I have a problem with my pc that has me hitting my head on a brick wall . a few months ago i started getting artifacts with my pc and then i got a message . your overclocking has failed resetting to fail safe defaults (I do not do overclocking at all . subsequently it still got the artifacts going so i decded to replace the graphics card.
The system was
3 x hd
geforce 9800 gt (Needed the additioln power connector to it
4 gig memory win 7 64
so i decided to change the hard drives while i had the case open as well . so changed it for one large drive . so changed the graphics for a gt 430 had exactle the same problem but seems to sort itself out after acouple of reboots . then no problems what soever . i got a video capture card to put in two days ago did what i do normally stuck the card in . exactly the same problem . and then i removed the firewire card and after a few reboots all sorted again and no problems since . I would like some guidance on what people think could be causing this since the mB + chip will be transplanted into another case in the year .
I shall restate i do not do overcloking all i did was use performance setting as per the bios . and i only seem to get the problem when i add another card in
