12/03/2013 09:23 AMPosted by runit3If you're getting a black screen there are only a few possible problems
1) corrupted/incompatible drivers
2) thermal barrier is being hit
3) GPU is failing (breaking)
4) your monitor is having display issues/potentially failing
The GPU series you listed are quite old, and it wouldn't surprise me if the card is on its last legs. It's a minor miracle my 2 old 9800's are still cookin along on my old rig. If following SilverFox's suggestions do not work I would pull out your card(s) and physically inspect them as well as give them a good cleaning. Also make sure to blast your MOBO's PCIe slots with some compressed air and check the airflow around the cards. If it is a thermal barrier problem that should help.
For #4 you can try moving your monitor to VGA or DVI (whichever display adapter it isn't using). This may also help if there is a physical problem with the GPU and one method of display is no longer functioning @ 100%.
Same issue here with my GTS 250, made it go away by lowering my resolution to 1440x900 16:10, dunno why it worked but it did. I'm not happy about it but at least I can play now. Hopefully they can fix this. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5051695392?page=1#new-postI've seen a lot of topics where the monitor randomly goes black and gives the "Signal out of range" issue while gaming. I got this problem as well, and I tried everything from installing the newest drivers to downclocking the card using Ntune. Nothing works, however, i found out that it's most likely a firmware issue.

Check if you can adjust anything in Nvidia control panel / manage 3d settings. What I did was when installing Nvidia drivers (custom/clean), uncheck 3d vision driver, uncheck 3d vision controller driver.
