Periodic lag/freezing and no max performance? - Page 14

post #131 of 152
Humm I am out of ideas other than to try a different psu, and I make no guarntees.

So if a new PSU is tried out and the problem persists, shall I just go " f*** it " and return the whole rig? I have the option to return the whole rig but I'm still a bit doubtful :S. I'm not sure if I can try out another PSU either.

Late reply sorry, know I bought the parts at a shop and had him put it together for me as I'm a noob with hardware.

There lies the problem, I already tested another PSU in his shop, but I didn't test it enough. I only tested NFS Most wanted 2012, and when I found the problem still, I thought that the PSU could be the problem so I told him to repack it in the box. After googling, it seems like people with even GTX 680 face issues with it. It would be awkward to ask to re-test the PSU especially if the PSU we tested isn't available, opening another PSU won't please him much and I doubt he'd agree to do that.
Sweeper101, so you're sure that it's the PSU?

Sweeper101, so you're sure that it's the PSU?

For someone that went to a computer shop.. bought parts and had them put it together..

a) I would expect it to work 100% with no problems
b) If there was a problem I would expect the computer shop to fix it for free or replace it or give my money back.

If you are not comfortable enough to build your own computer I would not be trying to troubleshoot it.
This really sucks for you and I would be pissed.

You mentioned that your computer micro freezes in windows.. (example.. the mouse freezes for a second while in the middle of moving it from point A to point B. this is not just happening in games....

this is not normal.. don't let anyone tell you that this is common for a computer that is running correctly.

You have done the following:

1) Re installed Windows
2) Updated All Drivers
= This tells me its not software....

you have also restored to the default BIOS config...

its gotta be hardware then... get your money back and go to a different shop.

We already replaced everything, except for Case, DVD burner and PSU. I should have asked him to change the whole case and save myself the headache it seems, sigh..
How do I restore Bios to default settings? Is restoring to default settings 100% safe or it could possibly cause problems?
EDIT : Is it a problem if I download drivers of a rev 1.0 mobo to a rev 1.1 mobo or vice versa? I didn't check my mobo revision before upgrading drivers.

when your computer is booting press delete to enter bios set up, once in bios it will tell you what button restores factory defaults like F10 or what it is press exit and save settings. and yes this is 100% safe but I am pretty sure you told me you did this already and if you didn't it could totally be your issue if your system is overclocked and you don't know it or a setting is incorrect

ok watch this video it is not the BIOS for your board but will give you an understanding of what and how bios works any questions let me know here or mail me.

your just looking to load the fail safe defaults and save them then exit.
