Freeze on all games.Guess it's hardware...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey brothers,as title says,i have a technical problem.

At all games,paradise city,cod 1 etc. etc. i have freezes.

I am pwning the heck outta germans,and that freeze comes and f***s the fun up and i have to open windows task manager to close cod.This applies for all games (except pwning the heck outta germans part).

I have 169.21 WHQL driver for winxp 32bit,what i am using atm.

What could i do to fix this?Is it hardware?Can i test my GPU at anywhere-any program?Thanks.

Note:I dont have a friend with a pci-e x16 slotted pc so do not tell me to test on other pc,please.

PSU....... how many amps on the 12v rail.....? run ATI tool stress the card see if it craps out

28A is the minimum (i think )

try new drivers....im on 174.74 they are great i had problems playing COH on 169.25 but the update sorted it

palit hasnt released more than 169.32 yet,and other companies' wont install.Still i will try both stressing the card and the new drivers.

12v on 12v rail.Normal.I monitored them all,they are all normal.

I am running a virus scan atm,i will tell ya if it finds anything.

what about the PSU......? did it come with the case


check the sticker on the side of the power supply it will state there how many Amps u are getting on the 12v.....u may be getting 12v but it may not be delivering enough Amps
