if your games will, try removing one of the ram modules and try a game, what pc you have (pc3200, etc) your pc might not support it

does it connect to a 4 pin? then your card is one that requires the external (ps) power over pci or agp

your video card wasnt getting the power it needed so it shutdown under strain, like a car thats carburetor is tuned to lean. too much demand not enough fuel.

Yeah as what Anthony J says, that could of been the problem.

Since your video card is running under that much stress, it's gonna need a load of power.. and those 4pin connecters you connected gave it lots of power.
