Default Faulty card?

It's possible that there is enough heat being generated but I'd look at the
power supply. You probably want something 350W or bigger, preferrably
400-450W. If your P.S. is getting flaky it can cause strange video or other
problems as well.

This seems like an overheating problem to me, but the whole reason why

bought the OTES card is because it has this huge cooling system on it,

it's worked fine for months. Has the card just suddenly died?

To me it seems the same... Is the fan still turning on the videocard?

about the temperature of Your CPU? Overheating of the CPU can give about

same symptoms. Did You measure both temps?
If all this is OK, I wouldn't know how to help You I'm afraid. You could

putting Your videocard in another computer and test Your mobo with an

PCI card.

I've tried another card (a GF2 MX) in the machine and it works fine. The

isn't getting any hotter than it has done for ages (about 50 deg C under
load), and the fan on the card is still working. I'll see if I can send

card back.

Thanks for your help
