Graphics card issues.. on my computer, Need help..

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Okay ill start from the begining, Tuesday i went out and baught myself a Saphire 5670 512mb video card to replace my 4650, It worked amazingly untill wednesday when i turned my computer on, it was showing me a gray screen with vertical lines, After following more suggestions from the community here it stoped with the gray screen but then was freezing and showing red and green patches all over the screen while not allowing me to do anything, Everyone suggested Rma. I returned the card to the store where they tested it and said there was nothing at all wrong with the card yet they still replaced it and allowed me to upgrade to the Asus 5670 1GB card, So i installed it yesterday, and it was working well (not as well as the 512mb version though), however, upon startup today i load up to the Desktop page and then i Bsod, however switching back to my 4650 stops this problem from occuring. Does anyone know how i can fix this problem so that i can actually use my new graphics card instead of it sitting in a box? all the Drives are up to date, The only thing that i can tell thats differant when i turn the computer on is my rooms low night time temperature (how that would affect it though is beyond me)
any suggestions?

well i got a corsair tsx 750 watt for the gtx 465 which requires 550 minimum. Check the recommended psu wattage for your gpu and see if your psu meets that.

recomended power for the card is 400, my psu is some crappy 500W, However, why would it work one day, but not the next?

also, i have only one express slot on my motherboard.

i cant tell you why it works one day and stops the next but it could be related to your psu. 500w should be enough for the 400w but you never know if your other components are drawing more than you expected resulting in a crash of some sort. For example if you cpu and gpu happen to fully load at the same time 500w might become insufficient
