Problem just happened while i insert 7900GTX
Former graphic card: Fuzion 6200 PCI
Power: 480W ATX
CPU: Intel E6600 2.4GHz Core 2 duo
MB: ASUS P5B VM DO (micro board)
RAM: 1Gb DDR2 800 x2
Graphic card: Forsa Geforce 7900 GTX
harddrive: 60Gb IDE
Average temp(winter) MB temp: 45C CPU temp: 50C
Testing game- TES4 blivion, Call of Duty 2
Problem on Oblivion:
1. Hangs less than 1 minute (at least 15 seconds) and back to normal
2. After each hangs, as it back to normal, FPS slighty slower than before.
Problem on COD 2:
1. Hangs less than 1 minute and back to normal (same as above)
2. FPS slower much more than Oblivion after hangs
3. If you quit the game after the hangs, every single mouse clicks on the windows interface would cause black screen.
In addition, each hangs causing CPU work 50%+ in-game sound repeat. But back to normal afterwards
Comment: I was wondering if that is power supply problem, i'm still not sure whats going on, the card itself or .....
See if you guys have any ideas of whats going on about my PC, how to fix it..HELP~~me~~
It could be the PSU. List its specs for better help.
Also, did you overclock the card? I overclocked my NV 6800 a little too high (see sig) and was experiencing similar problemsin COD2, just without the black screen thing. If you did, back the core off a few mhz and see what happens. If it was factory overclocked and the issue is not the PSU, get a replacement.
First, lets try something that won't cost you money. Completely uninstall the drivers for the card and reinstall them.
If that doesn't work you may need to spend a bit. To me it looks like the PSU is holding you back. From what I've seen 350 is not enough for the 7900 GTX no matter what the Amps on the +12V rails. It seems like not enough power is going to card when it's under load. For good recommendations for PSUs take a look at PSU 101 and PSU reference US. PSU 101 will give you good insctructions on what to look for when buying a PSU. The reference list is a list of top end power supplies that will be good for your system. mpilch knows his stuff so listen to what he says.
