Comp Falls Asleep In CS:S

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm posting this on behalf of my friend as I need some more opinions on what the problem could be.

He recently had a P4 3.0 ghz, 7900 GT, 400 Watt Antec PSU rig. Now he upgraded to a Q6600, 9600 GT, and kept the psu.

When hes playing CS:S, his computer will go into like a standby sleep mode. He has to click his mouse to get it out of it. Theres no error codes or anything like that leading up to this.

It does not do this in CoD4 and Crysis, but it also did this with his old parts too in CS:S only.

What do you guys think it could be? Him and I were thinking it's possibly the psu, but wouldn't the comp just power off completely? Why is it only doing it in CS:S.

Sounds like a driver error to me. Its hard to tell this is very strange....

It COULD be the PSU, you said old parts, what exactly did he replace? Also are you sure hes running the latest drivers? And third, if he replaced his motherboard did he reinstall windows?

He replaced the CPU, Mobo, RAM, GPU & case.

He says hes running the latest drivers.

He reinstalled Windows.

I'm thinking it's a psu. Hes gonna go out tomorrow and get a new one.

Only thing really left in that case that would cause that is the PSU, unless its some software that he always installs that causes it.

i would check and see if there is something enabled in bios that has to do with power management, and disable it.

No way an old PSU that used to be rated at 400w can handle that rig. The system is probably asking for about 250-300 watts during a game.

You can start by doing all the software checks (drivers and etc) but I think it's a PSU problem.
