emm how do i put this, bought a factory built pc a while ago well in feb 2009, and at first i fobbed it off as it only affected a few games and I said it was my monitor in my mind, then I tried it on 2 other monitors , the problem of the monitor shutting off and the only way to return to normal is to force a reboot, i knew it wasn't my monitor then so took it to a friend who is tech savvy, he said to back up the data and install win xp in case of it being a corrupt OS however when i was moving it i found it only has a 250 watt power supply unit and nvidia says the 9600 requires a 400 watt minimum so what's the cause ? OS or Psu please tell me Psu as i don't want to nuke the hard drive

Welcome to the forums!

You need to upgrade your power supply in order to use that card.

Look at the label on the power supply and tell us how many amps you have on the 12v rails.
