    Sometimes games freeze, pc restarts, shortcuts don't appear on the screen. Could there be a problem with PSU overload? I have a 500w psu. How can i measure the power load of my PSU?

Asus overheating my gpu

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.
If you have a dedicated video card installed you should have a 550W power supply.

Hello Huekycanada

You have to check the booster element what amp they are drawing there are three elements if only two are working it will still goes up to 72C may be it need longer time to get there. Secondly I would check the in coming water from your hot water tank it should be 60C at the machine , To check this incoming water temperature the best way is checking the temp. at the sink nearest to the dishwasher. 9 out of 10 I do find this is the main cause of the problem ( the in coming water temp is too low)

All the best, Dickson

This could be a motherboard issue. Make sure the screen isn't just shutting off after 15-30 minutes. If you hear no fans or anything else running, I would say do a laptop craft project. They are very enjoyable!

I suggest that you get an additional cooling fan, just for your video card, as San Andreas is a highly complex game that utilizes the video gpu very hard. Oblivion is another game which does the same thing. Also, I would look at getting a seperate case cooler, the more fresh air you can get into the case, the cooler things will be.

My graphics card is xfx 8600 gts my card problem is when i start my pc the display logo of my m/b is crash color and red boxes on the screen then my pc restart when system reach windows. So please help me

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Screen freezes and shows lots of lines - must restart everything. This is happening more often.

This can be memory, CPU, Hard drive, or graphics card, or overheating.

To check the memory, hdd, and cpu you can download the ultimate boot cd UBCD Burn it to a disc then boot to it. Use the utilities on it to test your components.

To check and track your temps you can download HWMonitor keep this running until it crashes. Once it does, reboot then open it again. The program will show you the max that the cpu and gpu reached in temp. gpu ovr 60C is usually starting to overheat. CPU over 50-60C (unless its a core 2 duo or quad then its 80C) is overheating.

To help solve overheating buy a cooling pad and have the thermal paste/pads replaced on the cpu and gpu.

If the problem persists then there is a big possibility that your gpu is heating up to much and the motherboard is starting to lose the solder joints to it.

My Gateway laptop p-7805u Intel Duo P8400 @2.26GHz beeps sporadically. How do I know what the problem is? I have a temperature indicator and it beeps anywhere from GPU 45 to 49C, Core 0 59 to 80C and...

if the bios checks the GPU and is set to warn when it is higher than 45 you can have the problem you say. most gpus idle aroundn 50C but when used for games or lots of motion can reach 60C. adjust the monitor to above 60C if you can.

the CPU can but should not reach 80-86C this is a high level and dangerous. you will want to see why your system is not gettign sufficiant air flow. Many of the Duos have heat issues and the designs of the laptops are not enough. A cooling pad is a welcome investment
