Just installed a GeForce 9600GT into my system, and it's causing the monitor to turn itself off, and then the PC freezes. We need to do a hard reboot. It only occurs when my son is on-line gaming. We never had this problem with previous Asus card.
Here's what we have:
Power supply: 650w by BFG
Sceptre X9W monitor
XP Media Center SP2
Intel Core 2 CPU 6400, 2.13 gHz
I did some research yesterday and was advised to:
--set BIOS display to PCI and disable onboard video (couldn't find it in my BIOS options)
--turn off Enable Write Combining
Thanks for your help guys!
Heres what we have done:
BIOS update for our Biostar T-Force 945-P
Installed new 650 Watt power
Used a driver cleaner to get rid of old Nvidia drivers
Monitor still freezes, followed by the computer freezing, requiring a reboot.
This only happens on FPS games such as Counter-Strike and Bf2. But it will not freeze on the RTS games such as Company of Heroes.
Any more ideas would be appreciated.
