When windows detects a problem with a hardware device it will shutdown so as not to harm the overall system. Since you mentioned the speaker connections for the modem, disconnect the speaker connections & run the system. (Understanding you need your modem to connect to the internet). Continue to use the system & see if it messes up & shuts down.
If your system still shuts down do this.
At boot up press the F8 key every two seconds until windows boot menu loads. Choose to disable automatic restart on system failure. This should generate and display the device causing the error. (I'm guessing it will be the modem).
Try to write down the error message & post it here.

Good Luck!

Mike

Can an EliteGroup 945GCT-M3 run a Geforce 440 GT graphics card?


AS it GEFORCE 440 requires (pci express) PCI-E 2.0 x 16 and your motherboard has 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, so you just need to check your motherboards manual if motherboards pci express is x16 2.0 if so, you can go for a upgrade and run. as I found itcan run nvidia geforce 8 or 9 on fixya.

Hello
I dont think there are any agp to pci ex riser cards.As pci e x16 is part of the motherboard circutry.

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

Hi,

You could put either of the graphics you mention in that motherboard providing you get the PCI-Express versions of them.

The motherboard will support a DDR3 structured graphics card in all cases at that is determined by the card not the motherboard as you get specific drivers for them which come included with the card or you can download the latest drivers from ATI or nVidia's support websites.

That motherboard will also support a gigabyte plus graphics card.



Kind regards.

Can i put nVIDIA geforce 8600 on my p5sd2-vm


Yes, your Asus motherboard will support the Nvidia GeForce 8600 PCI-Express graphics card.
However one thing you should consider. The 8600 card is SLI compatible but the motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot.
You will also need to make some changes in your bios.
In order to help you configure your system for a PCI-E graphics follow these steps.
1. Uninstall your current display driver software through windows control panel. Windows may ask you to restart your system, do not restart. Shut windows down which will shut off the system.
2. Unplug the power cable from the system & open your case.
3. Install your 8600 card. (Double check it is installed correctly & if needed has the extra power cord connected to the card.
4. Re-connect the power cord.
5. During boot up enter the bios by pressing the Delete key every couple seconds.
6. Once in the bios click the Advanced tab, see top of page 2-19 in your manual.
7. Than open Onboard Device Configuration
Open North Bridge Configuration, see page 2-22
Change Primary Graphics Adapter to [PCI-E]
Change Internal VGA to [Disable]
Change Share Memory Size to [Disable]

8. Save Bios changes & exit. Your system will auto restart.
Once windows has finished loading install the 8600 driver software & directX 10.0. You can also go to nVidia & download the latest software driver @

Gigabyte Nvidia 7300 GeForce PCI Express


I would look at two things first would be the video card, if it's overheating because of fan failure, that can cause crazy things like this. I would see if you can tell if the fan is working while the system is running. I would also remove the video card and clean it well with some canned air. I would also consider your power supply, make sure you have enough watts for that video card, I would clean it carefully with the air as well. My system started shutting down like that the other week, I checked my temps on my 8800 it was idling at 90 c, turns out my fan had crawled to a slow. I have now sent the card in for RMA as it's only 5 months old.

I hope this helps,

THanks for using FIxYa,
