Do you honestly think you deserve any help with a user name like that?

******* right I DO!

do you even realize the hell i have been threw for 2 weeks over this crap card!

I payed a lot of money for it an i expect it to work in 2 years\


Your not going to try to help me because i say nvidia pisses me off?

Hmm ok, im only stating the truth, THEY PISS ME OFF

They offer NO SUPPORT, they offer nothing!

But hey, what can i expect from a person like you who doesnt need to deal with a problem like this because when it happens to you you can run out and buy a new $500 video card

Word of advice

Never make decisions when you are angry

Now on the card thing.

Check your bios settings, AGP aperture to 128mb and fastwrites disabled. Check also your ram timings.

Check if the fan is working.

maybe the card is overheating, you can underclock it with rivatuner or coolbits. Lower to the least possible speed and try some games.

Its card made by a AiB and not by NVIDIA. So you should really be angry / vent your fustrations on the AIB who made the card. Ask for RMA or see if you still have a valid waranty

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

I still think this is flamebait. I won't bite.

On the given issue, if the card was working fine and started freezing out of the blue, there's something wrong with your hardware. Try another card if you have a spare one lying around. Or take that card to a friend and test it on their PC. If the problem is indeed the video card, no amount of reinstalling and formatting will fix it.

He hasn't replied in days. well.... have u tested the card in another system?.... have u tried another card in ur system?
