Hi everyone I have some major problems with my graphics card. It started yesterday when the 'tv out' stopped working when I was playing PC games. When I tried to click on the GeForce Tab in display proprties it said 'Catastrophic Failure' has occured (didn't sound too good) I tried de-installing and reinstalling the drivers from NVIDIA (as I don't have the original CD with drivers on) but Windows XP won't allow the drivers to load as it doesn't pass there testing (or something). I now don't even have that tab. Nowits just working on basic monitor properties. I'm not a techie but some help would be majorly appreciated cheers Oli:beer:

Just check and take out your card, put it back in and make sure it is firmly, try the latest drivers http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and if it still giving problems take it back.
