How to fix restarting problem on Asus desktop comptuer?


Tyler
It could be a marginal power supply, gaming puts more requirement, processing power, therefore more power is required by the CPU and the graphics card. And of you are overclocking then it needs even more power and generates more heat. Do you have a video card installed or just using the integrated video?
Another possibility is temperature threshold setting in the BIOS or some control panel tool run within Windows. If the threshold is set too low, the computer will turn off to protect the CPU. It may have something to do with the fan settings. Quiet setting for fans may prevent them from going full speed to cool things down.
Try to run a system monitor tool to see how its handling the extra gaming load.

During gamming im getting freezing and flashing yellow light, on the power button.


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Miles Gordon.

This is a typical overheating problem. See, your computer heats up when playing games, in the first 5-10minutes. As the components get warmer they increase the air tempreature in your computer chassis. This heated air is insufficient to cool your Processor and Graphics card, therefore resulting in a Blue Screen of Death known as BSOD.

You are using the GTS240 Graphics card, it is a tiny tot so go easy on the detail settings.
Use the following settings:
Resolution: 1920x1080 if your LCD display supports it.
Anti-Aliasing: off
Anisotropic filtering: off
Set the rest to medium or low.

You will have to play arounf with the other detail settings depending on playability. If it's jittery set it to a lower detail setting.

Install 120mm or 140mm fans in your computer chassis if possible. You should at least have one installed on the side panel to provide freash cool air to the graphics card, processor and power delivery system ,MOSFETs. With an additional 120mm fan installed at the rear of the chassis to exhaust heated air.

Your power supply should be rated for at least 500Watts continuous power output, since the core i7 processor is rather power hungry.

Click here to download Hardware Monitor, to check your tempreatures. Click download now, save the file to your computer and install it.

Your processor temp, should be nothing higher than 70degrees C and the Graphics card nothing higher than 75degrees C.

Take care!

Hello, I am the technician that you be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Jeffery.

Yes you are quite correct, your upgraded computer system is giving off a large amount of heat, that graphics upgrade is quite substantial.

See these off the shelf PC's from manufactures really don't take the computer gamer's needs into account with regards to cooling. Gaming gear gives off a whole bunch of heat and this heat as you have come to find needs to be expelled quite quickly for a stable and cool gaming computer system.

Here are two possible solutions for this problem:
Option 1.) Installing cooling into the side panel is the easiest, most effective way of cooling your computer's components. I would reccomend installing at least two 120mm fans. What you do is set the one so that the fans hub would sits directly above the CPU. This fan would therefore provide freash cool air from outside the chassis to your CPU cooler.
The second fan would be installed so that the hub sits slightly below the Circuit Board (PCB) of the Graphics card. This fan would therefore provide freash cool air from outside the chassis to your Graphics card. Be sure to check that the fan, once installed over the Graphics card clears the actual graphics card once the side panel is slid closed.
You will need to measure and drill 4 holes for each fan, and then cut out the metal in the middle for air to pass through the chassis side panel. One can buy 120mm fan grills to protect anything large from touching the fan blades, it also makes the mod look smart and finished off. They are bought in crome or black finish. Check your computer store.

Now that the intake is sorted your will need to work on a suitable spot to install exhaust fans. Some-times there is enough space around the rear 80mm fan to drill and fit a 120mm fan. Again you will need to drill 4 holes and cut away the middle of the chassis for the air to pass through the chassis. You will need to check if this option is available to you. Another exhaust option is the top of the chassis for natural convection currents (hot air rising), usually install either 1 or 2 120mm fans depending on the position of the Power Supply, as some are fitted on the top and others on the bottom.
Visit your local computer store for fan mounting; kits, ideas, available fan speeds and airflow rates, purchase fans.

Option 2.) Involves the purchase of a suitable gaming computer chassis. These would be better suited to your gaming setup/needs and have lot's of fan install points. You would want to get one, if you so choose that offers 120mm or 140mm fan mounting options. Usually offering in excess of 3 mounting points. Giving your computer components freash air, thereby decreasing tempreature, increasing performance, reliability and longevity.
There are lot of diffent sizes and styles available.

I would reccomend either Cooler Master 690 series or Corsair.

Take care!

Try reinstalling the drivers from AMD. If that doesn't help the problem, use a program like GPU-Z to monitor the temperature of the graphics card. If a graphics card overheats, it will shut the computer down giving a blue screen.
If it ends up it is overheating, try taking the side of the computer while you're playing a game or installing another fan.

Texture Freezing


download a GPU monitoring tool here.. http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/

check the temps for your video card... if it exceeds 55-60 degrees celcius. its probably heating up. try to upgrade the GPU cooling. "Palit, inno3d, galaxy" these brands usually has crappy cooling systems for their cards. Plus, the nvidia 9800 series is known to produce alot of heat.

I've had a similar problem like yours... I've had a 9800GT inno3d.. it has a crappy cooling system to i had to buy it a zalman graphics card cooling system. It solved the problem...

Lagging bad on internet low FPS rate


Lag problems wont be anything to do with your monitor, more driver problems or an incompatibility with your new card. Try getting up to date drivers and contact their tech support (the graphics card) and give them your system spec. They will advise if the card is not compatible. This is not about the Windows version, but more about your RAM/HARD Drive speeds.

Also, if your PC had, prior to this install an on-board graphics chip then this can cause problems such as this which cannot often be fixed - try ensuring the onboard graphics is switched off on the BIOS if you can.

Fan noise


I was having the same problem and I just fixed it yesterday. You will never guess what was causing the loud fan noise.... give up? the NVIDIA Quadro Graphics Cards that were in there...... I bought an ATI Radeon 3870 yesterday popped it in, installed the drivers, and now my computer does not sound like an airplane anymore....... this card is amazing and its on newegg now for 80 bucks..... itds GDD4 as well and the games look better than a playstation 3........ this card also improved my overall system performance drastically.....
