Question about ATI RADEON 9800 PRO (256 MB) Graphic Card

It can. but it can be a number of problems as well. How long has it been since you cleaned out your computer? How long have you had the computer? Do you play a lot of games where the video card would be used a lot? Here's some things that you can do to maybe fix your problem. 1. goto: start -> run type in "msconfig" goto the last tab "startup" and disable all. restart computer 2. goto: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools Now...in this menu you'll want to do 2 things "clean disk" and "defrag" (both of which will most likely take hours of doing) 3. Get a heatsink to put on the video card where the fan was and that should do the same thing as long as you have a good fan in the PC. On another note, you could probably get another fan to put in your system (especially if you like to play a lot of games on your PC)

Tips for a great answer:
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions EIDE SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to have a finishing point to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as faulty fan and the fans electrical lead can cause this problem
if this fails to fix the problem
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory
hope this helps you
