Circuit boards are very easy to mess up, and usually if something like that happens, other dammage that is not easily visible can occur. Thoroughly inspect the board for anything that looks unusual. Something else in the board may be fried along with a list of other potential problems. The bus (small metal strips on the bottom) may be broken or shorted as well. If it is an expensive card, you can take it to a repair shop and they can possibly fix it (no guarantee) or you will probably have to replace the card. If you have any other questions, let me know. Hope this helps.

It could be that your card is getting hot...does it happen after some time of playing?It could also mean that your patches for your game will need to be updated..to fix the heat issue get a program called EVGA precision and put up your fan speed on the card..here is the link for evga precision http://downloads.guru3d.com/EVGA-Precision-1.7.1-download-2251.html..Let me know the outcome if possible please ;-)

Vga not working tried agp video card


Hi Eugene!
Okay, so if there is not beeps of such......
If you can remember the last time you started up your PC or had it running, did you have a power surge?

Try taking out the BIOS Clock (Watch battrie)
for a day or so, then it should be drained... Replace it you might hear beep, if you screencomes on make your processor clock is back around it avrg state if not "Load with optimized default" Option on BIOS. Best bet.
Peace.

GeForce FX 5500 compatability


The FX5500 is a poor-quality videocard - if you're trying to buy one look for a 6800GT or GTX - at the very least a 5800 or 5900. They should work in 4x or 2x and Starcraft and Diablo will play great!

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

Either your graphics agp slot needs the driver updating or the card itself is faulty, check the agp slot for dust and gently moneuvre the card in the slot to see if the lines appear to change and check that therea are no bent pins in your connecting plug or card.
