Graphics cards are designed to allow you to change both the resolution and refresh rate so don`t let anyone tell you the card died because you did this.
That happened when my brother was playing call of duty 4 and wanted to change the graphic resolution and refresh rate...He did that many times
What size resolution was your brother trying to achieve? The maximum the card can do is 2560 x 1600 so unless you were trying to go over this you would have no issues unless something else was wrong namely a failing or poor quality PSU, not enough system memory, a CPU that is not fast enough for the game, incorrectly connected or loose monitor lead, the settings on the monitor itself,the incorrect drivers or a faulty GFX card.
The PSU is the 1st thing that needs checking out read Digerati`s canned text on PSUs at the attached link and you will understand why, post #2 is the only thing I am bringing to your attention

I do only mean try the card once, if it is not functioning correctly shut down and wait until you get the new PSU.
Also even if you get exactly the same replacement GFX card I suggest uninstalling the previous drivers and starting the whole installation procedure from the beginning.
Good luck and we will wait for you to post back.

If you do not get a full and proper screen.
ok...One question what do you mean here??if the resolution is still not correct
Back in post #1 you said;
You should be able to see a full screen, even if it means adjusting the GFX card
(The screen was larger than the monitor and he could see half the screen)
and monitor resolutions in order to be able to do so.

Also can you post your MB details, make, model and any rev number, look by the CPU, between the PCI slots and around the edge of the MB for this information.
What is the make and model number of your monitor?

Can't give you more specific cause my pc is in the service....He told me that he will communicate with me tomorrow to tell me if sth wrong.....He believes that is or MB or PSU

Tell then that the Viewsonic VA1916w does not have a "source option", simply because it only has a single video input port.
... he told me that i must press a button called source on the monitor...But i can't find it ...
... i can't find it i press buttons and nothing happens
More info: http://www.viewsonic...cts/va1916w.htm
The manual tells you how to unlock the monitor's buttons.
