I'm not german! Heh, its just a reference to the VW commercials Oh wait, actually i just realized, i actually AM german. Heh, my mom told me over the weekend that her grandmother was actually full blooded german. Her OTHER grandmother was full blooded Polish, and her grandfather was 7/8 Indian. So i have 2 bloodlines that are alcoholics and 1 that cant hold it

Ah yes, the random thoughts of an IT guy waiting for the 5 o'clock buzzer to go off.

OK enough German talk! Hehe, well my computer just froze while trying to put videos together using Movie Maker.

A continuous beep was solid until I rebooted. I'm reading it means my CPU is overheating, but how can that be @ 120F?

All depends on what the threshhold is set at.

I know it's not 120F, these issues just started recently. Another website it's MB failure or PSU failure. PSU failure seems better *prays*

Use a online PSU calculator. But 120F is still very high for a temp. Even under load i dont hit that with stock coolers.

Use tha calc to see if it has been over taxed. Also try a different PSU to be sure.

would a PSU be the source of that kind of problem?

If yes then i would surmise that the PSU is failing now... even though it was probably ok a while ago...

Hmm, the max temperature for a cpu should be around 149F. 120F is not that hot, according to this chart: Maximum CPU Temperature | Hardware Secrets my CPU's max temp is 65C which is 149F.

I have a 500 Watt FSP Group PSU, is there any way I can test the stability of it? I really don't have a couple hundred dollars to just throw out on this computer crap.. I have a JEEP, that's a lot more fun then computers. Less problems too.. kinda

Thanks

How about I just end all this non sense and get rid of the 7900 gtx and upgrade to a 8800 gt like you guys recommended last time I posted about this? It's obviously dying if I'm seeing dots all over. And it craps out in games and anything video related. Perhaps it's something stupid, I can list it on ebay some fool will buy it.

I was getting a blue screen from my X-FI Sound card (second time this happened) so instead of messing with it, I sold it on Ebay and it worked for that person apparently.

Maybe AMD released a driver to make Nvidia act ******?

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDD4 GeForce 8800GT XXX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards I might get that. Anyone have good luck with XFX? Since I owned every other brand.
