few days ago, I bought an ATI video card x1650 AGP 8x 512ddr2 and I have a problem:
Every time when I play a game that Crysis, Turok and other my monitor is turning off or my computer is restarting after 2-3-5-10 minutes in game. Usualy first is blocking the game, then my monitor is turning off, then i can hear sounds in game and every command works (shoot, walk, swim, jump) in game, but my monitor is off. I can solve that only restarting the computer.
I dont have any overclocks on my computer. Really i had before but i see, my problem is bigger, that i cant play games like World of warcraft and underground 2 ... Anyway, to play fine, i had to set minimum details on all games who don't require a higher system, and no overclocks. The turning off monitor problem i had already on my old video place Nvidia 6200, but there all works fine, only when i'm trying to set Frequency on monitor in game higher that 85Hz or resolution higher that 1600x1200 on 60Hz, or higher that 1024x768 on 85Hz. But in game i had no problems. Now i have and i must solve, i hope, someone had same problem and solved or know the situation, and comes with an answer
