    Hi I am having a new problem with my NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT graphics card. It has decided to alter the effects on my computer (making the display look translucent) when playing a game such as Diablo or opening a single Dialog box. It has No problems found in the Notes are and it is a fairly new card and a monitor. It just happend today well it has been doing this not often but seldomly. I have not had this much of a problem with it I tried restarting the computer a few times and the bios lettering is all smudged too. I am wondering if it has to do with a power supply issue, because it asks for a 400 Watt supply and I think mine is only like 350w. I have talked to a lot of people about the power setting and in their opinion it really does not matter just as long as it is close enough to power compatibility. I hope this is not going to be an indefinite issue, yet it is pretty chaotic looking. Just hope there is a quick fix and if I do have to go down the route of purchasing a new power supply then I will just have to scrounge up a few pennies and purchase it thanks for your help. I also tried to reinstall the driver but I don't think it made any difference.



    Here are some examples of what I am referring to:

    Could you supply a picture as to what the issue looks like?

    And using a PSU with wattage under what is recommended for a card is ill-advised.

    I'd say that once you make sure you've installed all the appropriate drivers, re-seated the card, cleaned, etc., and if you're still having the problem...my money is on insufficient power.

    I have shown the pictures in the first post, I think my wire was loose but I am not a 100% sure if that is the case it seems to be working now. I just don't understand why I wouldn't be able to change the contrast it says it is not available.
