Monitor Image Partially Freeze and PC Stop working

I have a problem with my 4-year-old PC. Occasionally, I can boot up my PC and it can goes into the OS Windows XP. But now, after several minutes, the Monitor will display partial freeze image with abrupt coloring and the PC will hang (input not working anymore). Previously, it happens once in a while, but now it starts right after I turn on the PC.

I suspect it is the Video Card error as I have tried using my Friend's monitor and it still display the same symptom.

    Well, One of the video card's fan stop turning as it is covered by dust.. I strongly suspect the video card, but i try to avoid the hassle if my video card is still alright =)

    Thanks for the comment. I will vacuum once in a while in the future, provided I have bought vacuum cleaner too =).



    I have changed the video card and it works perfectly well now. Thanks ;)

Hey, sounds like your videocard is about to fail. the only option now is to replace the card with another.

The card is damaged. Possibly overheating have you cleaned your pc recently? Might be full of dust and burned.

    I hope you cleaned it, vacuum cleaner can suck it all out, you can use it on fans also, just dont press hard or too long, let the fans spin and the dust will come off hopefully not in your face :-P



    good luck! :-)

Check for dust between the PCIe pins, as this might be causing the computer to stop the boot process in order to "protect" your computer from damage.

Have you checked the bios to see if onboard graphics have been disabled.
You may also have your resolution/refresh rate set to high for the new monitor.
Boot into safe mode (F8 on boot)
This will boot with minimal drivers, your monitor should now come on, if it does then go to you display settings and lower the resolution and refresh rates.
If it does not come on in safe mode, try hook up the old monitor, or another monitor to reduce the resolution

Graphic card ati 1650 pci express on boot up stopped working


Either your graphics card has gone bad or - the PCI Express slot on the motherboard has failed. Alternately you could put the card in another computer and see if it works. you could take it to a local pc shop and have it tested. I work for TechSupportPros of Spokane, WA - I would test the card for free.

Maybe it's a temperature related problem.Youll have to clean the Video Card and CPU heat sink (better with compressed air) :

>Disconect the computer.
>open it up
>carefully take the video card out, watch for screws and plastic lock at the AGP/PCI/PCI express slot.
>spray compressed air to clean the heatsink.
>attemp to take the cpu heatsink out too. if not possible just spray the air to the heatsink inside the computer.
>spray every slot and port with the compressed air
>reinstall vid card and CPU heatsink.
>accomodate al the cables to increase airflow
>check everything properly conected
>close everythinkg


Also I would replace the flat IDE cables with round cables to increase airflow.

If that is not helping, maybe its better to monitor your CPU, RAM and vid card temp.

Installing AGP video card


Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)


There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando

PROBLEM WITH IMAGE


It most certainly sounds like a graphics card problem, especially since it's been working fine up to this point. You might also want to try a different monitor cable just to make sure. Although the components used in today's computers are much more reliable than they used to be they do still fail occasionally. Good luck.
