Question about OCZ 1010W Gamexstream Power Supply (OCZ1010GXSSLI) Power Supply

1 Answer

OCZ 1010W Gamexstream Power Supply becomes unstable when i upgraded my graphics card from a Nvidia 8800gtx to a nvidia 280 1gb. It keeps losing the device on startup and has to keep re-installing the device. I have taken my sound card out (x-fi fatality) but it makes no difference. When i put the 8800gtx back in, the system becomes stable again! The atx 20 pin to the mobo has a 4 pin next to it... i don't know if that is supposed to be plugged in also. Please help.

If your graphics card is overheating, it isn't because you have a weak power supply. It is because it is working too hard. Clean the Fan/s and make sure there is a good supply of air circulating inside your case. The wattage you need from your power supply will depend on a lot of things, not just the graphics card. Processor, number of hard drives and no. of optical drives as well as any case lighting and extra fans you have fitted. But I would suggest at least a 600watt psu for a low end machine to 1000 watts or more for a cutting edge machine. Always buy a named brand of PSU such as Coolermaster, Akasa, OCZ or CIT these all have good reputations and are readily available. Buy the best you can afford- your supply will only provide as much power as you system needs, not all of it at once.

Are there any video cards that you can use to upgrade the 530g? I have seen posts that the power supply is an issue. If it is possible is it a matter of installing the card and disabling the onboard...

Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

I have just got a new ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 512MB AGP Graphics Card my sytems a 2.4 P4 1 gb of ram xp running on it and it will not play any of my games it shuts my computor down and puts the monitor in...

The power supply should be efficient enough. You have all the drivers downloaded, so I would suggest upgrading your memory. If you only have 1 gig of ram, half of it is going straight to video card.
I also suggest downloading "glary utilities" program which is free. It will boost and clean registry, remove trojans, spyware, duplicate files, adware, manage start up programs, and so much more.

Also when running games, it is a good idea to shut off any other running programs. Every one that will allow you to.
Just not enough memory in the system.
I would recommend 2.5 or more.

OCZ 700 watt powers up but computer will not boot into post

I know this one can be frustating. More than likely the power supply is no good. There is a fairly high surge when you first turn on a system. If the supply sags, the system may not start. I had this ussue before. When I would just barely pull the power cord out, just enough to break the circut for a split second, sometimes the unit would boot. This is because all of the capacitors at the processor supply rail are charged, therefore less of a surge.

Sli pc keeps crashing

Ok, here's the deal. the total power grab from the cards total is 800 watts. your power supply can only send 400watts max to the cards. everything should be ok if only one card is used but, if you enable the second card, you system will become unstable and it will crahs(shutdown). i recommend upgrading to a power supply that can handle this load. You can run one card but, not two at this time. you will need a power supply that is in the 800- 1000 watt range. this will fix this issue.

Corel 14 problem

This could be due to a problem with your graphics card. Check that your graphics card drivers are up to date and that they are capable of supporting corel.
Try opening a new file and working using wireframe you might find that this error doesn't happen, if so then it definately a graphics card problem.

Looking to buy a new graphics card

You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.
