  1. Personally, I'd start with checking CPU/GPU temperature as well as the RAM voltages.

    On a side note, what do you think about that graphics card? I was eyeballing it myself.
  2. i have temperatures that are fine for both cpu and gpu and everything worked fine on xp but as soon as i upgraded i couldt play certain games. the voltages are all normal what do you mean my video card. it will play many games but does get a little hot but i also have the haf to make up for that. wont go above 70c on crysis with 100% fan speed
  3. The video card will play most of the games you will throw at it besides crysis. For a geming card it scores an 8 out of 10 but on the bad side, you need phenomanal cooling. It does the job. DO NOT OVERCLOCK IT. it will fry
  4. Thanks for the info.

    Have you used a different driver for your video card?

    I've never tried this, but in the control panel there is "problem reports and solutions" utility. Maybe that will have something to say.

    You could also check out the event viewer and see if anything funny is recorded.
  5. it says it will inform me when a solution is available......... NOT
