Graphic card driver all installed and now running.
Graphic card driver all installed and now running. I think perhaps due to the fact it only has 1GB of video memory, I can only get 1920x1080 res max on the 4k Monitor. The previous card had 2GB of memory, but this one was half that one's price. . But that's OK. When I ran the monitor at top rez I had extreme difficulty in reading any menu text (especially old apps like Photoshop CS6).
Everything is crystal clear at this resolution, so I'm happy with that. And the viewers work now (as seen below at 1/2 size) and so does sound again.
Thinking back on what was happening on the PC before, it was turning itself off at random times, but more often when I had a high graphics usage. Perhaps it wasn't the GPU at all, but just a dying graphics card. That would explain the times when the screen was off but the computer seemed to be on. Anyway the replacement card will do for now, and I won't get a better one until I get a better PC, sometime - as Shakespeare would say - by and by....
