Question about PNY Verto GeForce 6800GT, (256 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card
I bought a GeForce 8500 GT for my pc that's running vista. My husband and I play World of Warcraft and now after installing the new graphics card, while playing, all of a sudden our screen will go fuzzy and freeze and the monitor will go to sleep. The only way to fix it is if we turn off the pc and restart. Can you help me figure out why it is doing this? For some reason it wouldn't find my make and model of the graphics card at the bottom. So I just put something so I can try to get some help. The graphics card is a Verto GeForce 8500GT 512MB. Thank you for helping.
I have the same problem with the VErto 512 8500 GT!!! i think it's just a P.O.S.! (however I run win xp pro)

-Make sure that the video card is properly seated. and you have installed all the latest drivers and patches of this card from?
try to play games now and if the problem still exist then do:
-At this stage I would recommend just to blame the card's software (drivers) uninstall all drivers and software partinent to this video card. Restart the machine and play the game for a while, see if your monitor crashes. If still does crashes then its the OS.
-Simply uninstall the graphics card from the PC and check if the perfomance of games effect your video. If it still does effect then there is a problem with OS.
Finally I would suggest to simply install the card install the latest patches and drivers from the website of the manufacturer and restart your machine if it works then we can blame faulty driver and software.
-Also please check the manufacturers website of any known issues with this particular card with Vista.
Hope that helped!
