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.

please tell me what motherborard you have and how much you would like to spend. also what power supply you have, i will make a reccomendation then.

XFX GeForce 6800... | Answered on Jun 23, 2010

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.

these cards come both ways..This is a first generation PCIe card, but some were made with an AGP bridge that allowed them to be used in a AGP slot. You will need to visually inspect the your card. Here is a good description of both and AGP and PCIE slot-- http://www.kids-online.net/learn/click/details/agp.html

depends on your other hardware,but you culd say that 9400gt,is better...

XFX GeForce 6800... | Answered on Apr 05, 2010

That board has PCI, PCI Express and PCIx16 interfaces. So if the video card has any of those interfaces, it should work.

Getting two beeps at the beginning of a post can be a number of things. If you have more than one stick of ram, remove all but one and try starting the computer. If it doesnt boot try all other ram individually. If it does boot then you have a bad memory module. If it continues to fail, it could be your processor, motherboard, a number of things. Try the ram and get back to me and we will move on from there.

No, you dont need any power to the Graphics card.

But make sure that the monitor is connected to the new graphics card that you have installed and not on the on-board VGA card. That should do it for you !

You should download and install this driver instead for your 6800:


That should take care of your problem.

XFX GeForce 6800... | Answered on Nov 24, 2009

Most reviews list the 8400 as launched in august 2007. There are probably hundreds of driver versions, but I would recommend always using the latest version (highest number)

If you're using component cables (red/green/blue) it usually means that you have the cable ends mixed up. Other than that, the PS3 shouldn't output black and white, so it would be a TV setting or cable problem.

XFX GeForce 6800... | Answered on Aug 03, 2009

I don't know if you have tried this yet, but here goes......
When the PC first powers up, hit the F2 or delete key to enter the setup page. See if there is a spot where you can disable the onboard graphics, then save the settings, reboot the PC, and see if this helps the problem. And there is always the chance that the graphics card is no good. And nothing but a return, and a new card will solve the problem.

Hello tainted feat,

Please download DriverSweeper:
Reboot into SafeMode and select the Nvidia drivers and PhysX. Select only those. Do not delete the chipset drivers. Reboot into normal mode and then go here to download drivers.

This should work. Good luck
