  4. i have a p cable plug in the video card,there is also a 2 prong cable attached to the p4 cable. does that plug into something. also my power supply is 600 watts.
  5. i get a cear pic for a few minutes then it goes all fuzzy or scrambly.getting closer.
  6. i have the video card connected to motherboard,then there is a p4 6 prong cable hooked up to the end of the video card. thats it.like i said i reboot and system comes up clear on tv for about 5 or so mins then freezes up or goes all fuzzy.

    ^I totally agree "if" the BIOS allows it.

    If not then open the Device Manager, right-click {on-board GPU} select Disable, and restart.

    Q - What ASUS MOBO?

    BTW - I assume that your monitor is connected to the "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT" and not the on-board GPU...
  8. i did go into bios and disabled onboard i have pci-express video card working but only for about five minutes then it freezes or gets all fuzzy.
  9. The 'reason' I asked which ASUS MOBO is to 'see' if it has another PCIe slot. If not then 'if' you have another PC test the nVidia GPU in it.

    I assume that you have connected the 6-pin power connector to the PSU??!!
  10. ya it only s one pci-e slot and yes the 6 pin power connecter is connected.and no i dont have another pc to test it in but im going to try and see if any friends have one.if not buy another pci-e card.thanks for your help.
  11. Q - I you use the on-board GPU does everything run??

    Also, if the GPU fails on anther MOBO then you'll know it's the GPU. To rule-out any conflicts run MSCONFIG and select Diagnostic.
  12. whats gpu and mobo,im a newbie sorry...
  13. GPU = Graphic Processing Unit {Video Card}
    MOBO = Motherboard
  14. everything seems to be working fine right now ,internet,updates,protection software,etc...i am going to leave it on for awhile see what happens.post back
    tomorrow.thanks again.
  15. Cool - let us know! Good Luck! :sol:
  16. ya alls good today so far thanks for everybodys help,what a great site,cheers.
