|I have this problem since yesterday. I installed windows XP sp3, after that i got Windows 7 but the problem persists. |
I have everything updated (windows, directx, drivers). I know it's the card because i took it out and now i'm using the integrated gpu. The PC and the PSU are cleaned (no dust).
The card crashes my PC randomly, sometimes in games, sometimes with no other application opened. I made a furmark benchmark to stress the video card for about 5 minutes and rised the temp to 70C (that's normal) but then the PC crashed. I never encountered this problem before.
In idle the cpu and gpu stais at 40C, in full load max 55-60C.
When the PC crashes, the green light on the front of the case will blink at 1sec, so i have to power off the PSU and power it on again to be able to start the PC.
PSU: 420w (no-name)
Mobo: MSI K9N6SGM
GPU: nvidia 9600gt Gigabyte GV-NX96T512HP 512mb/256bit
CPU: Amd athlon64 x2 5400+
5V SB: 5.171V
I've tried with a smaller and older PSU 400W and i get the same result.
