Hello again
It has been a long time since my last post :help:
You probably remember my GFX-Card problem :blink: http://www.geekstogo...mp;#entry609693

Now this is even more frustrating than ever...

Today I experienced something odd:

I fired up Oblivion (my fav game btw ^^), loaded my save game and then...

Well, the performance got very sloppy, after 5 seconds, the screen went black with a wierd noise coming from the computer (maybe its the graphics ventilator, or the CPU, or the HD, or the PSU - but it sounds like HD to me...)

I can make a Vid of the problem with my moblile phone and upload it for you...

The origin of my problem is probably (as you might guess :whistling: ) the graphics...
If this would be true, I could demand a refund from my hardware supplier...
All drivers are new

You can find my specs in my previous posts

Help is greatly appreciated

I know this might sound obvious but have you checked all connectors are properly connected? Also, in the bios is it set to AGP for the graphics card and not PCI? I had a problem like this with my old computer and it turned out it was set to PCI.

Okay, I'm going to check the BIOS now.
What do you mean with connectors?

BTW: Have you watched my vid? :whistling:

By connectors I mean the wires connecting the graphics card to the motherboard.

Graphics cards attach to a motherboard using an slot they arent wired, i think you mean check the power supply cable if it needs one and check its connect to the monitor properly.

Good news folks!!

I benchmarked my geforce 6600 gt with 3dmark05 and it had no problems, no lock ups etc.
So I came to a new conclusion:
The sound cards drivers are outdated or corrupt.
Why? Because 3dmark05 runs without sound and it didn't crash.
I am going to update my sound drivers and keep you informed. :whistling:
