    hi sorry it took so long to reply agen. ok you might not have a new enough direct x installed on your pc if its lower than 9.0c it wnt work and also with the counter strike source i have i have to open it up with the half life launcher if you have that then try it with that and but it might be some thing on your pc at fault so take the installed files straight from your friends pc and copy them into your pc and make a shot cut of the sc source exe. file on your desktop. it should work then

I am having problems with my nvidia geforce 6800 gt. When i turn on my pc everything is fine but whenever i play games for ex. Bioshock or counter strike source my pc screan turns off and says no signal....

i suspect youyr graphics card is heating up and shutting off to prevent damage. windows will also shut it off but usually repaorts that it did. here is my reccomendation:
1. open side case and place a fan right nest to it. if this makes it work then heat is definitely trhe culprit. if so install a video card cooler or another exhaust fan.
2 turn all the graphics options down on the game. shut anti aliasing off and all options to minimun. then try to play if it still shuts off then your card may be on its last leg from over heating. the 6800 gt was ok when it came out but todays games require more. in fact the newer games won't run on a 6800 gt.
the big thing is heat. the standard 6800 gt just doesn't get rid of enough heat. in fact the 9800 gt i had overheated and burned out. i stay away from gt and now use gtx cards. they have a better cooler and ususally the vent outside of the case.

You may have adjusted the video settings of the games to higher settings that may not be compatible with your card.
While in a game press the windows key and D together.
If you go back to desktop it means the video settings of your games are to set higher than your card can support.
Hope this helps.
For further assistance please feel free to ask me.

first try to use your video card to another PC which that video card suits the voltage requirement, and monitor requirement, if the result is still the same, try to return it to the store and buy a new one, and if the result is good, maybe it's time to upgrade your Power Supply, and your monitor.
