Video Card Frezzes

Postby tw0p00ps » Mon Nov 01, 2010 11:37 am

Ok, my video card (Geforce 8600 Gt) crashes verytime I open World of Warcraft, as soon as the login screen opens it frezzes and the only thing i can do is restart the machine. Ive noticed that it started to happen when watching normal avi. files. Ive installed the new drivers and unistalled and installed, with no luck. Ive also come to notice that my cd reader/writer is not reading and writing but otherwise seems to be running. Device manager reports no problems with these either. Could this be a power supply problem? (was replaced about 6 mths ago to a Cooler Master 500).The whole machine was only built in Dec 08. Im at a total loss nothing i can think of works... Mabie its time to upgrade to Win. 7 from Xp, shove some more ram into'er and get a new Vid card(and suggestions?) then be done with it.. Mother board is a ASUS P5K SE/EPU.

Hi i have come across this problem quite a lot. Often it is just the card is over clocked. Turn down settings. Removing and reinstalling the card could also be another solution.

Maybe your card has burned out.
