If you would provide more information about your Systemax system... model/serial number I can look the specs up. I can tell you the only way that it could be the hard drive would be if you had a bad power supply, not that your system can't handle the "power" of the hard drive. If you end up getting a new power supply, you could opt for one with a little higher wattage if you'd like. A 160gb hard drive isn't going to pull any more meaningful amount of current than a 40gb. What I would look at would be wither you had the jumpers on the hard drive configured correctly. For info on jumpers, see...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumper_(computing)

Individual drive manufactures and drive models have different method for setting the jumpers and it will also very on what other IDE connected devices you have in your computer (optical drives, hard drives, Zip drives, and etc.).

Why does systemax pc shut off at anytime


The memory or the cpu may be overheating, check to see that the cpu fan is running and that the insdie of the pc is free from dust, as the dust will make it run hot, also make sure the power supply is dust free as well.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a great day.

Need network adapter driver for p5gc-mx a Systemax cpu...


Here is a link for your driver. You listed it as Systemax but the P5gc-mx is an Asus motherboard.

Choose the correct operating system and see if these are the drivers.

At the first drop down choose motherboard, at the next drop down choose Socket 775 and at the last drop down choose the P5gc-mx.

Hope this helps.

I have a Systemax Venture computer that is 3 years old. Just developed a problem. Turn the computer on and after 20 to 30 seconds the computer shut down. What is wrong???


Hi there.
Remove all power to the desktop, remove the side panel, power the machine up and check that CPU fan is working, if it is turn the computer back off, get a clean, dry paintbrush and gently clean the fan blades and the metal heat sync behind the fan of dust, then restart the PC to see how long it stays on for. If this time it stays on it was overheating.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Possible to upgrade?


Any system can be upgraded, just depends on how much money you want to spend, and what format you wish to choose. Systemax systems were not bad systems. New motherboards (MB) allowing the latest CPU, and memory configurations are possible in any box, providing the power supply can handle the load. What type of OS comes into play, as unix based alternatives are growing daily with users exploring that option. Most of the world uses Microsoft OS's, and yes your system can but upgraded to use Vista if need be. I build PCs and normally use a brand new box to start with. State of the art gaming or business apps, your system is already out dated the minute it was made. New this or that comes out at top dollar. Is it necessarry to have every option and gadget? Usually not, so tell your builder what you plan to do with the PC and let them put together the machine built to YOUR liking. Hard Drives are light years from the 10 MB behemoths of the 80's, the terabyte drives of today are under $100. If the data is on your old hard drive, it can be ported over to the new system so you don't lose the precious pictures of you and yours from way back when. It comes down to what you want and what options are available at the time you make up your mind. Chances are, if money isn't a question, you'll end up with a new machine. You can get the data off the old PC, and then can give your old system to a friend or relative and they can learn on it. Or you can gut the old systemax box and put in new power supply, dvd burners, MB, memory, CPU, TB HD, new multi option a: drive with card readers, the latest in graphics cards. All the buzzes and whistles, liquid cooling if you so prefer. What ever floats your boat, just comes down to how much money you want to spend and how elaborate you want your system. But to answer your question, anything can be upgraded.

POWER FAILURE AFTER HD CONNECT


Ok ATA is the standard for data transfer, in this case it is IDE. 133 is the max transfer rate. I have removed the hard drive from ours (bought from dell directly and has not been changed) and the hard drive is set as Master (no jumper). Try this if it does not work i would test the hard drive in another system or in an inclosure.

Random shut downs


Check the CPU fan it may not be spinning at the full speed or not turning at all. Check that there is not cable that is obstructing the fan blades. When the CPU over heats the machine will shutdown to save it from any damage. Then other thing to check is the power switch make sure that it is not sticky or stuck in. It also could be a memory issue but normally there will be a blue screen fault and audio beeps when you first switch on.

Try these Thanks J

Power on then off


If you have not installed any new hardwares, perhaps your computer infected with virus, run your computer in safe mode and then scan your computer.

If your antivirus is potent then maybe you have installed new software to triggering your system to restart and restart to protect the system.

if non of this; maybe your system is corrupted. backup your files and reinstall the windows to repair the errors on it.

Thanks for nothing systemax


matching peices of hardware in a notebook can be difficult, but it does sound as though the CPU has failed, and at $450 for a repair, its worth spending a liitle extra for a higher spec new notebook.
