When the screen goes blank go up close to the screen and look very closely to see if you can still see the faint image.
If doing the above gives a negative then it will be a GPU problem.
I did this and didn't see any images, just a blank/black screen.
I tried everything everyone has told me to do, same problem. One thing I keep forgetting to mention is that when my screen goes black, I have to do 2 hard boots before I can get to the Vista sign on screen.
Is it time to cook my card?
Can anyone suggest a new card for me?
I was ready to cook my card and then I had a thought. I was having imcompatibilites problems with IE8 and Adobe Flash so I thought I would update my card and mobo drivers one more time. I think it is fixed! I've been playing LOTRO for over a half hour on high settings and no blackouts!!!
