Radeon 9600 Pro Issue

  1. Just installed my new Radeon 9600 Pro.

    Heres my specs

    HP a230n
    Hp pavilion mx703 monitor
    Athlon XP 2800+
    512mb RAM (Dual 256)
    120 gb HD
    nVidia nForce2 Mobo
    300 watt psu

    Ok so I install it and everythings fine! I am so happy and playing my favorite games when boom, the computer shuts down and a little screen comes up saying PC entering power saving mode. Then the monitor turns off. So I turn the computer back on, the monitor still wont turn on, (monitor light is yellow, when it turns on its blue). So I install a 450 psu, boots up fine, another 30 mins, same thing. Then I put back my old Radeon 9200 and now everything is fine, except that my new video card is useless! Is there any solution, is their anyway to turn off power saving mode something? Please help.

    There are alot of issues with the 9600 pro cards and nForce 2 motherboards. Can you return or exchange the card. A 9800 Pro should work fine.
