Gday all
today my 9700pro started flashing in games,tried a driver update with no
improvment,ran dxdiag and did all the video tests ,all worked but a touch of
flashing.
Tried running 3dmark 2001 which had the same flashing as games.It works fine
for web browsing and general stuff just when using its 3d type apps it seems
to have probs.
any ideas anyone????I'd like to keep it while they r still a good performing
vid card.


specs
amd 2500xp
9700pro 128mb
msi kt3 ultra m/b
768 mb ram
onboard sound

thanks in advance
Staf

I just opened the case and felt the temperature of the card when it was
having problems. In my case the card was crashing to the desktop. The
card was almost too hot to touch. Adding a slot cooler fan fixed the
problem and I have had no problems with the card for over two years.

I'd reccomend the Artic Cooling VGA silencer(rev.1 fits onto a Radeon
9700PRO).I have it on my 9700PRO and I'm thrilled,it's very quiet(has 2
modes of work),it's definitely the best cooler for OCing and it's also
pretty cheap(20-25$).
Check the temp in the rest of your case and if its too hot add some case
fans(I have 2 Silentcats and a Coolermaster with a temp. sensor).

I just used a slot cooler fan when I had this problem. Much simpler,
plus I didn't have to worry about damaging or voiding the warranty on my
new $400 video card.

I just picked one up at a local computer store. They fit into the space
under the video card and connect to a hard drive power connector.
Cyberguys.com has one called a System Exhaust Blower at

for $11.81 US.
