SOURCE: 1gb shows 512mb only

Your mobo is quite old and its chipset can only support a maximum of 512MB PER SIDE (technically called a bank) of a memory module. I would guess that your 1gb memory module has 8 chips that are all located on one side of the module, putting all of the 1 GB on one bank. Thus, only 512MB of your 1 gb RAM is detected and usable by your motherboard (the remaining 32 mb is most likely being used by your onboard video). You'll need to find a double sided 1 gb memory module (usually 8 chips on each side).

Yes, you can put a PCI-Express card into your computer. If you wanted to read over the spec's for that motherboard here they are.

SOURCE: Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?

It states specifically in the manual that the two types of memory are not to be used at the same time on the motherboard.

Computer Randomly Shuts off

If it only seems to be shutting down when connected to a 2nd screen, it's your GFX card that's overheating.

Normally, you'd hear a beep or two before it dies, but that would only be if you have the pc speaker connected to your motherboard, and also only if the card manages to send the error to the motherboard before it shuts down.

I'd suggest trying to cool down the inside of your case a bit more - add an extra fan or two to get the warm air out. If the card you have is nVidia there is a gadget that tells you the temperature of your card - you can find it on Microsoft's Win 7 gadgets page. I'm not sure if there's a similar gadget for Radeons.

If the card is overheating, that gadget will show the operating temp, and give you an idea of what you may need to do (and it's free)

My pc turns off automatically when iam working on it. its a desktop intel mother board with i3 2nd gen processor 2100 4gb dynet ram 500gb hdd, tell me what is the relative problem

first possibility - Your system is pulling too much power from your power supply while running that game. Your graphics card is probably pulling too much power and your PS isn't a high enough wattage.

second possibility - Your processor is overheating due to the increase load on it. This can happen if your cooling is insufficient or if your heat sync is a poor stock quality. Are all your fans running? If your card was overheating you would only get graphic failures but the PC would still be running.

Start by downloading a temperature monitoring program for your computer and run it while you run the game. see how hot your processor gets. Find online the normal range of your processor is and compare it with you are recording. If you aren't hitting any high temps then refer to the first possibility.

Hi i my computer suddenly started to shutdown and turn on again after a fev seconds.some times it goes in to windows but soon after has wrked for over a year and this was a home built...

Try these....
Overheating problem in your PROCESSOR!
Check the temp in your BiOS and the setting of your processor!
Check also the power supply and upgrade it to hifgher wattage!
Clean your processor HEAT SiNK, dust and dirt might have acumulated!
Check the HEAT sink position, if its flatly fitted on top of procie, and scrape the old silicon paste between ur proci and heat sink and put a NEW ONE!

Encountered this kind of prob.. the prob is in the PSU unit(Power Supply Unit)!

These might help you!

Air temp indicator only reads temps below 50 degrees

Ambient air temp sensor could be the cause. Normally located in front grille area.

One of collegues pc keeps restarting randomly. The page goes black and then it restarts and login window comes up. Cable all seems fine. It's an HP machine, Windows XP SP3, 2GB RAM, Interl Core 2 Duo...

Only 2 possible reasons seem to be there either. Pull out the RAM From it slots blow it properly and re-install the RAM. Get a third party software for monitoring system heat. Monitor it and if processor heat going above normal then install one more fan to it.

I have an AMD Athlon FX 2 dual processor and am using Core Temp to monitor the temps of which are posting 44 to 50 while using my computer. Is this normal?

I believe normal temperatures range from 41 to 95. At least from this laptop that is running a dual processor:

Also somebody else here had the same type of question:

From my experience as long as its not running over 100 then you'll be fine. If you have any doubts about your computer overheating you can always apply more compound to the heatsink and also buy a bigger one where the fan runs faster to keep things cooler inside of the case and always remember to have the side doors on as well.
