Check for any overheating problems using GPU-Z and CoreTemp.

almost absolutely definitely an over heating problem
try these

Core Temp (google it, its free)
realtemp (also free)


and report the temps here, the CPU must stay under 65C and the GPU which IMHO is your problom, under 80/85

thanks a lot for replying guys...but i don't exactly know how to check these overheating,wat i figured out was...

i downloaded Core Temp,real temp and GPUz as u guys said...but i din't have a clue how to use them...

still,i got some info on GPUZ...
so,i ran gpuz and saved a log file on desktop...then i started a hanged...i restarted my pc...then i saved that log file...i repeated the same procedure for all my i need to do anything apart from this in gpuz??i will soon upload the screenshots of those log files...

Real temp - as far as real temp is does not support amd,got nothing out of it...

Coretemp - i downloaded it...i ran the showed temperature readings as follows...
Tj max - 70C
CPU #0 - 21C Low-20C High-22C
now i don't know how to use this software while playing games...bcoz when i play games...i can obviously not see this,plz tell wat to do..

@ pcworm - i really have no clue wat IMHO is...plz help...

IMHO: in my humble opinion

core temp: go to options/settings and enable logging, it logs temps

What are the idle temperatures that GPU-Z reports?
December 8, 2010 8:01:51 AM

idle temperature - i am assuming the temperature that the software shows when no game is running....right?? so that temperature is 30C(GPU temp) more temperature its displaying...GPU temp #1 - (31C and 30.5C)
other specifications in idle conditions are...
Gpu core clock - 157Mhz
Gpu Memory clock - 300Mhz
Fan speed - 28%
Gpu load(%) - 6,17,4,1,4,3
Fan speed(rpm) - 3542-3557
VDDC - 0.900V

while gaming...
GPU core clock,GPU memory clock,Fan speed(%) and VDDC...they show the same value as in idle conditions...
GPU temp - 31C
GPU temp #1 - 30.5-31.5(varies)
Fan speed (Rpm) - 3540-3560(varies)

will upload all the screenshots today in a while though...

@pcworm - thanks for clarifyin IMHO...:D 
but wat were u asking wen u mentioned 80/85??
December 8, 2010 8:43:12 AM

i enabled the logging feature in core temp...but where is the file location??how can i noe dat???

It looks like that its not any overheating problem.What PSU( Power supply unit) do you have?
December 15, 2010 4:16:13 AM

i formatted my pc...installed the latest drivers again...but it still din't fact this time,even the movies weren't getting good graphics...
then,i removed my graphic card and ran my pc with its onboard graphic card i.e ATI Radeon HD 4290....this time everything ran are running absolutely it still a PSU issue???or should i replace my graphic card???
