Question about Computers & Internet
I have a 650 Watt PS running a MSI K7N Delta with a XP3200 AMD SC, 2 Gigs of PC3200, Audigy Value SC,Optiquest 21" CRT Monitor, and just bought a VGA PNY VCG76512SAPB 7600GS AGP R . My issue is that during MS Flight SimulatorX with DX 9. C on Windows XP, My PC goes Black, the
system freezes, or the PC reboots, or any combination of the 3.
I have been working with the following drivers:
18.104.22.16821 & the ninety-three seventy-ones forceware.
I've tried many "game" settings, from very low to very high.
I've set the BIOS AGP Aperature from 128 to 256 to 512.
I also set it to look to the AGP slot first. ( rather than PCI )
I've been through the NVIDIA Control Panel, adjusting Driver Settings many times using different combinations, along with the default settings too.
I've used signed and unsigned monitor drivers.
Do you have a recommendation for settings using this card w/ FlightSim X?
Could the VC be trying to use DX10? I reloaded the DX9c's.
Are there any Firmware updates?
What other help can you suggest?
Thanx in advance,
Where was the card purchased from. You may just have a half dead card.
If you got it from tiger direct or newegg i would RMA it if you are still within your RMA time frame.
Otherwise contact PNY they may have a manufacturers warranty.
I would definitely replace the card because it is either 1 overheating and shutting down. One way to check that would be to download a program called SPEEDFAN and run that while you're playing. It will give you the temperatures of your components in your computer along with the RPM at which your fans are running.
I would download speedfan run it and run your game in windowed mode. So you can view your temps. Anything above 80 degrees Celsius and i would definitely suspect that the card is overheating. Even in the high 70's i would be a bit nervous of the temps. My videocard runs at 28 degrees idle and about 45 under full load. Which is low for most cards.
