First off all please make sure that your crt is connected to your graphics card directly not your onboard crt port.

after this please go to your bios and choose your pcie card as your default video card.

Once done please save all sitting and restart your pc.

Hope this solve your problem.

Hello.
Looking at your specs, I assume that a Pentium 4 is not enough to run these kinds of games, so the overwhelming amount of data going through the cpu may have been causing your system to overheat.
Do these steps:
(1) Uninstall and then re-install your graphics card driver, if problem persists, go to number 2
(2) Try playing around with the ATI Catalyst settings, set everything there to default
(3) If problem still persists, then I -am- sure that your PC and/or graphics card is way too overheated, in this case:
(a) I recommend getting a heat-monitor (doesn't come cheap though) for your PC, to keep yourself notified of the temperatures of your PC
(b) Try buying more fans and if you can afford it get a water-cooling system

Above all, if you can afford a better -Gaming- PC then I'd suggest that, because your system isn't really that great for new games.

Good luck!

When cold starting, my comp will run for a few


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.
thats all.

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.

The game is not compatible with your graphics card


Well there is a possible solution but it is a little tiresome.

1) Install VirtualBox
2) Create a new virtual machine
3) Install your Operating System on the New Virtual Machine

This invalidates your license unless you have multiple licenses available to you - but I am sure if this works you will buy another license

4) VirtualBox will emulate a differnt Video Card... although it may still not be compatible and if it is compatible it may not be powerful enough to support the game anyway. -- but you never know and all this does is take a little time and costs you nothing

5) Install your game
6) Cross your fingers....

If this does not work - you will have to purchase a different Video Card - Go for an nVidia card - keep away from ATIs

NVidia Geforce FX 5500 Playing Videos and Games


Seems like your video card just is either a little broken, maybe it overheated a couple of times to much, or it simply isn't fast enough to display all these games.
If I were you and I'd want to play these games, I'd buy a new PC.
For US$500 you've got a PC that can easily run these games on high without any problems.
I'm afraid there's no other way to fix this problem, your PC is just too old.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Hi,

Looks like heat related problem on two possible areas.
1. The LCD monitor itself, probably a cold solder or overheated capacitor either in the power supply or inverter circuits; or
2. The video card heatsink isn't getting enough ventilation. If it's got a small blower fan, it might be stuck, burned out or simply clogged with dust.

You would need to open the units for a look and see.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Graphics breaking up


Well, just for kicks... It's a heatsink and not a fan on there? Maybe when playing games, open the case, put a household fan on to circulate the air especially on the videocard. Heatsinks are a temporary replacement in case the fan goes out on the video card. I use heatsinks as a quickfix for video cards at my job...but they aren't playing games on the PC, so the video cards aren't really going to heat up. Yeah, it does sound like a faulty card, but maybe the above tips will allow you to still play games with the card.
