    Sounds like an overheating video card. Make sure that all the computers fans are working.
    Check that any cabling is not blocking air flow through the case. Also check that the power supply fan is running.
    If the video card does not have fan purchase an add on fan.

    do you mean PCI card? if so a PCI card is any card that plugs into a PCI slot. and a PCI slot allows numerous different types of expansion cards to be connected inside a computer to extend the computers functionality. Examples of PCI expansion cards are network cards, graphics cards and sound cards.
