No Signal with Nvidia GT 9500 PC screen goes blank with no signal error when loading games
Hi guys,
I have been trying to resolve an issue with my graphics card for some time now and at an end.

Error is when ever I run any graphics app / games -
Eg Nvidia physsx demos, Games , COD4, C&C generals. Running a graphics card test with nvidia software still locks it up.

I am able to load the games up and soon as I start the game play area
my Pc screen turns off- goes black - no signal input.
The pc is still running. So I have to reset it and try again.

The error started as soon as I set this PC all up.
I exchanged the graphic card for another. Same problem. Same brand.
All parts are brand new. Fresh install of Win xp.

1. Many different nvidia drivers have been tried.
2. Using different memory chips.
3. Tested ram and all is fine.
4. Increased CPU mhz
5. Reinstalled games
6. Disabled on board sound card and installed a creative card.
8. Reinstalled Realtek audio drivers with latest ones. Also tried stand alone sound card.
7. Kept case open for more cooling.
9. Updated bios drivers from AMD.
10 Formatted and bought new hdd 380 gig barracuda drive
11. uninstalled card and run games with on board card works fine, soon as card is in (no signal when launching a game)

I heard that it may be my monitor but seen other posts where this was a waste of money.
Monitor is a Liteon LCD monitor.
currently set to Native at 1280 x 1024 refresh rate of 75Hz. I have tried to change this lower as well as 800 x 600. No luck.

Everything in PC is new except my modem and monitor.

My PC specs are as below. Also Pic of card attached.
any ideas what I can do for this ?
