    Hi, recently I bought sapphire 6870 HD graphics card.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...4102909&cm_re=sapphire-_-14-102-909-_-Product.

    I deleted my old drivers and installed 6870 + the new drivers. I was testing the card for about 30 minutes then all of a sudden my computer went black and the fan from the graphics card went loud. When I tried to reboot, monitor wasn't turning on. I tried my 2 old videos card and they seemed to work but not the 6870. I'm wondering if its something I can fix or just get it replaced.

    Thank you:

    Power Supply: Zumax 750W
    Motherboard: Asus M488TD
    CPU (AMD): AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz
    4 GB Memory
    Old Graphics Card: EVGA GT 240 GeForce 1GB

    sounds like faulty card especially as others work, can you try it in another to test?
