Whenever i roll a full screen game the monitors shut off(no Source ext) and inevitably force me to restart my computer to regain control of it. I recently updated the drivers off of the nvidea website to no avail.
Hopefully it's not the cards, Granted they are old..5 years to be exact.but here are some specs.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core processor 4600+
2.41 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.
Motherboard: M2N32 Deluxe SLi Edition
Graphics cards: 2x Nvidea geforce 7800 SLied.
Harddrive: Seagate Barricuda 7200 500 gigs, sata
Now i got hit with a virus previously that boned me hard and i did my first reformat on this system in nearly 3 years. Previous of that reformat i was hit with all different types of BSOD, 3 oh which being...
All of which are relating to Memory/Ram, Now after the reformat I've had no such problems with those BSOD, so im figuring they were just bad drivers.
Now my question is, is the reason why i am unable to play full screen games because of drivers? Or is my Graphics cards finally down for the count? I do use duel monitors and as stupid as this question may be. During duel monitor phase i am unable to use the SLI function thus possibly only forcing my CPU to put pressure on one card? If so, would swapping one of my cards in for the other maybe solve said problem if it's a hardware issue?
Much appreciated, and glad to be back!
