Okay so basically I just had a new rig built. I'm having a problem where I start playing a game (the two games I've played so far are STALKER and Fallout 3) and I play for about 15 minutes, and then suddenly my monitor goes into power save mode and I can't get back to the desktop or anything. I have to resort to restarting the machine with the button on the tower.

Anyway, I want to know what the fuck is causing this and how I can fix it without having to call up a technician and pay him $100 an hour to fix it.

Specs are as follows:

nvidia 9800GTX+
4GB of RAM
Three 320gb HDDs
Asus P5N-D Motherboard
Intel Quad Core 2.33GHz
800W power supply.

I'm not sure what else could be helpful to you guys in terms of information. There's a total of seven fans inside the computer, so it's definately not overheating.

If you guys could help me with this problem, that'd be great.


Cheers,

The Doc.

You tried disabling all power saving options in windows/bios?

Nevermind guys. I opened the tower a short while ago to find that a wire was stopping the fan on my GFX card from moving. So it was overheating and crashing the computer. All fixed now.

Cheers.
