Problems with XFX 4890

when ever i play a game, like 2 or 3 minutes into the game, my pc freezes and nothing responds.. :fou:
the card is not overheating (50 C in idle and like 60 C in game). i have a Vantec ion2 520watt PSU
it has to be the gfx card because if i reboot immediately after crash, i get no signal to monitor after XP loads up. :(

the card is about a month old and was working perfectly with my old mobo, ram, cpu that i sold last week to buy an i3 530, intel H55HC mobo and transcend DDR3 1333 ram


all answers will be much appreciated :)

thanks ;)

  1. looks like your psu is not getting enough power for that new rig,(i think its intel's
    turbo mode) wants more power from your psu.

    so the gpu doesnt get as it was supposed to with your other setting,
  2. intels turbo mode? my i3 doesnt have a turbo mode
  3. Hey,

    I have an idea on what is causing your crashes, similar problem happened to a friend of mine. You have the Intel BLKDH55HC or BOXDH55HC motherboard right?

    If so, go into the bios, on the security tab there should be three options:
    Intel® Virtualization Technology

    Intel® VT for Directed I/O (VT-d)

    VT Technology or XD Technology or NX Technology or any combination of these

    if you have these options let me know and I can tell you what my friend did to fix the graphics issue!

    I hope I can help,

    Greg
