Its excess heat check the nvidia monitor if it exceeds 65-70 degrees celcius.Firstly take precautions turn off computer from main switch press power button for 5-10 seconds make your hand touch the surface of the unpainted metal part to discharge static, Remove card (Found in manual).If it seems quite hot you can remove the heat sink by pressing in the plastic clips on the bottom and dust it off with a medium paint brush, BECAREFUL OF THE POWER CORD. you could use compressed air and blow under the heat sink and see to dust it off

ATI Radeon HD driver installation error: product identification error

Hello there.
I am an ATI Radeon customer myself (I own an ATI Radeon HD 2600XT) and there's a problem that I've faced for a long long time and have finally found the solution.
If you have this driver or any other ATI Radeon HD 2600/3600 series you might have noticed already that when trying to install the drivers (both out of the CD or the downloaded once) the driver-installation program does NOT identify that you have that exact model. Thus, causing you problems of not being able to play high quality PC Games and/or Video Codecs problems.
I was astonished, that's an error from ATI side, what should I do?
Well thank god ATI put an eye for that problem and they finally published a solution to it, a hotfix.
How to apply the hotfix and finally enjoy the potentials of this amazing Video Card?
Go here
Select your operation system. (For me, I have Windows XP Professional, so I would click Catalyst 10.4 Hotfix for Windows XP PRofessional and Home Edition.)
And by clicking there it prompts you to download the hotfix that includes the driver and ATI Catalyst.
Install it, and you're good to go.

You can restore your PC to the earlier time when your PC worked fine... i e , before installing your new drivers...

Type SYSTEM RESTORE in the search and click on it... Proceed through it and it will show many restore points... Select the one when your PC worked fine... And click restore... Your PC will go back to earlier settings...

Hope it will be helpful...

My computer freezes when gaming & the graphics becomes corrupted

As a gamer myself, most issues I had like those ended with me up/downgrading my videocard drivers if it wasn't something like a fan/heat problem. Nvidias' newest driver is the best I've used to date, though I have heard others have had problems with it. get a benchmark utility, if you haven't already. try out some of the other drivers available, if your comfortable doing that. go to nvidia's site and let thier engine detect the proper driver. Best of luck ..

I want to know the solution of 3d card problem?

My first instinct is that the card doesnt have enough juice to run the game. Check the minimum requirements on the box ( usually the bottom ). Post what the video requirement is.

of your PC is failing... many of this problems are very hard to fix...
first of all it might be a power supply problem.. take note that it gives the proper current for your pc to work,therefore a failing PSU

try disabling your Built in VGA... try cleaning your pc with dust and try to run it again... and last is your sound card... it might have conflicts on your onboard sound chip... try disabling it at your BIOS... as ive told you its complicated because you will never be sure what part of your pc is causing the problem...
and also check if your pc is overheating...

top 5 problems are

Games problems

try to use a low version of a driver or download this detonator. it will operate only on some features of your video card it wont push the video card to the limit so that you wont experience any mixing color while playing in warcraft. by the way just adjust the configuration of your warcraft in video so that you will enjoy your game with no hassle. hope that helps!
