Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

PC Monitor and Game problem

\015 I have Civilization 4 and play it all the time. I decided to buy Beyond the Sword today. It installed without a problem however when I started the game it went into a choppy loop when the 2K symbol came up on the screen. I went and installed the 3.19 patch and it still chops up and freezes on startup. To make matters worse when I went back to play my original Civilization 4 it does the same thing now. Civ 4 had always played on my PC before but now it is doing the same thing as BTS.\015\012\015\012Earlier this week my Monitor slot in the back of my CPU stopped working. The monitor would no longer work when I connected it to the slot, so I ended up having to connect it to my Nvidia Geforce 5200 monitor slot. Tonight was the first time I have tried to play my games since I switched the Monitor connections. \015\012\015\012Could this have anything to do with the problems I am having loading all of my PC games now? I have been noticing that my monitor has been auto adjusting a lot while I am online, or on my PC period.\015\012\015\012I am using a Dell Dimension 2400 with a 2.8GHz Pentium 4, 1 Gig of Ram, and a Nvidia Geforce 5200 with the latest drivers\015

Answers :

Sounds like your dedicate video card bit the dust and you're back using the onboard video, which would absolutely be the reason why things got choppy-- it can handle the demands put on it by the games.

A new dedicated video card would fix the problems.
