  1. Hey there!

    So here's the thing, yesterday i sat and played som LoL with a friend, and my computer stands under the table so i put my feet on it. I started to wiggle the comp a bit when suddenly the screen started to go yellow-back 2normal-yellow-back again, and then just go black and my screen says something similar like "function unavailable". The card works just fine during the bootup, but as soon as windows is done loading, the screen turns black and i get that goddamned message.

    The card in question is a nvidia geforce 9600 GSO
    And the motherboard is a ASUS M2N68-CM

    At the moment i have to run on the motherboards integrated geforce 7050pv, and that aint fun..

    "I started to wiggle the comp a bit when suddenly the screen started to go yellow-back 2normal-yellow-back again"...

    This is a sign that the monitor connector to the computer is loose. It's never a good idea to use a computer for a footrest especially when the computer is running. It is possible that the loose monitor connector damaged the nvidia geforce 9600 GSO video card
