Problem with video card 2012-07-02 09:17:20 Reply

So randomly my video card stops working. I plug my monitor into the video card slot and it just says "no signal" on a black screen, then shuts off. But my integrated card allows use of my monitor... but the screen is constantly glitching up whenever there is any major movement making it near impossible to do anything. I think last time this happened I was about to do something on the start up screen like press F8 and go fuck around in the options for something but I don't remember. Can anyone here help?

Also, monitor is AOC flatscreen and the video card is NVIDIA. Also under that on the device manager there is one called "Standard VBA graphics adaptor" When I click on it it says....

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."

Im stumped :(

Update your drivers on the NVIDIA website. That might fix the problem.

How much RAM do you have?

Look up their tech support phone number and give them a call. Generally I find that if a glitch has happened to me it has happened to many people multiple times.

If drivers, or in this case, the software is not the problem. You might want to check out the hardware, even though I think it's most likely your video card has just failed you for the last time.

Better hope you went with a brand like EVGA(I don't know their warranty policy but I've heard its pretty good) or Gigabyte(3 yr warranty)
