Problems with Nvidia GT240

Hi,

I have just bought Nvidia GT240 1GB DDR3 and am facing some problems with it.


1. My Games get hang in middle and i have to restart them. For eg- GTA San Andreas
2. I loose the audio of the games while playing.
3. Sometimes my screen goes all yellow and games get stuck in middle.
4. I tried playing GTA4 with this card and the game was moving really slow.

Please help me as it seems to me that i wasted my money on this card. This was the best card i could afford and chose this after doing research on your site.

My system configuration is:

Dual Core 2.4 gz
2 GB RAM
400W i ball power supply.

Hoping for a reply. Thanks

  1. What is you monitor resolution? Why didn't you get the DDR5 version?
  2. Resolution in 1280 X 1024. DDR5 was going out of my budget plus i was a little concerned about my power supply.
  3. Well, it could be your processor? What's name of it? Change your resolution to 1024*768 and see if it gets any better. If not - it's a CPU bottleneck. Are you using XP or 7? If 7, I would recommend another 2GB of RAM.
  4. 1. Try new drivers
    2. Check the temps
    3. GTA4 is a slide show 'cause of the CPU and the low amount of RAM. Have you tried any patches for GTA4?
  5. I am using Win 7 and have updated my driver. I also formatted my system once.

    The problem is not game specific. I also face this for low end games lika GTA San Andreas.
  6. Does it happen in other games as well?

    Have you checked the temps?
  8. What was the performance when you lowered the resolution to 1024*768? Did it get better or was it the same?
  9. I have cleared all my temps and checked for 1024*768. Problem still exist.
  10. For a start your PSU is a POS. Get rid of it and get a decent one. GTA4 with that card will run slow. you will need to turn the details down quite a lot. GTA4 is also very CPU dependant. Without a fast CPU it runs like poop.
  11. Thanks for the reply.

    I am not very much concerned about the performance on GTA4, but is there something i can do to overcome the problems that i face for low end games like call of duty - world at war, GTA san andreas etc ?

    These games get hang very often in middle and the sound gets lost too.
