Please reply about blank screens

  blackwhite 11:22 22 May 2003

I have a ATI9500pro on win 2000(SP3), AMD2400.

Whenever I play games the screen goes blank after couple of minutes of gameplay.

I have run 3d benchmark, 350PSU, DX9.0, nothing else on the motherboard.

I have tried five different types of games with the latest patches.

Please help

What monitor do you have?

which game(s)

There are different fixes for different ones.

Do a reach for "game name" + Forum in google


"C&C Generals" + forum or "Metal Gear Solid" + forum.

You need the " around the game name if there's more than 1 word.

You should find that all official and many unoffical forums will have a technical thread as well as cheat threads.

Post in the Tech thread of the appropriate game and you should get good help.

reach = search!

Have you checked that the graphics card isn't overheating. Try running the computer with the covers off and see if you get a longer time game playing before the screen blanks.
