  1. the OP went out the window, someone found a driver issue and then someone else suggested PSU. anyway, Thats all nice but as I said before it runs off the motherboard. I figure what you were saying still applies but in a different way, perhaps the mobo simply cannot give the card the power it needs, not enough power running through the motherboard for it?, your thoughts... also if anyone else knows anything about the driver problem spotted before can they enlighten me as to whats going on... thx
  2. Heat is usualy 40-50 degrees celcius. And iv only had my computer for just over half a year so the warranty isnt an issue, it wasnt so bad on xp, on windows 7 however its a different story. also it draws power from the motherboard, there is no power conection on the card itself. here is a link to the cards Specs
  3. Thanks but im not willing to persue it that far, im already getting a new card anyway, id just like to be able to sell the old one on. If its any more help i got information from a crash report that looked to be a bit more in depth (or not, i really dont know what im on about so, yea): Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: nvcplui.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 4b4bf778 Fault Module Name: nvd3dumx.dll Fault Module Version: Fault Module Timestamp: 4b4c09b1 Exception Code: c000041d Exception Offset: 00000000003efa61 OS Version: 6.1.7600.

This happened after trying to play garrysmod. any ideas?
  4. Hi all. Iv been having some trouble with my GPU, a Palit 9800gt 512mb green edition. It has always been troublesome whenever a switch to or from a 3d application has been made, but recently i installed windows 7 64bit and it has been crashing even in 2d games such as world of goo. can someone help me. i have installed 3 different drivers so far and none of them has made a difference. i will list my system specs and the details of my most recent error message bellow. thanks. Specs: CPU: intel C2D E7500, 2.93ghz, OC MOBO: Gigabyte EP45-UD3L PSU: Coolermaster 500w RAM: Corsair XMS2 800mhz, 2gb HDD: Samsung spinpoint F1, 1TB GPU: Palit Nvidia 9800gt, 512mb, green edition Error details: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7600.

  5. Hey all. Im having trouble with my external HDD. its a WD My Passport. Every time i go to open it in My Computer it brings up the "Open With" window. Please help.
  6. a core i7 system would be an idea. ASUS makes good mobos for just about anything so your set there. Graphics is a touchy subject with direct-x11 cards just starting to appear, waiting may be a good idea to see which is best for what you want... does 8Gb RAM make a major increase in performance? to me it sounds a little excesive but thats just me. if you plan on having an SLI system, a good case can make all the difference between sweet graphics and a melted GPU so choose wisely. other than that you might want to consider a solid state drive or two, and maybe an ordinary 1Tb for things like documents, media and backups.
  7. i guess it would be kinda fun, but the extra cash could go towards another expected hot release...
  8. OK... to start with, people will want to play songs they know, both games have a fair variety so its up to you. More people seem to like guitar hero as it was here first. both have controllers that will break if overhandled, and i have heard people say that guitar hero has less response problems. Xbox pro would be better, but if u really want to save, get an arcade. GH3 controllers will work on world tour and metallica, i wouldnt be to sure further down the path though, and world tour was the first GH to have more than just the guitar. Usualy you will need a controller to use the mic on GH, bear this in mind when thinking how many you will need (im guessing about 4). Im pretty sure that you get both ordinary video and component inputs on xbox, i would check if i were you however, just to make sure. you will only need a standard controller with GH to use the mic, other than this the drums and guitar are stand alone controllers, they dont need an xbox controller to work.
  9. i went looking, looks like the PSU could be the problem after all... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253195-33-radeon-3650 someone here rekons that if underclocking fixes the problem its usualy a PSU problem, other than that theres a lot of complaining about the drivers.
  10. back again, im still to do as ripken said, but i thought id add this error message incase anyone could tell me more Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078)
  11. hi all, i recently made the switch from nvidia to ATI with a HIS HD 3650 AGP graphics card. after playing IL2 1946 for a while i switched to playing dawn of war dark crusade. about 5 minutes into playing the screen froze and the whole computer became non-responsive. now it does this on all sorts of games, unless i use the ATI catalyst utility to underclock the core from its default running speed of 725Mhz to 595Mhz. I have had the card at default speed with the catalyst utility, and with the ATI overdrive disabled, it makes no difference. i am running a 300w PSU, which is the recomended minimum, could it be a power consumption problem. i also noticed that GPUz could not pick up a fan speed. i also think it could be driver related but i want other opinions before i decide what to do.

  14. Alot of the time they're what holds a PC together, unless your one of the inventive types that stick it all together in a drawer or sit the components on your bed (zenskas...) personaly, i love cases. They can quite your system, allow for extra cooling and be decorated to show of your rig. so to start it off Antec 900II, a good quality case that has good enough fans to be a wind tunnel, but doesnt take up your entire desk (or wherever you place it), and will look bueatiful nonetheless. The only let down is the need for tools, but the price seems compensation enough.
  15. Thanks people. ill chenk the links after this post. RRP was 30 AU$, so it was half price. I checked the other day and saw two fans in the back of my console, it confuses me and others that so many say its just a single fan setup. I probably need not worry me so much as i place the console and powerbrick in an open environment. btw, i've seen the sort of setup before, from memory it was a verticle stand, which id have to give a miss. I keep mine horizontal, so i dont knock it over by accident (or on purpose ).
