Question about Gigabyte MB GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2H AMD740G R Motherboard

1 Answer

After purchasing a new Motherboard, my computer jsut seems to power down after about 20 mins playing games on it. Other than that it is ok.

Just bought a new motherboard and chipset (Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2H and AMD x2 6000+) and since installing it, my computer jsut shuts down after about 20 mins playing World Of Warcraft. If just left alone or on internet it is fine, just buggers up if I am using the computer a lot

    Could be a power supply or heat issue. Please give more info on your system.

    Power supply, case fans, cpu cooler, heatsink, paste used...etc

It definately sounds like a heat issue.

Did you use the thermal paste to heat sink? Make sure your fans are all running. Make sure the heat sink is snapped tight to the processor.

I would suggest a system monitor to detect heat and speed of fans.

Hey! i have the same problem with MSI GF615M-P33 with Inno3d GT240 Video card and 600W power supply.

I don't overclock!!! and recently updated the chipset driver (http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1815), problem still persist.

Computer crashes when playing games


you have ruled out the video card
and since cooling does not seem to be an issue on you cpu, your next step is to switch your power supply
after that one is ruled out,
your next replacement is your motherboard.

good luck man!

When i get started playing the game it turns off on me with in 2 mins of me playing whats wrong


Ok, not much info to go on here...

However if its only the game that turns off and goes back into windows, then it could be a compatability issue of the game, you could try download the latest drivers for whatever hardware you are using, ie Video and sound.

IF the whole computer turns off I would suspect a power supply issue, possibly a motherboard, but try power supply first.

Dell e510 won't make it to post


Unplug computer, disconnect all usb/monitor/internet, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop out the BIOS battery (looks like a big watch battery and use a small flathead screwdriver to depress the spring lock on one side), plug in computer, hold power button for about 20 seconds (must reset BIOS), let up on power button, wait 10 seconds and push power button. The computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stable (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

If this has worked you have proven that it's not the power supply (it turned on). If you purchased a non dell power supply, you might try this with the original one installed.

Go buy a new battery (CR2032 3 volt). Unplug computer, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop in new battery, plug in (you should notice the power button blinking amber again), hold power button until it stops blinking (about 20 sec....again must reset BIOS), wait 10 sec., push power button. the computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stabe (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

Now, close case, plug in all usb/monitor/internet/etc. Power up computer. You'll get an internal floppy drive error. Push F2 (maybe F1) to get into the BIOS settings and go to "drives" and turn off the internal floppy. Save and exit. The computer should boot properly now.

This seems to be a big problem with the e510, my theory is that this one small battery is the root of most of these failures (as these computers usually fail after 1-2 years), not the power supply or the motherboard (heck, when you replace the motherboard it comes with a new one of these batteries...a several hundred dollar piece of hardware, with a $5 battery that will actually fix it).

Not powering on


In all actuality, it shouldn't make a difference. But there are select cords out there that may have a short or deliver the wrong voltage. That is why in the Sony warranty it says that the warranty is void if you use a cable thatisn't approved by Sony for use with the PS3.

So does the red standby light come on when you power on the toggle switch in the back?? If not then it is the power supply. You will need a new power supply installed.
If it does the old Green/Yellow/flashing Red when you push the front power button, the you have some motherboard problems and need to call Sony or sell it and get a new one, or find the problem and fix it.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
