    I have a Windows Xp Computer that has started having issues. The other day I bought a game Spotlight Fever I installed on my computer. I tried to play it when I noticed it would not play. I found out it was the video card that was installed. I pulled an ATI Radeon 9200 series PCI 128MB from another computer and put it into the computer I wanted to play the game and that is when this current issue came up. After an hour or so my came freezes I hear repeating sound from the game and then I see the same message you see on my monitor when you shut down your computer (Please Check Your Video Connection).

    I have put the old card back in and played a game I could play with that card and nothing happens the games I am able to play run ok.

    Can anyone tell me what could be going on?

    It sounds like to me that the ATI Radeon is not compatible with the game.

    With that card installed all games come to that point.
