i have a 6600gt made by evga inside a sony vaio pcv-rz32g, with a gig of ram added in. lately whenever i play a game that is ran off of directx9 my whole computer just stops loading. does any1 know how to fix this? i have tried to reinstall drivers i have reinstalled windows, i have done all i can think of but it still freezes, am i going to have to get a new graphics card? i dont have much money for one because i am getting a custom guitar next month so do you guys think i should try and get one off of ebay or something?
oh lol forgot to say i have a 500 watt ultra psu installed in my vaio also, and no it isnt original gcard, also i have been running this setup for like a year now and no problems have occured until recently
Your 12 volt is way out of tolerances per the spec (vers 2.2. ATX). It is +~30% over which could very well be your problem. Your heat levels are not really of any concern as far as I can tell, CPU's and Video cards can get far hotter than that (especially video). ASsuming your RAM is not bad then I would go with the PSU; it is far more likely that the PSU went bad than the RAM going bad.
i made it where it doesnt freeze, i added more connections. like instead of having a y cable that powered my gpu and hd i have 2 seperate cables now that power gpu and hd seperate. but is my psu like screwed?
