Hi everyone,
I have a geforce 9600gt card when I start a game the computer shuts down I have to take out my power cord then re plug it to get it working again, the 9600GT uses a 4pin power connection for extra power to the card, can this be a psu problem? my psu is a 400watt 26 amps on a 12v. rail. computer works well when I take out the card and use the onboard Intel Graphic Media Accelerator, and play games like 18 wheels steel American long haul, need your help friends.

It could be that the graphics card is bad.

It also could be that the heat sink isnt settled properly.

make sure you have the latest graphics drivers.

I tried your solution, it does'nt work ASHISH65, I should also say that the computer works fine surfing the net and other things but whenever I tried to play games, a few seconds into the game the computer shutdown then restarted Auto. I was told by a friend that my psu cannot handle the card, what do you think?

Well, the 9600GT as a minimum recomended power supply requirement of 400w.

I'm not totally sure if its the power supply, but it could be.

hmm yes i think it is psu issue,when you play games gpu loads more power,but psu is not able to give that power to gpu which results in shutdown or crashes
