:thumbsup: Hellow there... I'm running a Invidia e-GeForce 7600 GT video card in my other computer and my frame rate slows
down and then freezes up ( this happends on DirectX and OpenGL settings ). I,d tried every adjustment that I could think of,
I downloaded the latest drivers, and installed ,I used the Invidia control panel and still not much improvement.
I was reading the system requirement list on the box and one item was Minimum system power is 400 Watts,
I have a 300 Watt power supply in my PC. Could that have something to do with my problem????
Any advice will be helpful thank you. BOB

How old is the card? Did you just buy it? If so, return it to the store and get a new one.

You said you have all the recent drivers installed, so that is good, but have you made any changes or left all settings default?

Have you contacted nVidia tech support?

Oh and nVidia is spelled with only two I's. :thumbsup:

Not having a big enough power supply can cause a lot of problems with your video. Here is a link to find out how much power you should have for your system.

POWER SUPPLY CALCULATOR

If you decide to buy a new power supply, don't go cheap if you can afford to. Some good names are Antec, Thermaltake, PC Power. There are others, but I can't remember, some I've heard recommended but don't know about. :thumbsup:

Antec makes good stuff at a good price
