ASUS P8Z68 1155 Motherboard
1TB Sata 2 HDD
Powercolour ATI HD6950 With Peltier Cooler ( Standard ) Graphics Card
OCZ 600Watt PSU



Problems Are . I Installed All The Motherboard And CPu / Memory Etc Into the case and then put the graphics card in . and installed Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 Fine And Then Installed All The Up to Date Drivers - And Then Installed Call Of Duty 4 . And After a few seconds of playing . i would loose display and the card would power down ... but can still hear the game . running or sumtimes the pc will freeze But After A While PC Started Running Slow So I Put My Old Card 8800GT 512mb Back in my pc and booted fine games was fine .... so i decided to put the old card back in ... and not it wont even display anything . it will boot up into windows cause i can hear the loggon sound .plus i tried it on my dads pc with a 850watt PSU ( Serious Gaming PC ) and its the same on his ... and hes running a hd 6950 himself ... so i no his pc can take 1 ...

Default Re: Graphics Card Trouble

have you tried resetting the CMOS?
You can also reseat your GPU cooler? Sounds like your card is overheating and shutting down
RMA it if you can or take it back and get a new one?

That sucks...

Then I would try reseating the HS. or buying an after market cooler for it.
