Reset on shutdown!

by kindorz / July 13, 2013 8:56 AM PDT

Everytime I try to shut down my computer, it just resets!

I've heard updating your bios works but I for the love of god can't find it.

If this was indeed that then the issue would have existed for years. Once in a while you get a new tech that thinks the cure is the bios of a recent issue.

More story is needed such as "It worked until I formatted and install Windows clean."

Recently I bought a HD 7750 but decided it was too slow. Then I went out and bought a Antec 500W psu and an HD 7770.

After installing the 7770, the fan speed idles around 74C and the load of the GPU is about 99 idle. Trying to play games, I get significantly less fps than the 7750. Anyone know why?

my apu is A8 3850.

I uninstalled my old drivers and installed ATI 12.6.

The temperatures are idle at 35C now. Everything is fine. Except that CCC doesn't work and my computer goes out of wack. Things won't open etc.

If I upgrade my drivers higher, the same thing happens again and I get 74C and 99 idle load.

However, if I just uninstall everything ATI, everything works fine. It's just that i'm out the control center.

This is where the problem started because I couldnt run the gpu with a driver. So i just returned it and then i started using my integrated again. This is where I'm at right now

In reply to: well

Time to return the parts that seem defective or bad drivers. You did that and now you need to get with the machine's maker to return what else is causing an issue. Even if it's bad Windows install instructions.

It's a shame but here we are at 2 decades and folks are still battling driver issues. Makes you wonder how this will end.
