    Try updating the drivers first.
    Make sure the card has enough cooling - see that the fan (if any) is running and that the heatsink isn't clogged by dust and suchlike. Remove the PCI slot cover right below the video card to get some better airflow there.

    I`m definitely no expert when it comes to video card issues.

    I would agree with Nodsu that maybe overheating is the cause. The only other thing I can think of is possibly it`s a psu problem. I.E faulty or underpowered.

    Can you give us your full system specs, including what video card and psu you have?

    What brand it is, how many watts it is and how many amps it puts out on the 12volt rail? You can find the psu info on the psu label.

    Regards Howard :)

    Can you please reattach as a .txt file? This is because .doc files can carry viruses etc.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you click on the first link in my signature, you will see how to find your system specs etc.

    I really need that psu(power supply) info. If you open your case and look on the psu label, you should be able to find the info I need.

    Regards Howard :)

    this the motherboard details

    It would help us to help you, if all new members would fill in their system specs(specifications) in their user profiles.

    You can do this by clicking on the user profile link at the top of any page and selecting edit profile.

    Specs we need to know are as follows.

    Mobo(motherboard) make and model.

    CPU(central processing unit) make and model"

    this is the page i get; i try to open the first link and i get a web site of"hp"

    what m i doing wrong here?

    thanks

    ok ok got it!!! downloadin software now!!!

    That`s just fine and dandy, but I still need your PSU details. The only way you`re going to get them, is to open your case and look at the information on the psu label.

    Regards Howard :)

    sorry howard i didnt see the second page there... taking the risk of you throwing a computer on my head, do you mean for me to just open the computer and giving you the brandname and detailes written on the psu?

    cheers

    Exactly lol.

    While you`ve got the case open, make sure your computer isn`t dusty, especially on the fans heatsinks etc. Try aiming a deskfan into the case and see if you can enable hardware acceleration. If you can, then probably it`s an overheating issue.

    Regards Howard :)
