How do you know it's the card? What does the error look like?
February 18, 2013 4:25:06 PM

When Windows boots up it checks for a solution and says its because of my graphics card!!!
February 18, 2013 4:27:06 PM

Did you completely uninstall your cards drivers and then reinstall the correct drivers at their website? That's the first thing I'd try.
February 18, 2013 4:43:12 PM

Yep -_-

can you give a link of the graphics card you bought from? What're your computer specs?

We are trying to. You didn't give much information there lol.. This is a helpful forum from what I can see and they are very knowledgeable if you don't make them guess xD.. Computers act weird when there is a problem so it could be any number of things. I even had viruses make my computer seem totally broken before.
Without information it is impossible for even the smartest person to help you.

how were you running your computer before the graphics card? it appears there is not on board graphics on the motherboard and according to intel's site, there is no integrated graphics.

When you plug the display onto your motherboard I/O, your games work perfectly fine, correct? And when you plug the display onto the graphics card I/O, your games start crashing, right?

hmmm, can you open up your computer and give the information about the power supply? I highly doubt it's a hardware issue seeing how you say the drivers are crashing but you can never be too certain.

a possibility could be that you have a faulty graphics card if reinstalling drivers doesn't fix it

Crashing games really do sound like something with the drivers or the physical card itself

See if you can get a replacement for the card from the manufacturer. If that fixes your problem, then that meant your current one is faulty or something went wrong with it.

Hopefully that will fix your problem but if that does not, then it points to either corrupt drivers, conflicting drivers, or some interfering software. Did you uninstall previous graphics drivers before you installed the current ones for your graphics card?

just curious but what game(s) are you trying to play?

Yea thats not gonna work!

Which country are do you live in? What's the manufacturer of your graphics card?

If that doesn't work, you could try and buy a new graphics card and plug that into your computer to see if it works fine. If it does, then your current graphics card probably died (which sounds strange since you've only had it for 2 months)

Other than the card is dead or the drivers are messed up, I can't think of any other probable issue except your power supply is not supplying enough power to the card (but your system should just shut down if that is the case).

Is the card properly seated into the pci-e slot?

It's been awhile since I said anything, but I found and fixed the problem, the graphics cards fan wasn't working so I removed the fan, and put a new one on it.
