Quite a Few Small Annoying Issues With Intel SLi System

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys im having a few issues with my computer under a few os's (vista ultimate x64 and xp pro)

Firstly i recently re cable managed my system(see in pic) when i added a second Gts 640 to the mix.

First issue: Systems switches off when playing games just as if ive hit the wall socket switch. then powers back up a minute or two later. Dont think its a power issue (see power supply in sig) any ideas?

Second issue: i cant boot into vista 64 without bsod. just wont boot into it at all and that is with 2gb of ram taken out (to eliminate the possible 4gb of ram bsod)

i installed vista with my processor set at stock and 2gb of ram at 800. I then set it to the settings which are solid in xp 3.2Ghz and ram at 1066 correct volts etc and it just will not boot without a bsod.

The system is a dual boot setup btw.

heres a picture of the system so that you can see the fan layout etc

Rep+ will be given for good informative help.thanks guys

If you have too much plugged into the same socket, with that rig you may actually be tripping it.

Your dual boot could have caused the problem, you may want to restart. Reinstall everything.

Have you tried resetting the CMOS? Also you may have to enable memory remaping for 4Gb. What I meant is you could be tripping the actual circuit in your house. Your computer consumes a large amount of energy, and if you have it, speaker, fans, etc on the same outlet you could be blowing it.

yeah its not tripping the house sockets its almost as if its a safety shutoff. my psu gets quite warm to the touch. warmer than my last enermax one anyway. could the psu be overheating?do they have a sensor that would switch them off if that were the case?and i cant get into vista with only 2gb of ram nevermind 4gb. i just dont know what would cause these issues
