View Full Version : Geforce 7800GT doing weird

03-29-06, 05:11 AM
Well i'll explain my problem, i bought an XFX Geforce 7800GT a couple of weeks ago, i replaced my Ati X850XT with the 7800GT.
Everything runned smoothly but after a couple of days my screen getting black and said it goes on standby.
I reinstalled Windows Xp a couple of times an tryed the best drivers but that didnt help either.
I have an Enermax 480W PSU, and i dont think thats the problem.
My X850XT doesnt have that problem if i replaced him for the 7800GT.
I took it back to the store and they tested the card but they said the card was fine but i still have the problem.
I hope you guys can help me.

In WoW it happens just random.

What resolutions are you running at/what monitor are you using? It might be that you're trying to run 1280x960 on a 1280x1024 monitor without specifying 1280x960 as a custom resolution, this has happened to me a few times.

Well i have an Benq FP937s+ 19 Inch, running it on 1280x1024 75hz.
I play games to on this resolution.
Btw my sound keeps repeating to if i get an black screen.

have you checked the drivers? update windows, your IDE drivers, video drivers, basically make sure everything is up to date 100%, that takes away possibilities, because what you're describing right now, to me seems like a device driver error, i've had errors where it says "device stuck in infinite loop" and i have to restart to get it to work, new drivers fixed it
