Hi there, my computer keeps freezing and restarting and such. Its some kind of problem about my gfx card. Here is my computer specs-
Athlon 64 3000+
768mb ram (bought all crucial ram to make sure this wasnt the problem)
Old 30GB HDD (possibly the problem?)
Radeon 9700 (pro? Everything says its a pro, but i bought it from ebay as a non pro)
Abit av8 3rd eye
400w power supply that came with my icute case.
Latest ATI drivers (have tried it with older drivers but no difference exept some textures on games didnt work)
I was testing this with the game F.E.A.R, whenever i ask my graphics card to do something that requires more from it the computer restarts. I eventually got fear working okish but the resolution was 640x480 and i had to underclock my gfx card by setting the clock speed to the "defaults" on radeonator.
It could be the power, because when i get my gfx card to do something harder (surely it will use more power at these times) it just re-starts.
I formatted my HDD because of this but its just worse now, everything i download is corrupted?! Maybe my HDD is corrupt and causing all these problems?
I am ordering a new IDE HDD as the SATA i bought from novatech didn't work!
Any help appriciated!
