Why does my computer lockup when I run veetle or skype after installing a new video card?

by on March 30, 2013

Q: I have recently installed a new video card on my computer but when i run programs like veetle or skype video my computer instantly locks up. I have ran a memtest for the ram and i ran the seagate program to see if my hard drives are failing but everything passed. Even when i run youtube or run a movie on windows media player within 10minutes it freezes as well. I don’t know what else to do please help.

    Make sure you’re running the latest driver for your video card. Depending on the card you purchased you’ll want to get that from probably either nvidia.com or ati.com

    If that doesn’t resolve your issue, contact the manufacturer, as you might have a defective card.
