Have you checked the PSU which is found within your computer, as suggested by oxymoron02?

Is your computer a laptop or desktop?

Could you please write what suggestions you have already done please?

Thanks,

Harry

PSU = Power Supply Unit (it's a big box eletrical box with lots of warnings on it within your case).

Could please try and see what the watts is for your PSU, turn off the computer first.

What software did you download?

You could purchase a new PSU, since stating in your last post that the wattage was 365W, and the recommended amount is 500W.

See here: GeForce GTS 450 review roundup

What does everyone else think?

You could get a lower-end graphics card or a graphics card which suits your PSU wattage better.

The PSU would be connected, otherwise you wouldn't be able to turn your computer on.

How old is the card? We could perform a stress test of your hardware components, to detect any hardware faults with the graphics card.

Before, the stress test, create a BACKUP and move the backup onto a external media (e.g USB memory stick, external hard-drive or different hard-drive within the computer (not partition).

Hope this helps,

You didn't follow instructions to fill in your system specs so we are a little in the dark here.

We have only an idea of your actual GPU since many companies made it with different configurations, memory, and clock speeds. It is connected to your PSU, if not with 12V PCIe cables, then through the PCIe slot and bus.

Your title mentions Aero trouble but your post does not.

Pretty much. Although it's unusual for a graphics card to even allow a system to boot if it isn't even recieving enough power, it's not entirely unheard of them to operate in a low power mode (as I found out the hard way many a moon ago and after much frustration that the awesome new card I had bought was not living up to expectations!).
On the other hand in this low power mode it shouldn't have been able to handle the games that Daniel mentioned at the good quality which he said he got.

Moving into the realms of near-fiction I suppose it's vaguely possible that it was operating at the peak of its ability on a drastic lack of wattage, but something here still doesn't add up.


We may have to consider the possibility that the card has simply turned faulty. However I would still highly recommend replacing the 365W PSU with something higher.

To try and round the points up for you:

1) Update your system specifications - Britton30
2) Stress Test, but remember to create a backup beforehand
3)PSU; consideration buying a new PSU with higher wattage - oxymoron02

Hope this makes things clearer for you.

Thanks,

Harry

I bet the card is sitting incorrectly on the PCI-E slot causing it to run in PCI-E 1.0 x1 instead of 2.0 x16, you can check the mode with GPU-Z.
