More about system hanging repeatedly
  1. Wattage of PSU.
    Unplug the cables, take out the card and blow some air on the PCI slot
  2. Wattage of CPU is 500 Watt . Supposedly sufficient according to Acer and the retailers.

    System did this with old xfx series 4600 HD card too ( Which I still have and don't need SIGH!) :cry:
  3. It is of course sufficient but it, itself, maybe the problem.

    Ask a family member or a friend for a PSU and check your card on it.

    Then you'll know if it is the PSU or something else.
