I have an Evesham system running XP Pro with twin Nvidia 7800gt graphic cards, the problem started last night when the monitor began being garbled whilst running a game (Age of Empires 3) I closed the system down and restarted but the screen was still the same, I read a number of similar threads and did the following.
(1) Downloaded the latest video driver from Nvidia (Dec 07) (2) Opened the case and cleaned dust away from both cards (3) Removed and tested each card separately.
Having rebooted system with card 1 same problem.
Rebooted with card 2 system fine for half an hour, inspected card 2 and thoroughly cleaned Replaced card 2, both cards installed and system stable screen working fine.
Rebooted this morning system fine for one and a half hours then screen began to flash between blank and normal before screen goes into standby and I have to turn CPU off.
System will reboot fine and everything works ok but after a little while same problem. Screen goes into standby
XP pro service pack 2 1 mb of Ram AMD 64 Processor 3700+ 2.21ghz Twin (SLi) 7800gt Nvidia graphic cards
reistalled and cleaned everything lunch time seems to all work ok except when i press the sleep button on my keyboard it shuts system down and I have to restart! never did this before! Any one have any ideas? Please!
