  1. try unplug the card clean it and reinstall it, it could be heat problems....

    u could try check the temp using stressing software (heaven / kombustor / furmark / etc), see if it getting too hot...
  2. Hey, i have cleaned it and tried again and nope still does not work.
    This has been going on for about a month now
  3. Sounds like the card just went bad? Is it still under warranty?
