might be going out and hopefully it's not your Monitor. I very highly doubt it is any of that and is very likely a problem with your OS.

Blue Screen displays wen two or more Programs(Windows Aplication) tries to access one thing ...

Hi, I am sorry you are having issues with your graphics card.

Yes the oven trick does work but it is only temporary and you will have to do that process over and over until the card just all out quits responding. Once a GPU begins to display multicolored or blue lines across the monitor its time to put it out to pasture so to speak.

I have an old dell dimension 2400 and I am trying to install an nvidia geforce fx 5500 pci card and I keep getting a blue screen when windows gets to the desktop.

If the blue screen appears only if the video card is plugged in that only means it's not compatible with your computer. If you want to know what video cards you can use for that computer try to go to this link.

Good luck !

Games do not work, when installed games and started computer display goes

This is most frequently a driver related problem when an installed game specifically causes the issue and nothing else.

Check the "Read This" file in the game's install disk to check for know issues with specific video cards.

Go to the ASUS support site and download the latest drivers for the card, as this can frequent resolve problems.

Where is the video card in gateway model GT5028

That model's video card is built into the motherboard so it is not a separate or "discrete" video card. While looking at the back of the computer the video output will be a blue port with 15 holes in it.

Ati 9600 vista blue screen during firefox surfing

The blue screen indicates an hardware error, giving more information about the error in the blue screen would have helped better. the blue screen maybe is happening because of some problem with your RAM. if there is dust in yuor cabinet or there isnt enough cooling, it causes these sort of problems.

Your best bet is to go to AMD's website (AMD bought ATI) for the latest driver for the card. You did not specify the full part number, or the operating system, but here is one location as a starting point.
In today's rush to market environment, vendors frequently ship product before the software is ready.
