Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Pavilion p6520f PC Desktop
The PSU could be contributing to the issue, but I would think that the PC would either not boot at all or shut itself down within a few minutes. The GPU is a Zotac GeForce GT630 ZONE Edition with 1 gb of 64 bit, GDDR3 on board, no external power coupling. Please help.
HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU TROUBLESHOT.

Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

Testimonial: "Thanks. I cleaned out the dust and loaded CoreTemp.exe. The system stayed running through the programs that caudsed shutdown before - even though RealTemp.exe did not report a problem. So the system works, except that when I press the power button I still get the fast running fans instead of shutdown. I still have to pull the plug for shutdown.. I'll live with that."
if you mean audio soundbox
click start right click on computer select properties then device manager scroll to sound and video game controllers if you see a yellow question/exclamation mark or a red X the driver will need to
click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices right click on your speaker select configure speakers
right click on the speaker icon in the bottom taskbar you will see an array of options select playback devices make sure it has a green tick and the correct speakers are selected
be updated if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it although once speakers are connected widows 7 should automatically update the drivers
click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices playback you might have to set a default go for via high definition audio then right click on speaker
you might have to configure them then select properties you will see tabs general level in this tab make sure your settings are loud enough also enhancements and advanced from the drop down
list in the advanced tab select dvd quality or another then apply
hope it helps

SOURCE: i have installed two diferent graphics card, #1 was MSI 5459 and #2 was a Nvidia GeForce 250. Bth ran fine afor a short period of tme #1 for a month an #2 for about 2 weeks. After these periods of
I don't find the MSI 5459 graphics card, William.
Am familiar with the Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS, though.
Using the GeForce GTS 250 as an example, the graphics card requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, for additional power, along with the power it gets from the PCI-Express x16 slot it is in.
The unit is furnished with an adapter power cable, that converts 2 Molex power cables, (4-pin Peripheral power cables, actually), into 1 PCI-Express 6-pin power cable.
Note that the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, has two Yellow wires in it.
Let's look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
Note there is one Yellow wire, one Red wire, and two Black wires.
The Red wire is a 5 Volt wire, and not used by the adapter power cable.
The two Black wires are Ground wires, and only one is used by the adapter power cable.
The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire, and is used by the adapter power cable.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And three Black Ground wires)
This means Two 4-pin Peripheral power cables MUST be used.
Failure to use two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that adapter power cable, means the GeForce GS 250 is NOT receiving enough power.
This will burn the connection at the graphics card, burn the adapter power cable connector, and burn the PCI-Express x16 slot it is sitting in.
Takes time, but will happen.
Could this be what you have done?
It also requires 150 Watts all by itself. You need more power for the rest of the computer.
(The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable is designed to provide up to 75 Watts of power. This means 75 Watts of power, also comes from the PCI-Express x16 slot, it is sitting in)
Nvidia GeForce GTS 250,
