Problem: - I had assembled this pc two months back and i guess i had made mistakes in choosing the right products. From the time i had assembled, i had issues with gaming and sometimes during the start-up. While playing the screen get stuck but i can hear the game's background music/sound, earlier it use to get stuck during windows start-up.
I did research on the problem by asking the community on forums as well taking some suggestions from friends who know tit-bit of computer. Everyone suggested that the problem was with Gpu, so i had replaced it with a new piece but still even after replacing the problem continues. My pc gets hangs when playing games, sometimes it works fine but sometimes it will suddenly stop. I am not able to understand if it is the hardware or the OS issue (I dont have the genuine OS, as i had ran short of cash while buying the pc and had to adjust with a un-genuine copy untill i buy a new genuine one - but many of my friends dont use genuine OS but still everything works fine for them except my pc).
Is it problem with my compatibility of Motherboard and GPU? As my motherboard is from classic series of Intel. RAMS are working fine, there is no issue as i ran the MEMTEST.
Any Suggestions what can be the issue? I am really bugged up with this issue as i am not able to find any solution for this problem... anyone who have any suggestions for this problem? It would be great if you can post your suggestions...
PS: - I also tested the GPU with the BURNIN test and it showed no error as well.
Thanks for your reply. I couldn't reply earlier i was busy trying to get my GPU replaced. But sadly the problem still persists. Before i used to have problem with gaming but now i am not able to log-in. I tried the trial and run method by un-activating all the services and activating one by one to see which service is making problem. I have found out that 'Desktop Window Manager Service Manager' is the one which is making problem. But if it is switched off i am not able to play games or watch videos, the pc hangs. Any suggestion how i can solve this issue?
PS: I have tried installing old nvidea drivers as well formatting the pc but still the problem exists.
Your PSU seems a bit wimpy, maybe its pulling too much current when drawing peak power and falling over.
If you know someone with a big beefy PSU that is willing to let you try it in your machine, it would be worthwhile checking it out.
A 500W PSU is enough to run a Phenom II X4 system with an ATi Radeon HD 4870 1GB which is an EXTREMELY hot and power-hungry card (believe me, I know, I have two of them...lol). Maybe it's God punishing him for using the unholy alliance of Intel and nVidia...lmao
