    k ive had this card for 2months now. i woke up this morning and noticed my comp reset. log on and i leave for awhile and come back and theres no display what so ever. I reboot and monitor still doesnt turn on and the fan on the card is running high speed like it overheated. So i took the card out and let it cool off. Plug it back in later, still same thing. So right now i got my old ati card in. I wasnt running any high intense game either when the screen went out. I also tried a system restore and still nothing. my power supply is 400w which is the min for the card, but it was working just fine for 2 months. Any ideas? i dont have the receit either

    It could be that your PSU might have fried your card. It seems that that video card has just simply gone bad. If it's only 2 months old then just get a replacement from the manufacturer. BTW what kind of PSU are you using(Manufacturer).

    By PSU I meant power supply(I'm guessing you are using the one that came with the computer). Anyway get out your card it should have a manufacturer and a serial number on it. Contact that manufacturer and tell them to get you a replacement. Or you could post a pic of the card if you cant tell who the manufacturer is, just blur out the serial number.

    Nvidia wont but PNY will. Computer stuff tends to have at least one year warranties so you should be good to go.
