Problem with Nvidia Geforce 220 GT


I recently purchased a 220 GT ( specifically) and I've been getting random bouts of BSOD errors on startup. Sometimes my computer starts up successfully while other times I'm faced with an nv4_disp error.

I called up the tech support of Galaxy Technology and they told me to upgrade my power supply to 400w. I bought and installed a 430w power supply. The card worked great for a while but this morning I was faced with another BSOD nv4_disp error. I have a feeling that this could be driver related, but I have installed the most current drivers for the 220gt.

I called back the tech support and they now told me I had to have a 450w minimum despite it saying on every website saying that the 220 GT had a 300w minimum.

Help would be appreciated,

Windows XP 32bit
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4600 @ 2.40GHz
2.0 GB RAM
(I know it's terrible, but I will be upgrading in the near future)

  1. what brand is the PSU and no the GT220 doesn't require a 450 watt PSU

    if you get a good brand 400 W PSU you will be fine
  2. that is a great PSU

    it doesn't seem to be driver issues try rolling back the drivers
  3. Is it working now or did you RMA it? I RMA'd mine.
