Amd phenom ii x4 B50 & nvidia geforce 8200 crashes on high graphics sites

amd phenom ii x4 B50 & nvidia geforce 8200 crashes on high graphics sites or even when using lots of graphics offline: even when changing the desktop wallpaper! Running Win XP Pro SP3 but computer has had this problem from new which is why I suspect it is a hardware issue. Runs nicely otherwise, quite quick, no other nasty habits :-)

This is the worst site: www.airnz.co.nz, especially if I login and use the create itinerary feature!

Thank you for any light you may be able to shed on this problem.

  1. Could be anything. Can you list your computer specs?
    To test CPU and GPU, download and use the following two programs, one at a time, for about 30mins:

    GPU: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
    CPU: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/

    if it still BSODs, it _may_ be the culprit.
  2. Thank you, I will try it after Christmas :-)
  3. Drop the unlocked core(s) and see what happens.

  4. I'm sorry, I don't understand :-(
  5. I trust everything such as Microsoft Silverlight, Shockwave Flash, and Java are up to date ehh?

    and of course, make sure your drivers are up to date.

    Just to rule out a software issue. I know even New Computers can be a few months behind on their updates.

    It has its updates permitted so they are done as they come in. I have installed updated drivers for the graphics card, anything else?
  7. We had a look at it over the holiday break and it has integrated graphics: probably fix the problem with a new graphics card but its fairly old. Boss's decision, but it may be on the way out!
