Question about Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 AMD Phenom Socket AM2+ 3000 MHz Motherboard Retail

1 Answer

Trobleshooting Hello, I have a problem concerning proccessor AMD Phenom 9500. My system gets stuck while is loading something or even when the screansaver starts, sometimes gets stuck simply without doing nothing and rearly restarts on its own. I have also problem with some games becauce they get stuck too. I had updated the BIOS and it looks little better but the problem hasn't solved. I have the ga-ma790fx dq6 of Gigabyte for motherboard, a DDR 2 /2 GB ram of Kingston running at 1066, an ASUS GeForse 8600GTS for Graphic card and a Thermaltake 750Watts powersupply. Do you really think that the problem has to do with the AMD, the Motherboard or with anything else ???? Please response...... Thanks

    Thanks for your response.



    I have a Thermaltake case with a 14cm front fan, a 12cm back and one 90mm fan on the window. As you can understand there is enough airflow but i had checked through the BIOS that the CPU temperature goes at 45 dec. . You think that's a problem ?

I had the same issue with my AMD Athlon 3800+ dual core. I found that I wasn't getting enough airflow to keep the system and processor cool. You may want to check the heatsink and fan rating for your processor unless it was sold in a bundle. Also, On AMD's of such power, they tend to run hot if overclocked. Look into, if you haven't already 2 case fans to go along with the processor fans. I recommend a 90mm in front and a 80mm in the rear of the case. If this doesn't help, let me know.

This is a trick to make a folder invisible. We are not going to try to hide the file anywhere. In fact the folder would be right before your eyes but you can’t see it. Sounds intriguing? Actually it is very simple - just 2 steps.
Here’s how:
You can either create a new folder or choose an existing folder. While naming or renaming the folder hold [Alt] Key and enter “0160” (without the quotes). Release the [Alt] Key. You can notice that the name part of the folder is just a blank. What we have done is we have inserted a ‘Non-Breaking Space‘ as the name of the folder virtually making it appear as if the folder has no name. You can’t do this just by typing a space using the space-bar. That doesn’t work. Try it for yourself.
Now right-click on the folder and select “Properties” and choose the “Customize” tab. Click on the “Change Icon” button. Scroll along and you should find a few blank spaces. Click on any one of them and click Ok. That’s it. You can’t see the folder anymore.
Of course, if you select the folder (click on the folder), it will get highlighted

MY AMD PHENOM QUAD CORE HEAT SINK FAN IS NOT


First, check for dust. Compressed air works to clean it out.
Second, if the fan is not spinning at all when the computer is turned on, make sure it's plugged in - a wire should connect somewhere
If neither of those work, you may just have to look into a replacement fan, at the least, or a new heatsink/fan assembly. Make sure you get one for AM3 (as Intel sockets - usually designated with a number like 775, 1136, etc. - are secured differently.) They can run from cheap to over $100.

Having problem with new games


What is the Name and model number of your motherboard

The nforce 430 is an older chipset model and may not use the full capacity of the Phenom processor ...some boards won't even boot and there are Bios updates available for others ...etc

The onboard graphics (geforce 6150 se) is negated by the 8800 GTX ...good card......the problem isn't your video card

Your also running PC5300 ,,667mhz ram ....if board is capable of PC6400 ...800mhz ....there could be another speedup

The bottlenck seems to be with the board and possibly Ram

(Again MB model and name)

Also make sure you have all the latest drivers for Vcards ...chipsets BIOS etc......

Troubleshooting


How long have you had the system in that configuration? It doesn't seem to be a heat issue running around 45 degrees unless that is the idle temp. I need you to try something, when it shuts down, immediately restart the system in bios and look at the temp for the processor again. I solved my issue by taking a side off of my case and putting a small desk fan blowing directly into it. My idle temp went from 45 down to 27 degrees celcius. In a perfect world, the cooler a CPU runs, the better the system will respond. Find those temps readings for me, and let me know. Also, there may be a small monotoring program in your mobo set up disc to help monitor the temp while windows is running. And also, double check to make sure your processor fan is plugged into the correct spot on the mobo, mine is mislabeled, another issue I had found and corrected.
