Most likely a thermal event issue with the GPU chip as the AGP card needs to be replaced.

It will be your call to have it replace or just purchase another AGP/PCI card which is cheaper nowadays or stick with the onboard instead. :thumbup2:

HI,jhayz,I am on the on board right now i would like to the big screen HDTV,but having trouble finding cabling to hook up to it.

Is there any relationship between the on board and screen size or is it is just a signal to the tv screen.

Another forum suggested replacing the capacitor only but unless you have done before it does not look that easy,thanks

Are you on HDMI or just VGA? Most likely VGA I presume... What TV brand is it?

HI,jhayz,it is a PANASONIC HDTV,it has (3)HDMI,(2)COMPONET,S-VIDEO and a y/p/b.

With this video card i was trying to download a GOOGLE earth program and got message that video card could not handle it.

It appears that my best bet would be getting a better card,thanks
