Nvidia Graphic Card Blackout Problem

Likes # 0

Hello i seem to be having a regular problem with my latest Nvidia 8400S graphic card. It was installed by an computer engineer before last Xmas to replace a similar one that came with my computer when i purchased it. What happens when im playing a computer game either from desktop but especially online and also yesterday when i was watching a stream film. The screen would suddenly blackout sometimes after a short while it will correct itself and come back up. Otherwise it will completely remain blackout and i will have to restart the computer again. When it does come back up it will say theres an error with the graphic card etc. on the bottom menu. I have been updating the drivers for the graphic card each time but it has been happening sometime and now with more frequency so i wonder if someone can explain what can be the cause or if there is some way i can correct this? Thanks a lot.

Hello i finally got round to open up the computer again. These are the details from the power unit i hope they are the right ones.

Model Number FSP250-60HEN 3.3V & +5V = 115W Max Total Output up to 250W

There was the usual AC DC figures as well so i hope this will help you. I did another clean out of the boards with a brush this time. When you are ready and this is the information you want let me know what other GPU boards i can go up to thanks.
