Computer shutting off when gaming? - Page 3

post #21 of 56
650w should be good for your rig , if its a no name brand psu it probably has more like 450w .

Either your psu or the 480's drivers are conflicting with the old ati drivers .. use driver sweeper to remove all exsisiting drivers and reinstall the new ones .

If that doesnt work , its your psu .

What old ATI drivers ? I never had an ATI

I found this when playing look at the voltages

0.9v is when its on idle , start a game and leave gpu-z open and see what the max VID is .

So you cant play any game at all ? it just crashes ?

Bullcrap. He needs to run d riversweep snd clean up the drivers then re install ideas latest drivers. Next download a GPU temp program and run a stress test like furmark to see what happens and watch temps. The card may be overheating. To diagnose a computer problem, always start with the easiest fix first and the most probable. Without any info, any novice pointing to the PSU is basically..... a novice.

I'm with (most)everone else on this, It has to be your PSU.

Also, someone said it could get up to 100c inside a case with bad airflow....I HIGHLY doubt this is anywhere near true, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen this kind of ambient temperatures inside their case.

You must have missed the parts where he said he never had an ATI card, and that he has an old, crappy PSU

Before you go around calling people novices, you should thoroughly read the thread.

just tried running furmark and as soon as it started my computer shut off and restarted
post #29 of 56
could be anything, to cancel things out try to re-seat your GPU or even in a different PCI slot; and re-connect the power to it or even try different connectors, delete drivers and use driversweep to clear everthing else and try using new drivers.. or even previous drivers i know that for some the latest drivers aren't always the best. these cards can take upto 100c without shutting off.

EDIT sorry i quickly read through previous posts... it could possibly be your CPU is bottlenecking your GPU hence allowing less power to it.

There's really no need for that kind of confrontational/denigrating talk here. Not to mention, the PSU IS by far the most likely culprit given the symptom of the PC shutting off as soon as one starts up gaming/3d apps.

The likelihood of a GPU driver issue causing the computer to just flat out shut off like he's talking about is about as high as your winning the lottery with one ticket. That is just not what happens from GPU driver issues.

99.9999% of the time, if your PC is shutting off completely, the cause of this will be one of the following:

1) The PSU is shutting down (i.e. one of its protection circuits is tripping, such as over-current or short-circuit protection), or
2) Some kind of temperature protection kicking on, such as is found on many motherboards for protecting the CPU or IOH or ICH.

The proper steps here are:
1) Reseat the card.
2) Check your Bios for any mobo temp protections being turned on, or set to a low temp.
3) Try the card in another machine, if there's an adequate one available.
4) Try another PSU.

BTW, the GPU-Z shot showing that the 12V rail has fallen to 11.55V ... is a fairly clear indicator that the PSU is struggling

Oh, lastly ... just looked up your PSU ... I don't know where you got the specs in the OP, but according to the model number in your sig (unless they used the same exact model number for >1 unit) ... the newegg listing for it shows that this unit has only one 6-pin PCI-Ex connector, and no 8-pin. So, how exactly are you powering this card, being that it requires an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector?

Also, if this is the same one, then this PSU was designed for pre-2005 computers (think Athlon XP), where the cpu ran on the 5V rail. That unit has only 26A TOTAL on the 12V circuit, but 46A on the 5V rail. This is a clear indication of it being built on an ancient platform.

I'm ready to proclaim w/99% certainty that you need a new PSU.
