By lowering the WATTS from 550 down to 300, you may find the P.C. starts shutting down or restarting, as it does not have enough power to operate everything inside the tower. You need to add up all the WATTS on the different things running on power ( i.e. Motherboard, Graphics Card, RAM, Fans, Sound Card,USB plug-ins, HDD, CD/DVD drive). You maybe not have all listed but by lowering the power might be not worth it to be honest.

Ptowreplaced power supply worked 2 days now well not power up aagain


It is possible that you might be overloading your power supply unit. Go to this website and calculate how many watts you need for your system. You just have to select the components in your system from the drop down menus and it will calculate your power requirement.

After getting your power requirement (in Watts), replace your power supply with a unit rated at least the recommended PSU wattage. Also note that cheap power supplies usually do not reflect the true wattage output on their labels. Try to get a power supply unit from reputable PSU manufacturers like Antec, Coolermaster, Thermaltake or Corsair.

I have a Gigabyte GA-81945GZME-RH motherboard that needs a new graphics card was wondering will ATI Radeon 5570 1GB PCI-E graphics card work. Thanks for any help you can give me.


The motherboard has a PCI-E slot, so the Radeon card will fit. You might need to upgrade your power supply, as a 400-watt supply is recommended on AMD's site for this card. Otherwise you shouldn't have any problems with the new card.

The power supple won't start up with the main plug on the motherboard installed . I have tested the power supply with a power supply tester and it runs fine by itself


Hello there..

What you need to do to give your power supply a better test is to connect one of its power cables to a hard drive. Some power supplies will not start up unless there is a sufficient electrical load on them. I have a tester that has, essentially, the paper clip test, but it has a ceramic resistor to provide a load to the power supply.

Also, if the motherboard touches the case somewhere, where it is not suppose to be touching, it is grounding the unit through the computer case, and will also result in the power supply not working if plugged in. Really hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Best regards
Andrea

The following power supply unit (PSU) should work just right, however, it will not fit in a company branded case such as HP, Compaq, Gateway, Dell, etc. sine they all use proprietary parts and cases:

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series


HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Gigabyte GA-8IPEI000 pro-g DDR2?


Sorry your board does not support DDR2 memory. The dimm slots that you mention above are only showing you which slot is number one & number two. This does not mean the memory is DDR2. See your spec's at this link.
