    How many GHz did the card call for to be compatable? Was Pentium D listed in the compatability list? Most of these cards will work with older processors,but double check to make sure before you buy them.

Bla bla worst thing will be that the grafic card will bottel neck itself and not because of cpu the fsb has to do about that but to instal just plug it in the pci-e slot should do a nice click but put your bare rist on the metal of the computer to ground yourself and remove all power so you dont get a shoking event

My Pc just shut down while i was playing a game. i unplugged my geforce 9600 gt's power and my pc worked again, but without graphics. what is wrong with my graphics card???


The problem that caused the PC to shut off is the GForce graphics card is drawing too much power and the switch mode power supply was overloaded and shut down.
Check the switch mode power supply's wattage, if it is around 300 to 400 watts, it maybe be too low. You most likely need to get a higher wattage switch mode power supply, especially if you added more RAM, disk drives, DVD drives etc. to your PC after the initial purchase of the PC.

The below link is a decision support tool from NVidia. You may find this helpful because it takes into consideration the use that you want to get out of your card (video editing, gaming, high HD resolutions, etc):

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

Try to start in safe mode by tapping the F8 key as you start the computer,then choose "Last known good configuration" or use the system restore feature to go back a day or 2.
