Monitor turns off pc freezes during game reboot fixes

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, Ive googled the **** out of this and Ive tried everything I cant think of. My problem is:

While my cousin plays The Sims 2 the monitor would turn off and the amber light would turn on. Now I saw this happen twice while playing. But the next day I left the pc logged on in the Sims 2 main menu and it stayed on the whole night until she started to play the next morning. Now today I was playing CS and it happened. Ive done: Updated bios, installed latest video drives, system restore. Im thinking about reformatting. This seems to be a common problem according to google but the forum threads all leave a dead end with no answers. Also the monitor comes back on after a reboot.

While downloading the BIOS from ASUS, I also saw something about the 9600 GT having problems with this mobo but it said the BIOS update would fix it... idk
(Googled: Monitor turns off pc freezes during game reboot fixes)

You have the Black Screen of Death problem. You probably got one the batch of 9600GT that have those problems. The only way to fix is to RMA.

did you really have to make a troll post?

problems like these can spring up in any graphics card
there is a small % chance that anyone will get a bad card from any brand ATI. or Nvidia , my friend got a bad ATI 4870, it would cause random artifacts, shut the screen off, overheat all the time, (even with the fan raised) (and it was a brand new card)

problems like these are not limited to 1 brand / model number of cards
its just unlucky that a person got a bad card
and you just RMA it and problem solved

the only argument you can make with ATI VS Nvidia is who has the best preforming card / drivers that's what makes them the best
