Graphic card proble

I have an NVidia 6600 GT Graphic Card purchase in 2005


Proble: Monitor shuts down (Freezes) after 35 to 45 mins, after intalling the card.

PC Specification: Windows XP (SP2), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.00 GHz, 1GB RAM, 300 Watts SMPS, Intel 945 Chipset Motherboard, Viewsonic LCD Monitor.

Please solve the above problem!

I never tried playing any games on this card. I work only in Coreldraw, Photoshop, 3D Max, and other graphic softwares.

Hi,

Looks like heat related problem on two possible areas.
1. The LCD monitor itself, probably a cold solder or overheated capacitor either in the power supply or inverter circuits; or
2. The video card heatsink isn't getting enough ventilation. If it's got a small blower fan, it might be stuck, burned out or simply clogged with dust.

You would need to open the units for a look and see.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My motherboard is Manli geforce 6100 value and i am instaled Vga card Zotac Nvidia 9500 GT with processor AMD Athlon 5200 x2, ram corsair 2Gb dual chanel, PSU extreme 450. my problem: My PC performance is...


I would back off the 9500 GT and get the onboard video working first.

I would also suggest that you don't have a good enough PSU for that 9500 card, Corsair memory, and the and the AMD 64 x2 5200.

That could account for the slowing down and occasional blank out. The Extreme 450 is much better suited for a milder, stock system.

For that system I would suggest a GOOD PSU at least 650 and preferably 700 to 750.

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
