Nice Video card... consider also the performance of the processor and the amount RAM of your system... Also in playing games there are Anti-viruses that really affects the performance of your computer... if your not on the online game... try closing some applications to increase the power performance of your PC.

The video also relies on the processor.
I'm sure you closed all of your programs before you play any game.

Try increasing your page file.

  • Right click "My computer", then click "properties".
  • click on the "advanced" tab. In the "Performance" seciton, click "settings".
  • Click the "Advanced" tab.
  • Under "Virtual Memory", click "change".
  • click "C:" in the table/menu/list.
i have a brand new - f12857b.jpg
  • select "system managed size". OR if you know your disk limits and performance limits, you could change this to suit your needs.
  • click "set"
  • click "ok" to all the boxes that pop up.
  • restart your computer.
If this doesnt help, look for any updates or patches to your specific game.

Or, you may need a CPU speed of at least 2 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM.

How to covert to Mac edition (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro)


Even if you do this, I would not guarantee it will work. Before you destroy it and void the warranty, you could probably return it or sell it on eBay. It's still a decent card for a AGP variety.

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.

Texture Freezing


download a GPU monitoring tool here.. http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/

check the temps for your video card... if it exceeds 55-60 degrees celcius. its probably heating up. try to upgrade the GPU cooling. "Palit, inno3d, galaxy" these brands usually has crappy cooling systems for their cards. Plus, the nvidia 9800 series is known to produce alot of heat.

I've had a similar problem like yours... I've had a 9800GT inno3d.. it has a crappy cooling system to i had to buy it a zalman graphics card cooling system. It solved the problem...

Hi, bioshock keeps shutting down to the desktop ,im useing vista home , i here theres some sort of game fix but cant seem to find it ,please help thanx


You may be using too much memory, so it doesnt have enough memory to do its functions. Un-install anything you dont use.
If this doesnt work, get the graphics card which is RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM, simply because some games dont work on minimum.
If this still doesnt work, then get it checked out at a nearby Electronic Repair Store, and see what they make of it.

Can't use game pad on new game


It may not be compadible with bioshock. I had the same experience had to return the game pad. I only paid 10 dollars for my game pad, goes to show you get what you pay for. Invest in something more expensive, it will pay out in the long run.
