  1. Your driver would seem to be the immediate issue there,
    whats the problem finding the driver online?
    although http://www.overclock.net/nvidia-drivers-overclocking-software/887785-gts-450-driver-screw-up.html seems to indicate there are driver issues with those cards
    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
    might help though
    and what brand is the power supply?
    Moto
  2. under load your gpu pulls 219w. under idle its 105. this is for the standard card. does not show the power draw for the OC model.

    This could be a power problem but unlikely if it happens when playing games and surfing the net.

    I would try getting updated drivers off the net. If that does not work the PSU would be my next guess.
  3. thnx moto

    i am trying to get latest driver

    could u suggest the site for downloading driver
  5. Please go to your uninstaller and uninstall your java
    Then run this tool
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/javara/files/javara/JavaRa/JavaRa.zip/download?_test=goal

    Run it and let it remove the left overs.

    Then go to here
    http://filehippo.com/download_jre_32/

    Download the latest version and install it. reboot your pc and give it a test
  6. is my power supply enough

    can low powersupply permanently damage the graphic card??????????/
  7. can u tell me the latest driver version for my graphic card
  8. just do that first I suggested.
  9. i dont knw much abut this stuff
    but why to uninstall java
  10. Because you drivers, games and your web browser make use of Java. There have been a lot of java fixes the last few months and when you update java you need to uninstall your older versions first otherwise like gpu drivers it can cause problems
  11. ok thnx

    i will do it
  12. I linked the nvidia driver site in my first reply dude, its the second link,

  14. reviews on your card seem positive so I reckon its ok,
    low power to a card would just manifest by the kind of problems your experienceing, but before you splash out on a new psu (as stated yours seems fine for the draw required) check the drivers
    it wouldn't damage the card as far as I'm aware, just cause it to perform erroneously

  15. i installed windows again (win 7) , installed leatest driver frm net

    still my screen blinks
  16. Please, first fix the problem with your keyboard. Your posts are hard to read.

    Obvious questions first: is your video cable properly connected? Is your monitor power cable properly connected? Are all the connectors within your PC properly connected?
  17. yep all connectors are properly connected
