I dunno if you remember me but here is my previous thread with the problem i have: http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=65226
Well i have installed a Antec 430W True power PS, and as you might guess it, I'm still having the problem. So what I wanna know is if there are any other suggestion out there by my fellow Bf1942 players. Help me brainstorm this cuz its driving me nuts.
Thanks for reading it.
try some new drivers or something im stuped:confused: :cool:
i got all the latest drivers installed already
im gonna tosh this thing out of the window if it dont get fixed soon.
In reply check your power manager settings in windows and in your bios, I personally disable all power manager features.
O and if that doesn't help then there is an electrical short in ur PC somewhere. And before anyone says I don't know what I'm talking about, I have custome built, paint, and repair PC's for a living.

where are the power manager settings in windows and how can i find out where the electrical short is then??
BTW, it was also suggested to me that my CPU might shot off, cuz of over heating....is this possible?
Thanks for the help
Overheating is a very high possibility. And most electrical shorts result from the motherboard from minute cracks to broken circuitry.How many fans you goy?, and do you have the right processor fan?
Some cracks on MBs are so small I have had to use a magnifying glass to find them along with gentle bends of the MB over a bright lite.
I would say that you are over heating and the Bios is set to shut you down when it passes a certain threshold. Some older bios don't take into consideration that many of the newer cpus are actually designed to operate at higher temps. Hell I would never have dreamed of letting my old Celeron run at 50C but my Athlon xp 2100 is more than comfortable at that temp. Take a look in the bios and see if the thermal failsafes are on. If they are you can disable them or simply adjust them to higher values. A 950 is the old Tbird core those normally run @45C idle up to 55C load. I'd say if you're going over 60C than you could expect big problems but it might be as simple as your MB being set to turn off at 50 or 55C. You can take a look at this review here for an idea of temp numbers it's a little old but it's closer to your cpu than most reviews these days. Socket A HSF roundup Good luck
