If you have a discrete graphics card, did you disable the onboard one via the BIOS? Have you looked at the system event log? To do that click Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer. Once in Event Viewer click on the system log and scroll through the entries looking for those flagged "error" to see if you can find hints as to where the problem could be.
Hi , i recently upgraded my HP 6710f for games. I put in a SSD, EVGA 560ti, 650watt PSU. The setup ran great for a couple of days. The stock processor was an Athlon II x 4. I had a deal on a Phenom II x 6 1045T so i grabbed it since it s the quickest CPU i can put on my mobo.
Here is the link to the Mobo specs:
When i installed the new CPU, on the first boot it freezed on the windows pasword screen. On second boot, i went as far as the loading of starcraft 2. After searching on forums, i went in the power management options in the control panel and put my CPU usage always at 100% even on 0%load. Since then it only freeze once every hour.(on a 3 week testing) When it freeze , only the mouse moves but the video is still. If i m in a game, the music will be stuck in an infinite loop of half a second but the mouse always work. Everytime it freeze, if a wait for about 40 seconds, it always unfreeze like nothing happenned, no error messages. I mean it NEVER really stopped working , and always the same amount of time of stopage. It does it at random times, eavy load in a game don t matter.
-i updated my bios and drivers
-My cpu meet the 95watt max of mobo specs
-Temperature of CPU and GPU normal.
-Enough power (650watt psu)
Don t know what to do . AMD Support is long to answer....
Thanks in advance.
