Screen goes black while playing Demigod/Titan Quest

I'm running a Velocity Micro Desktop computer and recently upgraded my computer with a 9600 GT Geforce Nvidia card. This hasn't happened before but when I play Titan Quest off of Steam my screen goes black; and nothing I do brings it back, it only fixes itself when I turn my computer off manually. The only other game it happens frequently with is Demigod. It doesn't happen immediately it always takes a while; but with either game it has happened every time. Spore is the only other full screen game I play like Demigod or Titan Quest and it has never gone to a black screen.

    Thanks Dan, you've just pushed me over the fence, apparantly my 4 year old computer is in need of an upgrade to a newer model. Not really solving the problem, but I think having a nice new computer will be a sweet fix.

    Two things come to mind. Are you using the latest drivers for the video card? also make sure your BIOS is updated using the latest flash. See if that takes care of the weird problems.

If the pc plays on some of the games without going blank, I will suggest two things for to do. Adjust the screen resolution perhaps a little higher than what you have now. Finally, upgrade your RAM capacity. However, reverting to your former card can do the magic as I can sense that the new card may be running higher than what PCI socket on your mainboard can carry. It may be incompatible and only managing for now. Good luck

Make sure that your system meets minimum requirement for playing it. Game may freeze due to less available hard disk, low capacity RAM and processor. So I would suggest you to follow these simple tips to avoid your games from freezing:-

- Disinfect your system using some reliable antivirus program.
- Upgrade hardware (RAM, CPU, graphics card, etc.)
- Uninstall unnecessary programs (Games, crapware, toolbars, etc.)
- Click Start> 'Run' Type msconfig > Enter > Start Up. Uncheck the boxes for the programs that you think you may not use often.
- Clean all the junk files, registry errors and all the cache (Must use reliable program like I always use RegInOut for it.)

Thank You :-)

HELP!! my computer screen keeps going black when i play games :(


There is probably something wrong with the card. You updated the drivers
after the problem ,,right.

You have 3GB ram so that is ok. Your cpu and video card are just fine,
so the most possible would be the card is failing.

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/



I have posted a stability test and a benchmark/ stress test for you to check the card, download the one for your OS, xp, vista.

If the card is going, it will act up when you test the card.
