  • Locked inside by the videocards

    A member on the EVGA support forum reports that his GTX 295 disables his garage door remote.

    "I have discovered that since I installed my GTX 295s, my garage door remotes will barely work anymore. The 295 must give off just the right RF to interfere with my openers. I cannot use the remotes that come with the openers, the keypads outside the doors for opening the doors or even the "Home Link" remote system that is built into my car. If I shut my computer down with the GTX 295s, the problem goes away!"

    I would guess that he has a case with a window in it or it's all acrylic. He could also have a faulty PSU with a bad earth ground.. Finally the earth ground may not be attached to the case correctly.

      Maybe he should move his PC out of his garage, or at least far enough away from the garage door receiver.
