Question about Graphics Cards
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.

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.
I would say its time to replace it sorry
