Im kinda new here so i'll introduce myself 1st.
My real name is Ryan
Im 17 and im nearly finished my A Levels (yey)
I know a few things about computers but not nearly as much as alot of you on here seem to know. Although i can put a computer together in about 30 mins
I own 3 computers in this house, my main one's specs are in my signature, one of which i put together myself and one is 7 years old
Thats a little about me. I hope that i will like it here and that you dont find me too annoying
Ok, now the help i need is with my Graphics card (not really sure if it is the gfx card)
I got my Geforce FX 5600 sometime before christmas. I put it into the computer without a hitch. Went on games and there was no problems.
Then, 3-4 weeks after i bought it, something started to happen. I would go on Command and Conquer Generals, and when im in the game, the screen just goes black and it says ''No Signal'', then switches off. I can heard everything else running fine and i even get the sound from the game still. This is all random and it is not in the same place or same level e.t.c.
At first i thought it could be the power supply, so i changed the one i had (crappy 200 watt that came with the computer) to a 400 watt Pentium 4 power supply but it still happens.
This really has me stumped. Its been suggested that it might be a compatability issue between the card and the monitor (Plug and Play) but also someone said i could have a faulty AGP slot. If it is a faulty slot, that will be sorted in 2 weeks when i get my new mobo, but i was just wondering if any of you smart people here could shed some light as to why this is happening
Thanks in advance
