A few days ago, I decided to upgrade from an old MX 4000 series 128mb nvidia card to a bit more recent geforce 7600 GS 512mb nvidia card. I bought the piece, along with a 500GB external western Digital. I installed them both, but I got problems. The computer kept freezing, and the card could no longer support my television in it's S-video feature. I reckoned (because I've heard warning about the power) that the PSU was the problem. So I got a 680W PSU with 26A on it's +12v rail. Yet, the problems persisted. I tried using the drivers that came with the piece, same problem as when I deleted those and installed a more updated driver from the company's website. The pc seems to freeze whenever it involves something to do with the card, so I reckon it's the problem. What should I do?

Pentium 4 CPU, 3.40 Ghz
1.00 GB of RAM.
3 external drives
DVD Burner
Old modem card
680W new Power supply.

What pertinent errors are reflected in Event Viewer?

Something happened while I was playing with the settings.
I set the anti-aliasing and aniseptropic filter on the card to 4X and the had it work on performance more than quality
It doesn't freeze, anyone know what I did?

Worth reading, IMO: http://blog.opsan.com/archive/2005/04/10/379.aspx AND http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet...ders-error.aspx

Since the only pointers that I can decipher point to MSN Messenger/Windows Live Messenger...I think I'd uninstall that (presuming possible corruption) and reinstall it.

Wait, I don't understand how any of this has to do with my graphics card.

Your graphics card isn't causing the error message you displayed...which appears to be closely associated with your system freezing.

If it isn't, then how come the problems only started when I installed it?

OK, have it your way :thumbsup:.

I can't give you an explanation as to why your new graphics card would cause an error in the programs/modules mentioned in your Event Viewer data relative to your freezing. I just go by the data which you've presented.

The test would be: uninstalling/reinstalling the program mentioned...clears the problem. Or maybe just uninstalling. In any case, if the problem continues without the referenced program...the links indicating what is happening...are wrong and you should continue to troubleshoot.

Apparent causality...with computers...is sometimes incorrect in assuming that a visible change is responsible for impacts which normally occur invisibly. Corruption normally happens invisibly and that's what my guess is.

Okay, I really do appreciate your advice. I've uninstalled Live Messenger and Installed a newer version. I will test this and let you know of the results as soon as possible.
Just hang in there!
Oh wait, you're supposed to be saying that to me.

When you installed your new card, did you remove your older video card card drivers.

I decided to test out Louis's theory and I played Lost Planet. It worked perfectly, with beautiful graphics, no lagging or anything. 10 minutes into the game, I got a message from the game telling me something about the system's requirements not meetings some standard or something, I was using someone else's graphics settings (as it was a saved file I downloaded) so when I rolled to default settings in obedience to this message, My PC froze again. I quickly went to Event viewer during this time and couldn't find much to do with Msnmsngr. Let me show you what I found in the system's event log.

To Crytodan:
Yes, i did and I installed the latest ones. even though I've been hearing that they might not be that good. My computer still froze like crap. So I switched back to my old one, my computer freezes less with these installed.

I think you should go post in the Am I Infected? Forum.
