PC starting to crash after upgrading graphics card and ram
Posted on 2006-07-14
I recently upgraded my graphics card to a XFX 6800 Xtreme and also added a stick of 1gb ddr400 corsair ram added to a 256mb ddr400.
The PC has started to restart itself. This has happend both when playing Pro Evo Soccer 5 and also when running FL Studio. It had never happened prior to the upgrades.
I'm guessing it could be a powersupply issue as the geforce 6800 recommends 480 watts of power - my supply has 300.
although it seems to run fine. Running FL studio is not graphicly intensive, it just canes the processor.
I've done a microsoft memory test and it has come out fine with no errors.
thanks in advance
