    Just bought a GeForce FX 5500 video card, and as we speak, the monitor CONSTANTLY either
    1. Freezes up for about 10-18 seconds, and goes black, then appears normal again (Like it's doing a hard refresh
    2. The whole monitor refreshes itself instantly
    I messed with the monitor, and nvidia refresh rate, making them the same, But it didn't work. ALSO when I try to play Guild Wars Factions, It will go to the main login screen, and freeze the computer completely.

    Please help me,

    How many watts is your powersupply? If you don't know off the top of your head, you can check in the manual that came with your computer, it usually says in there.

    It may be your card getting too hot also . . .
