  5. i could really do with some help please guys because this is starting to get on my nerves
  6. If you could get the model number of the Power supply that would be great.

    If it restarting without blue screening then it points towards hardware. I am thinking it is the power supply. A RAM test with MemTestX86 is a good way to rule out the RAM. Only way to test PSU (Power Supply Unit) is to replace it. Do you have someone who has a spare one over 500W?
  7. this is the model number for my power supply: PC-650AUBA-M
  8. i have tried running a test on my ram and it came with no errors
  9. is that power supply good for my set up ??

    but i heard the 12v rail needs to have about 30 amps for a gaming graphics card but my power supply only has 20 amps is that a problem ??
  10. check the two 6 pin PCI Express auxiliary power connectors coming
    from the computer power supply to the connectors on the top edge of
    the GeForce GTX 460 graphics card.

    if they are not providing proper power your CPU will reset and your machine will reboot.
    as a first step, I would disconnect the connectors and reconnect them.
    Also, make sure your fans to the GPU and power supply are working correctly (remove dust)
  11. ive reconnected them cleaned dust and its still restarting mate
  12. since ive done that though its not glitching out when loading up counterstrike
  13. your power supply is from powercool (80% efficient= 520 watts available when new)

    since it is a modular power supply you might want to make sure your (2) 6 pin cables are plugged into separate rails on the power supply.

    if that does not help, I think your only real fix will be to swap in a new quality power supply.

    power required for GPU
    - 75 watts from motherboard PCI slot
    - 75 watts from 6 pin power connector #1
    - 75 watts from 6 pin power connector #2


    if one of the connectors is not providing power or both are from the same connection to the power supply
    you will be short on power to the GPU. if that occurs then the GPU will try to pull too much power from the motherboard and the voltage to the CPU may drop too low and trigger the CPU reset line. Or the motherboard or PSU can detect the problem and also tell the CPU to reset. End result is the system restarts

  14. Are you still having issues with other games? GO seems fine.

    I would recommend upgrading your power supply when you can. Get a quality power supply, cheap ones cause all kinds of issues.
  15. i had this power supply in my old computer but it never did this but i carnt remember the specs of my old computer all i know about my old computer is it was a intel quad core 4gig ram same graphics card and same power supply
