Hey monkeydluffy

Monitor the temperatures of your video card, with either Everest, or ATI Tool. It may be overheating, like you said.

Try reinstalling the drivers, or get the latest one.

tkz! :D
I already did that, have catalyst 7.9 installed, i can´t see the temps on everest, think its my card that does not have sensor?
the ati tool you talk about is in the suite right? i only have the driver installed :P

gonna install the suite and check it out :P

Re: Graphic Card Problem
No, it's not in the suite. ATI Tool is a separate program, to monitor the temperature of your graphic card, as well as overclock.

Re: Graphic Card Problem
ok iīm on it...

do you think it could be temps? maybe even the cpu temps? because i think my cpu is too hot...its like 70 celsius right after i turn off a game...itīs a p4 3,2 with a stock cooler.

Re: Graphic Card Problem
70C?!!...That is another reason. You should be staying below 60C, on load.

Re: Graphic Card Problem
****...i dont understand, its the stock cooler and itīs clean... :S

and i cant find the temps of the graphic card on atitool :P

Re: Graphic Card Problem
Stock coolers usually aren't very good at cooling. But should be good enough, if you're not overclocking or anything.

You should either get an aftermarket thermal paste, like Arctic Cooling's MX-2. It's only like $6.

Or get some more case fans, to increase the airflow in the system.

Re: Graphic Card Problem
not good. xD
i just tried with my pc case open and still the temps are the same...could be processor problem?

Re: Graphic Card Problem
It's probably the airflow in your case. How many intake and exhaust fans, do you have in there?

Although the Pentium 4 processors, are known to run hot.

You should consider the suggestions, from my previous post.
