RONNCALIF September 29, 2009 10:49:36 PM Looks like something that happened to me, my mother board got fried ubernoobie September 30, 2009 12:08:10 AM power supply could be failing since it restarted arges86 September 30, 2009 7:08:25 AM but does the PC start and run @ the desktop w/o any problems? it seems like the GPU, but if there are issues at idle, than it may be something else lashton September 30, 2009 8:59:28 AM yeah most probally the video ram on the card is stuffed, time for an RMA or an excuse to buy a better card Onus a b À AMD a b K Overclocking September 30, 2009 4:45:44 PM My suspicion: your machine restarted because an overstressed PSU shut down. As it did, it sent a damaging spike through the +12V rail feeding your graphics card, toasting it. What brand and model of PSU do/did you have? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
