You can try lowering your resolution size. Graphic intensive games will tax your monitor pretty hard, lowering the resolution helps the monitor to cope with what is being thrown at it.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me a YES that I did try and assist you. Thank you.

I have bfg 9800gt it wont boot .. just puts monitor to sleep ... am2 biostar mother 450 watt power supply 3gb ram triple 3.0 amd cpu

ive had a similar problem before. in the BIOS there somewhere, there is an option to make your computer use the ON BOARD VGA, or to use the PCXI. which ever one is selected is the one that the computer will use. if you can change this option in the BIOS, you might be able to use your video card.

HOW TO INSTALL bfgr981024gtge

  1. This card installs into a PCIE slot on your mainboard. Hopefully you have done your homework and your PC has this type of connection.
  2. Observe Static precautions to prevent ESD which damages components.
  3. With the computer off, remove the existing card (if any) in the PCIE slot. Take a moment and some geek spray to blow out the slot and surrounding area.
  4. Look at the card physically. If it has a 6 pin power connector, you need to connect that to your power supply. Some video cards will ship with an adapter to convert a 4 pin molex into a 6 pin PCIE adapter. Again, hopefully you have already taken this into consideration.
  5. Gently insert the card straight in, applying gentle pressure to get the card to seat. The mounting clip should line up to your case when it's all the way in.
  6. Once it's seated, install a screw or clip to secure the card.
  7. Connect VGA (blue) or DVI cable (white) to the monitor.
  8. Start computer.
  9. The display may look very large. This is normal until drivers, etc. are installed.
  10. Visit to get the drivers (software) for your card. Select your specific model. (9800GT) and your version of windows.
  11. Download the drivers.
  12. Once it finished double-click the file to begin the setup process.
  13. Do not run any other programs while the setup program is running, including browsers, antivirus, etc.
  14. Once the installed is running, choose the express option if available. Otherwise the default options should do just fine.
  15. Once it's done it will probably ask you to restart the system. Go ahead.
  16. If there are any problems please post back where you got stuck and what happened.

Every high framerate game i play causes the graphics to stutter, i have a msi h55 motherboard, i5 quad core processor and 8 gig of ram. could you tell me what might be causing this problem?

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Use my guide to install the latest drivers for your graphics card. It is entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!

The section on Nvidia Graphics Cards applies to you.

Your computer components may be overheating, install as many fans as your computer chassis will allow. Use 120mm fans if you can, Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm fans are Excellent.
The cooler you can get your computer to run the better it will perform and the longer it will last.

Download a program called Hardware monitor.
You will then be able to run this program in the background while you are playing your games, then exit the game and check the maximum temperatures.

CPU temps should not be over 65 Deg
Graphics Card Temps should not be over 70 Deg

The H55 computer mainboard is not really a gaming mainboard, it is more of a media setup.
If you keep every-thing cool I suppose you might get away with it.
You may need to give your mainboard an upgrade to P55, Socket 1156
Get a good make I prefer ASUS.

Happy Gaming, For the Win!

Thanking you kindly

My card freezes up the computer and the screen shows pixels. It worked fine for a while then just stopped. I'm wondering if it's a driver issue. I have an HP m7330n media center.

Hello superfli36, I had same problem with my video card, my best advice to you is your video card got everheated if it shows pixels freezes up, video card needs to be replaced, don't waste you time try to fix it its alot cheaper you can buy new one for less.

Good Luck

I am experiencing fan noise from my bfg nvidia 9800gt 1gb even when not playing games. Its just at a constant high rpm level.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Download and install MSI Afterburner software.

Then you will be able to control fan speeds for different temps.

Happy Gaming

Overclock fan speed question

The amount that you can overclock you're video card differes for each individual card. The limiting factors are temperatures and stability. If games start crashing, etc you should back off the overclocking. Also keep in mind the temperature of the card. Increasing fan speeds will lower the temperatures of the card. Increasing the fan speed (as long as you don't go beyond 100%) will not damage the card... It will be louder though. For the 9800gt, the maximum temperature before damage is 105 degrees C. Try to keep the temperatures at 80 or below optimally. Increasing the fan speed is the best way to accomplish this.

Hi i have a asus P4s533-mx and with a 3GHZ processor and with a geforce6600 (agp) and the games tend to freeze and i have to reboot my system?. any help please

It is the video card. Newer games are so graphic intensive that they freeze up the system if there is not enough video memory. You could try upgrading RAM but I had a problem running newer games until I installed a graphic card that had at least 512 mb video ram onboard. Hope this helps.
