post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Idk where this post should go cause idk wahts wrong however i think it is the power supply. Everytime i get 5-10 minutes or so into a game my comp goes into power save mode and won't get out of it. I have checked my comp for any type of setting regarding the power save mode and nothing has been found. My comp gets up to 65 degrees c. I would really appreciate any advice you all have.
Thnx, Cole

Sounds like it's shutting down from heat... of course that is a really tiny power supply... you may want to get a beefier one, it might be pulling to much power.

350 watts?? Yeah... that won't even run a couple lightbulbs. I would agree that a bigger PSU will probably fix your problems... it definitely sounds like a psu problem. Good luck man!

Your PC is shutting down either because your CPU is getting too hot or because your PSU isn't powerful enough. Clean the dust out, increase airflow, reseat CPU heatsink, add fans, etc.

I suggest replacing your PSU with one of these. Cheap, powerful, reliable.
