You hit the monitor yet blame it on the card? Sounds like the monitor. What happens when you put your old card back in?

Well when i put the old card back in it seems to be alright. I never had the problem on the old card hence why im thinking its the new card. What would cause the problem with my new graphics card. Ive got a 400w powersupply which it says is needed so im pretty confused?

Thanks

BTW- ive had the monitor for a good 4-5 years now

i would say try drivers first...but if you HIT your monitor and it works, ehhhh...i'd have to say the monitor was getting ready to kick the bucket.

do you have to hit the monitor to make it work on the old card?
And nag is right, try the newest drivers first...not from the cd.
and pls sstop abusing your monitor, or any hardware.

Lol ive updated all the drivers and yet it persists. If it continues my monitor will continue to be abused most certainly.
