    Is your computer all at stock speeds; memory, cpu, and video card? What games does it crash on? Also what drivers are you useing?

    Might be temperatures or a power issue. Probably not power though, the 9600 series cards don't draw that much.

    9600xt problems

    Thanks for reply.

    I think blue screen flashing is rare on games, but when on windows desktop i saw blue flashing like blitz lamp on camera. This flash is very short about milisecond and just like blitz on camera. When saveral minutes its happen again. Sometimes when i play games it flashing but not interupt or interfere with games, the games still plays smooth.
    Whats wrong in my card or its my monitor?

    my comp :
    P4 1.6 stock speed (1616 Hz)
    256 MB SDRAM stock speed
    Spphire 9600xt stock speed 500/650

    Temp of 9600xt = 37 - 39C idle. ATI Cat 4.11
    Temp of Processor around 48 - 50C idle.
    Temp of my room aound 26 - 27C

    And soon i must upgrade my Proc. MB. and Memory. must,must,must! right.

    Athlon XP 3000+
    NF-7 S 2.0 or Biostar, because in my country NF-7 is difficult for guarantee
    512 DDR PC3200 or PC2700
    120 GB SATA
    Is that good enough ?

    9600xt problems

    Its lots happening when enter the windows 2 - 4 times flashing, and after long period maybe hours its happen again. This flash is seen after i install CAT 4.11 and connect TV out to a television but in the driver i not turning on TV out. !Ohh! when i write this massage i just have seen blue flashing again twice. Maybe i should try testing it in my friend monitor or computer.
