The card has been working fine since I got my computer, which I ordered with the card, which is been about 7 months ago. Recently the card has began letting me down. A few weeks ago, while playing Team Fortress 2, my TV turned off and my speakers started stuttering. I had to force a shutdown.
I turned it back on, it went past the boot logo, tried to load Windows 7 for a few seconds, then the monitor went to a blue screen displaying "NO SIGNAL!" I left it off for awhile because I assumed the video card was overheated. This appeared to work for a bit.
I tried playing Team Fortress 2 again and played for about 20 minutes, then it happened again. "NO SIGNAL!" So I took the card out of the computer slot and placed it back in. tn worked for a bit longer, except this time, while trying to watch something on Hulu, it went to no signal again.
I turned it off and back on again. All the fans are spinning, everything powers up, my computer makes the usual POST beep noise.
The computer runs fine without the video card, but I really don't think I can put up with this onboard card, which is unable to even play a game from 11 years ago. I got this computer as a gaming computer and recently, no gaming has been done on this thing. I don't have a way to test the card, so I'm unsure just what the problem is.
If anybody has any suggestions it would be gladly appreciated. Also, my apologies for the long post, I just wanted to make sure I had everything covered so maybe I can get a quicker answer. I tried posting over at Afterdawn but three weeks later nobody has posted anything, hopefully somebody has some suggestions here.
