I'm hoping I can get some help.
I've had this graphics card for a year now. I bought it bran new off of Ebay.
ATI GeCube Radeon 9250 256MB DDR PCI version
I needed it to play and create for a 3D game such as SIMS2. Recently I was seeing lots of scrambling on my monitor and it would get to where it would distort my screen tremedously.
I was told it was my monitor going out...the electric cogwheels or something to that effect. Source told me not to turn it on and off as much as
possible.SO I did as they said. Also before my monitor was doing this, I noticed my monitor would go to sleep all of the sudden and I didn't have it in hybernation mode.
Finally my monitor went out completely after I did a 3D test in DXDIAG. So I purchased another one. But when I hook my new monitor to my graphics card it goes to sleep ...nothing but a black screen.
To let you know that it's my card.I connected my PC to my son's bran new monitor and connected to my graphics card and it put his to sleep as well.
Is there something maybe I could do? Or could it be my computer config? I've got DX9 so that's not a problem I'm useing my graphics card the PC came with right now that's how I'm able to talk to you.
