Tags: Homebuilt Hardware Processors Systems Last response: January 12, 2012 6:05 PM in Systems Share aaronbowers101 January 10, 2012 11:13:21 PM recently i have built a system out of old parts for a friend of mine, the system has started to play up unfortunately. 1st problem is that when i play a video the pc freezes then restarts. (can this be a driver problem?) 2ndly the processor is idle at 50 degrees but can i leave it to operate in this condition or will it cause other issues.

The load temperatures worry me more, when it's working hard. It may be a power problem, but reinstall your drivers first. What is the mdoel of your power supply, and what are all your other specs? aaronbowers101 January 12, 2012 5:42:58 PM it was the graphics card driver, i got errors for it and even a blue screen, ouch... any way replaced it and now everything is perfect. I did prime tests and and the temps never went past 60 degrees... so that's all good. thanks any way. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
