Question about BFG Technologies NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT,, PCI Express Video Card
When cold starting my comp will run for a few minutes before the monitor glitches locks up and goes black. When I reset the start up screens are garbled with random characters all over. After windows loads up all goes blank. It will keep doing this until I let is sit for a few hours or I switch to Safe Mode. When in safe mode everything operates as normal safe mode. Any Ideas to what is causing this? Specs: geforce 9800 gt running on Windows Vista. Intel Core 2 Quad cpu Q6600 @2.4 ghz 64 bit os.

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.
