Re: System Restart regularly

Sounds to me like your power supply may be failing or loose connections.

You don't mention if you're overclocking the CPU. Double-check the BIOS settings to make sure things are set properly.

Another thing to check is if the CPU is overheating. Make sure the heat sink is still firmly attached to the CPU and that the CPU fan is operating.

Why will my ccomputer reboot but only when I am on the web watching music videos what is wrong with it?

I think is is DDR 1 based motherboard, need more information about your system like how much memory installed, which operating system you are using, Is it causing only for Internet video or any HD formatted movie you play in your system? What happens if you play large or heavy games or lunch large software which needs much memory? How log you are facing this problem?

Note: If you installed Ram about 256/512MB, and use programs in background at a time and try to brows internet It may happens, It may happens even if memory if defected, if your browse crashed and hang the os (most time windows). One other thing is it also can be happen in case of your graphics card or damaged motherboard! (Be sure about RAM first and operating system (is not virus effected) first).
you can mail me at for further query.

Cannot get how to videos to play on youtube.Would this be due to the fact that we are on the old dial-up system with my server or perhaps the speed is not enough? Or maybe i am just missing steps in the...

To watch Youtube videos, you must have a good internet connection. Slow connection greatly can affect streaming specially if you are trying to watch high-quality videos.

If you think you have a good connection, consider installing the latest version of Flash player here:

Restart the browser, and try again.

Hope it helps,

Every time i play games my computer is restart

Have you installed anything new lately into your P.C.? Graphics card , Ram, etc.. does this only happen when starting games?
Perform 'Disk Cleanup' and 'Disk Defragmenter' both found by clicking 'Start button', 'All Programs', Accessories', 'System Tools', then select 'Disk Cleanup' 1st and finish that before selecting ' Disk Defragmenter', When completely finished reboot P.C. and try your games. If it still happens it might be a simple thing like replacing the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The P.C. sounds like it's demanding more power when starting games and the P.C. restarting to protect itself.

Can i put a graphics card for my intel D915GVWB mother board?

You can not use PCI-EXPRESS graphics cards. Only AGP 2/4X Graphics Cards Supported ( 1.5V Only) You should look for This kind of Graphics cards.

I recommend , You must try changing your Motherboard with processor and buy a graphics card ( powerful one) to play these games. Otherwise You wont enjoy any of those games you mentioned.

n.b : a common PCI-E card has 16x speed where you cannot use more than 4x on your system.

I want to play an high graphic games on my computer Which is Intel D865GVHZ and do not have avg slot on it can I play the high graphics on PCI graphic card

In today's generation the PCI Express Slot are used for graphic card and it is available in many motherboards.

It is faster than the AGP Slot and PCI Slot.

In your machine, if you want to play higher games than you use that AGP slot because it is faster than the normal PCI Slot.
To play higher games you need an at least 2 GB of RAM.

My suggestion is that you just upgrade your system with latest motherboard and PCI Express Graphic Card that will play your all games very smoothly.

System Restart regularly

You may be 'onto something' there, and I'm embarassed!!!! Just looked at the vid card, and don't have the 3X2 connector plugged in. I took a quick look, but didn't see 1 to try to plug in.

I will check the others, and get back with spec's. The PS is brand new, since this 'opportunity' arose, and have also swapped the MB, as I had 2 of the same.

Please reply, so that I can reply back.

Thanks!!! Phil

Use the latest graphics driver to correct this issue. if your video card is onboard look for the model of the board in download the driver in the internet. Also if you have external video card try to re install the video card driver to fix the problem.

Note: If you continue to experience issues running the game with the latest graphics driver, try running the game with the -w switch which forces the game to run in a window.

Need help with pci express on my mobo I can’t get the PCI-E X16 slot to work on my new/old 939 mobo. It’s an old socket 939, but new, right out of the package. Might be presumptive of me to dump all this info here, but the computer is for my homemade lab and I teach high school in a poor neighborhood, so any help you might give is for a good cause. Here are the build’s specs: CPU: Athlon 64 Fx55 Mobo: AN8 VM with Nvidia 6150 onboard, with a pci-e x16 slot Mem: 2x 1gb sticks of DDR 400 PSU: 600 Watt Corsair When I tried to install a new pci-e x16 card, Radeon HD 5450, the monitor gets no signal. The computer comes on, does not post (keyboard does not light up), cpu fan and PSU fan both turn on, but nothing else happens. When I then take the pci-e card out and plug the monitor cord into the onboard video card, everything works fine, but ONLY if I take the pci-e card out. When I leave the pci-e card in and plug the cord into the onboard card there’s still no signal Things I’ve tried already: I plugged the card into another computer. It works. I plugged another pci-e x16 video card, an 8800gt, into this build and the same things happen, no signal. Tried with both the onboard card’s manufacturer’s driver and the standard window’s driver and tried both of these with them enabled and disabled and uninstalled in device manager Did most of the trouble shooting here with each of the three latest versions of bios available for my machine. BIOS settings I tried: Under Northbridge configuration there are a few seemingly relevant categories of parameters that can be tweaked, “VGA Options” and “Primary Graphics Adapter” are the ones I adjusted, but to no avail. Under “VGA Options” the choices are ‘Enable’ and ‘Auto’, the descriptions in BIOS of what they do is somewhat muddled. For ‘Enable’ it says: “enable onboard VGA, this should be chosen only when nvidia external VGA was installed.” The Auto description states: “disable onboard VGA if external”. The other parameters of interest, “Primary Graphics Adapter” has two options: “PCI->PCI-E->IGP” and “IGP->PCI-E->IGP” Mostly I troubleshot with “Auto” on and “PCI->PCI-E->IPCIGP” as that seemed to make sense. Other BIOS parameters that I didn’t try to adjust, but might be relevant are: OnChip VGA Frame Buffer OnChip VGA Trap Enable Under Hypertransport Configuration LDT to Geforce frequency Repost video on S3 resume Then there’s the IRQ stuff, under which there’s an option to “Allocate IRQ to VGA.” I think the choice3 is to have Bios do so automatically. The mobo is right out of the package and everything else works like a charm. My two 1 gb mem sticks might nit match. Everything is clean and all connections have been checked and double checked, what’s more I’ve tested the cards and monitor and they work. It must be either the pci-e X16 slot is broken somehow but hopefully I’m missing something in BIOS which someone here can shed some light on. Thanks in advance.
