Well about 2 weeks ago I bought the above graphics card, had some trouble fitting it into the case properly but it did work ok. Today I was playing Enemy Terretory: Quake Wars, and I got an error saying that the game crashed because of a driver problem, which it said had been successfully repaired. I then get a blue screen of death with lots of text on it which I didn't have time to read. My system then started to reboot. But I got a bluescreen with teh error "*** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x0001000A, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

So I turned it off and on again. Now the monitor didn't seem to detect that the computer was switched on. I tried turning it on a number more times, with no resaults. I pressed the graphics card in more, and left it a while. Turned it on again and it worked fine. I decided to install the latest driver sofware again in case ti would help. It asked me to reboot. I did, and then I got the monitor not detecting the computer was on again. I trid it a few more times, one time I got an extremely loud beeping size comming form teh computer I think this was because the power supply connectors weren't in propoerly (so I pushed them in more nad havn't had that again), and I got another blue screen of death. I left it a while, turned it on again and it worked.

After that it randomly worked and didn't work, more often than not didn't. Now it won't work at all .

Any idea what the problem is?
