Hi All,

I have a problem I would like direction with. I have an Asus CG5270. Everything inside is still what came stock. I am encountering issues when running anything graphics intensive (I will use Witcher 2 for this example, but this issue is not limited to gaming nor is it limited to Witcher 2... this is also triggered by using Street View in Google Maps and is causing me to be unable to effectively do my job - in which I regularly use Google Maps Street View).

Order of events:
1.) Boot PC - all functions normally
2.) Start Witcher 2 - initially functions okay... after about 30 seconds the fans kick into high speed and the graphics and responses lag.
3.) Monitor goes blank, enters power save mode (which happens on any monitor I connect in my tests), sound remains for about 5 seconds and then all power is lost.
4.) Fans are still running but power is lost to the rest of the PC.
5.) Hard power off, wait 30 seconds to a minute then power on (only way to get this to stop and bring Windows back up)

I believe that my power supply (stock 400 watt) is not sufficient enough to run the graphics card at the correct performance level to meet my graphics needs. I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 220, which, per Nvidia, requires 350 watts. Considering most PSUs built into pre-bundled PCs never provide their maximum wattage for extended periods of time, I deduct that the inferior PSU is the problem.

I have copied fairly detailed system specs below. I removed registers (all except chipset) for space saving. All drivers are up to date. Only BIOS needs to be updated.

I am specifically seeking:
1.) Affirmation or negation of my deducted belief.
2.) Anyone with experience in this area's knowledge shared (knowledge gained is always valued).
3.) Advice on a new PSU (purchasable in Alberta, Canada) that will do more than just scrape by but is affordable and compatible with my PC (I believe I cannot go thicker than 120 mm with this case).

I, in advance, thank all those who contribute. Your time is greatly appreciated and valued.

Regards,
Amanda

In the above it states your 12v line at8.3v .Not good. But not believable either.
Could be the ps failing but temp 2 at 98 celsius is kind of scary.
Check the fan and heatsink on the video card. It may be clogged or the fan not working. It may need new thermal paste, the cheap stuff dries out.

Hi Rick,

Thank you for replying. The 12v line has run high like that since I purchased this PC a year and a half ago. The fan RPM has also been well above threshold the entire time as well. The current CPU fan speed is 1222 RPM, about double the recommended for that fan. The heatsink and fan are in tact and functioning as far as I can tell. My PC in general is well kept by me https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B7en40YFdhiDYWJkZDkxN2... there is a link to a photo I took a few minutes ago. This is the condition when I open it. There was one small dust piece on the CPU fan. :-) I am a bit particular about keeping things clean. Not sure where to go from here.

Gratefully,
Amanda

unless your measuring 12v with a multimetre then its not accurate. if it were 8.3v then the pc wouldnt ever have worked. you have a fairly low powered system, i think its a heat problem.

So today I swapped (for testing) my power supply with my husband's (his is a Antec TP 650W) and everything in my PC worked fine. I loaded Google Maps Street View without problems and then ran Witcher 2 at top video settings. Again, no power loss. So I purchased an Antec Earthwatts 750W Power Supply (which comes with a 135mm fan instead of the 120mm), installed it and have had absolutely no shut downs. As added caution to the temperature I installed two 120mm case fans (connected to the MoBo, so they are speed controlled; 38 CFM each, so sufficient); one in the front sucking cool air in and one in the back sucking warm air out. I would say today has been a productive day. Tomorrow will be better... uninterrupted work.

Thank you for your contributions and your time.

Regards,
Amanda
