Graphics Card Problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Basically i have the following system:

Intel Pentium G6950
OCZ Gold 2GB RAM
Gigabyte H55M-S2H Mother Board
Octigen 500W PSU
Gigabyte Radeon HD 4670 512MB Graphics Card
1x 500GB HDD
1x 1TB HDD
1x 40GB HDD

The problem that i have got is that ever since i bought the computer it always seemed to turn its self off and back on again randomly, but yesterday i took out the graphics card and the problem went away so i put the graphics card in the second PCI-E slot and had no problems, so i put the card back in to the first PCI-E slot and the problem returned.

Could anyone tell me what the issue could be. Thanks

Sounds like a power problem. What causes the crash? If it only crashes under heavy graphics load you need a new psu.

Unstable power or memory


Run memtest, if it passes replace the psu

I had the same problem from a old psu and replaced and no more restarts

Just run MemTest and found no errors and i don't think its the PSU because i swapped it from a spare working computer last night. The problem only occurs when the graphics card is in the full speed PCI-E Slot.

Just had another look today and noticed that the voltage for my RAM should be 1.65V. So i looked in the Bios and the DDR Voltage was set to 1.50V so i set it to the correct voltage and thats it problem solved.
