hum i have no idea what OS do you have? it might be some kind of plug and play conflict.Have you looked at device manager?

running windows xp home. no problems found in device manager.
tested again earlier using omega drivers got the same " zero display service error" during driver install when install complete it ran for about ten minutes then locked up.
on reboot i had a no power connected msg from the graphic card. changed cables still same message.
im unsure what my power supply is ( watts). took the thing out no labels on it. ive heard these cards need a good power supply ie 350 watts, im wondering could this be the problem.

yes changed resoultions 800 x 600 to 1024 x 768 no problem.
also i ran 3d mark03 it completed that with good results.
it just locks in a game or just browsing the internet.
sometimes it didnt crash altogether and came up with a " switching to software mode " or something like that error.
ive downloaded latest via 4 in 1's but it made no difference.
