Yesterday I was simply checking my email and such when about ten minutes into my session my screen got a lot of distorted lines across it and then eventually went to the "no signal" black screen. I restarted hoping that it was an isolated incident but all my startup screens have the same distortion and after windows loads the screen goes back to the "no signal". I swapped monitors hoping that it was just my old monitor but to no avail. I swapped out my video card and my old card worked just fine. The card that is having the problem is my XFX nvidia 7900 GS 256mb AGP. I have only had this card for about three months and it was purchased new. The card recommends running a PSU with a minimum 400w and I only have 350w PSU. Could this be my problem? It hadn't posed a problem before but perhaps now it would have shown up? I welcome any solutions or input as I don't want to have to trash this card already because it usually does it's job pretty well. Cheers!
