ok so here i am sitting at my friends computer. It works just fine when the vga is being used. He say's there is something wrong. so im like ok...what? he then tells me that when you plug in the DVI cord and try to use that you get problems. i was a bit lost but i hooked it up and now about every 20 seconds or so, the screen goes completely black, the power indicator light stays the same color, but the screen goes black. i can still do everything with the computer so all of the other parts work fine. So first thing i tried doing is uninstalling the driver. so now thats done, its still happening. Now my questions is...what's going on? is maybe the card not recieving enough power? I'm going to open up the computer and check it out to make sure everything is plugged in right, but this is confusing me. ill check back after i check out the inside, thanks for the help in advance.
