Default PC Trouble

Hi,

My Computer keeps having an error when i start up a game. As soon as the game has loaded, the screen goes blank. I have switched the Graphics card with another one and it works fine. Does anyone know whether the problem is with M/B or witht the Graphics card?

By the way my PC has : *Expert Vision Radeon 9800(ATI Radeon 9800) [Supposed Problem]
*2 x 512mb RAM
* AsRock 775Dual-915GL M/B
*P4 775 HT 3.0ghz
*80 GB 7200 Seagate H/D
*Windows XP Home Edition

Thx if you can help me or tried to,
Heinrich

well, if you said that you have switched graphics cards and it worked fine, I would assume that is the problem. I would say you should just leave the other graphics card in that worked.

Get K-Lite MEGA Codec pack
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...Codec_Pack.htm

And when this is done, don't you worry no more about codec problems
