Hi i just recently bought the geforce 9500 gt for my pc. I had the card for 3 days until the problem occured. I was in the middle of playing world of warcraft and i alt+tabbed out so that i could open another program. After tabbing the screen when black and i couldnt get any response for 1-2 minutes. I figured it was a typical freeze up so i manually reset the computer but got NOTHING on startup just a black screen and a series of timed beeps from the computer that are spread out through even intervals apart. Thought the comp over heated so i let it sit for a while, nothing. Unplugged all cables and power supplies then plugged everything back in, nothing again. Then i unplugged all cables and power supplies and re-attatched all memory and the video card, still nothing =[. Figured it might be the monitor so i tried another monitor but still got the same black screen effect. Then i thought, god forbid, maybe the video card was messed up so i tried plugging the video cables directy to the mother board, and still got nothing. Im hoping this is possibly a PSU or mobo issue because im replacing these at the end of the week, and not the new video card i just got. Ran like a dream until i black screened so i figured i was putting too much pressure on the card and maybe shorted something out on the mobo and/or video card.
ASUS M2A-VM mobo with and AMD athlon 2.4 or odd something ghz
3024 MB ddr2 RAM
Windows XP 32-Bit
Nvidia Geforce 9500gt
Please help! I was very happy the past few days after upgrading to your card from integrated video, any help you can give would be amazing D=.
