I currently have an ATI x700 and I ran it for I would guess 9 - 12 months, not quite sure with no real problems I can remember. But at the end of that time frame, my video card seemlingly died. I'd be playing a game, and it would just freeze everything. And after the first reboot, it wouldn't even load my desktop before freezing again. So I shelfed it. then after 4 months my friend wanted to look at it cause he wasn;t convinced it was dead, and he put it in his side computer at his house, and it fired up first try. I was baffled. But then was re-dissapointed when it froze again while in the middle of a PC game, but was just hoping it was bad luck. So I brought it home, and played with it in my comp for abotu 2 weeks before it froze again. But I restarted and it continued to work for about the rest of the day, and I genreally had to reboot once a day for two or three days till eventually my computer just wouldn't display any video on a power up. So I put it in my extra computer here at my house and its been running for 4 days now no problem. Any one have any idea what might cause my video card to lock up so randomly? Is it getting too hot? the fan still works, i've checked. I have a 250w power supply, is that not enough to play play a graphics intensive game on my x700 card. Is it even possible to have enough PSU to load the desktop and funtion, and at the same time not enough power for a high demanding video game? I wouldn't think it would make a difference. But I'm out of ideas. Any help appreciated.
