If you look at the history of my posts, you'll see a long and arduous battle against unrelenting oddities. This here is my final trial, in the quest that is to build my first <gaming> rig. A few days ago, I was running Oblivion with the above mentioned video card and a 680w power supply and a beta driver ( Because of Windows XP 64-bit... ) when out of nowhere, the screen flipped and went blank. Two seconds after, the "No input" message appeared on the monitor. Everything else was fine, I had simply lost video. I had to go to work, so I unplugged the computer and left. 12 hours later... I returned, powered on and nothing seemed the matter. I shut down and decided not to run any more video games until I'd resolved all of my previous issues I'd believed to be, at the time, the root of the burn out. Earlier today, however, I was formatting a drive on my computer, now running standard up to date drivers on the 32bit Windows XP Pro, when I stepped away only to return to the "No input" screen again. The computer was still running, everything else seeme unaffected. I've only owned this video card for 3 weeks. Should I have burned it out, what should I do? I purchased it, along with everything else from Newegg.com. Any suggestions on what it might be, or what I should do from here?
