Performance Warning Issue

Whenever the computer is restarted customer gets the message “ Performance Warning Your graphics board may not be properly supported by the computer's power supply. The clock speeds have been decreased to reduce power consumption. This may result in slower than expected application performance. Please make sure the appropriate power supply cables are connected to the graphics board “. System Specifications are listed below. This issue is since Day1. I have requested for a day’s time from the customer.



System Model : XPS 730x

OS Vista Ultimate 32 Bit

Graphic Card : R700



Please advice on what can be done.

  1. yes
  2. System has 1 k.w of power supply, which is sufficient to have the video card perform at its best..
  3. Is the PSU a quality unit? i have had a PSU in the past that was 500W and my graphics card required a minimum of 400W. i had exaclty the same message as you posted. in the end I ditched my £30.00 500W unit and bought an £85.00 unit and have never had a problem since.
  4. Thanks for the info..

    Have advised other sets of 6 - Pin Connectors & changing Power Options ...

    will udpate how it goes .. else i have to go in for a new p/s of 1 k.w ,

    oops that's gonna be a lot of money :(

    **yeah I take ur point** will do next time surely
  7. If you swap your PSU i'd go for the Corsair units. They are excellent. If you go to Corsair.com you can enter your computer spec and it'll recommend the unit you need. 1Kw is way more than you need. I'd go for either the 750 or 850W unit. The Corsair 1Kw unit is excellent but very very pricey. However if you've got the money go for it.
  8. Guess wt I fixed it .. I happen to connect the P15 / P16 connectors & also bypassed the UPS ..

    Restarted , Voila all is fine

    cool money saving ::)
  9. Hello all,

    I have the same message displayed. I am running a sapphire 4870x2 with a BFG EX1200 PSU. The vid card has both a 6 pin and an 8 pin power socket. I am plugged into the eight pin - do i need both?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
