Default GFORCE FX 5700 Ultra Problem

My machine looses video signal after being on for about 5 minutes (not playing games). If I turn the monitor off and then back on signal is not returned. Sometimes the machine reboots. This is really driving me nuts. I have to shut everything down to get it working again.

I have a Samsung 191T monitor, gForce 5700 FX Ultra card and Abit IC7-G motherboard.

I reinstalled the video card drivers , but I'm thinking I didn't uninstall them first.

I wondering if I need to upgrade the motherboard bios. I'm not a hardware person so I'm not sure how to properly go about determine what is wrong. I have access to another video card so I'll give that a try.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

is your card securely plugged into the slot?

Your suggestion seems to have fixed my problem, at least it has remained up and running for move than 5 minutes.

Curiously, at boot time my computer does not display bios info. By the time anything is displayed the diagnostics are well into other tests.

Thanks again.
