ok, i have a a problem that so many other people had already had but had a simple solution to it.But i really think mine's different.
im getting this weird power warning thing
"A problem has been identified that the card is not receiving sufficient power and that the graphics processor has lowered it's performance to a level that allows safe operation"
most answers to this problem is 'your power supply sucks" and all but it really isn't with my case.This is my spec
Pentium dual core e2160(stock)
Abit ip35-e mobo
2x2GB Corsair XMS 2 DDR2-800
Galaxy 9600gt 512 mb GDDR3
Gigabyte superb 720 power supply(continous power 610 watts,triple rail +12v,18A on each ,combined amperage is 40-42,not 54A
2x160gb hard disk(one W.D one more is seagate)
samsung 20x dvd burner
please help me!!!!!!!!!!
i've not been gaming for two weeks now and i'm rotting.even cod4 where i normally get 90 frame or so in maxed out settings is getting less than 10 frames in minimum settings
just an info to tell you guys.when i run hwmonitor it says my +12v is only 6.80v.
In speedfan it is 6.44 volts.
But in the bios power management menu it says 11.91v and sometimes 11.97v.
even in everest it says 11.91v.
God i'm confused!
update:I just got my cousin's 7300gt(no power connector),running fine(of course not as fine as the 9600gt but at least its not getting 5 frames and below!)
another thing is that the voltages are still the same even with this gpu(lazy to buy dmm.hehe...)
after this will be trying with his gtx 260 to see what happens
somehow the windows mouse cursor seems to be a little laggy but games are okay.I feel the message might come again in a while (power warning message)
my cousin tried my 9600gt in his com using a silverstone strider 560 watts(wanted to buy that actually) and it was fine,,no lag,whatsoever.
so now its down to either my mobo or my psu(most probably the latter)
