Question about Acer Aspire M1201 Athlon X2 320 Gb PC Desktop
Well that is a new one. I always thought that the hardware of the computer drew the power from the supply and for the hardware to run properly the drivers do that trick on request. But the power rating of the supply will accomodate the drive motors are the ones that use the most wattage. Less than 300 watt supplies are the ones that will show you a flip flop...
Well since you surf the NET the bidg spider web... and you may have an anti virus program I guess go to trendmicro and use housecall it is a free scan just takes time this site is safe.
It really sounds to me that you have alot of programs running in the background that is using up resources and if you are using explorer 8 *ate Yes it is a realestate hog it eat memory that is your resources CTRL-ALT-DEL task manager tap into performance tab PF usage should be lower than then 0.5 of your total memory 3/4 usage is a red area! This usage is a gauge for your resources.
You may have to increase your memory or reduse whart is running or sitting in standby...
The memory today is less expensive than in the early years.
I expect you have went hog wild trying new things on the net installing games and never uninstalling them and they may be sitting in standby mode in your memory which is eating your resources.
If you card ran good for a week and suddenly you are experiencing poor running performance and the images are great as they where after the video install. Yea they know what they are doing and you are just learning this! Otherwise you would of did your own work...

I understand that your power supply may be large enough, but there is a problem with it.
When you use any system, the base power supply is about 350 Watts. However, for every two drives you add to the system, add about 50 Watts. PCI cards about 20 Watts.
I suspect that if your system is freezing all of the time, check the voltages on the +12 V yellow, -12 V blue, and the red, and white wires.
When the voltage difference from positive and negative voltage exceed .4 watts difference, then the computer starts freezing. I've tested over 100 power supplies.
Any other questions, I am a certified A+, Network+, and Server+ technician. Studying for my Linux+ certification.
