Gforce 8400 problems

Previously I have Intel original 915 motherboard, P IV single core 3 GHz Cpu, 1GB DDR1 RAM and Sparkle gs8400 256 MB Graphic Card, 450 Watt PSU.
Now I have bought a New motherboard, Biostar m7-TE which supports all of my previous things except DDR1 RAM. I have change the ram to DDR2 transcend 1GB+1GB. System works fine.
But, after 30-40 minutes, when I want to reboot my system, a faint XP loading screen appears on the screen and machine halts. After few R&D, I have understand that this is the G-card overheatiing problem. I have open the case and off the machine for 5 minutes. Then machine starts and load XP normally.
I have tested the graphic card temp. with nvidia monitor (that is 57 - 65 degree C). But At this temperature, my previous intel motherboard could not behave like that. I have change the G-card with the same brand and capacity, but same thing appears. Is it like a thermal shutdown? Is there any setting in the motherboard? Drivers are installed propery, bios updated.

What will be the solution? please answer me here or at my gmail no.

I have a Nvidia 9500 GT 1 GB Sparkle Graphic card, the Problem is when I run the games after 2 to 3 Minutes it gets stucked the problem is only while playing games even I have install the latest drivers...

This is almost definately an overheating problem. If the card is the version with a fan, make sure the fan is working and that there is no dust etc. clogging the heatsink fins. If like the picture above, it just has a large heatsink, make sure the fins are clean. Next make sure you have good airflow through the system, you may need to get another fan in the case and point it at the card to keep it cool. Finally, remember that this card isn't really suited to modern games ie. 32 processor cores, low bandwidth memory etc. It will be working very hard to run games. Try reducing the resolution and turning off anti - ailising to reduce the workload. I had the 9500gs and although it did a good job, I ultimately worked it too hard and I had the same problem you are experiencing. I changed mine and bought a Radeon HD5770, no problems now.
Hope this helps.

Want to upgraded Pentium 4 2.8 GHz to Pentium 4 3.2E GHz

why not go with a faster MB and CPU combo?
First to awnser your question yes the Pentuim 3.2 will fit the MB as long as yours is a 800 Mhz Bus speed. And the Board can be configured for the proper clock speed. I would also buy a new CPU fan and heatsink greese b4 you install this CPU. Thee are so many cheap CPU MB Combos out there its almost cheaper to just replace both and get a much faster system.

Problem with pcx5750

Hi, sounds simple to me, Not enough RAM for what you are asking from your system. I would go to at least 1Gb RAM and if you can afford it 2Gb RAM, you can never have too much RAM but you most certainly can have too little. Regards mistyman
