    Problem need advice!

    My PC keeps randomly switching off, giving me the EEEEH ORRRR EEEEEEH OORRRR NF7-S error noise. Could this be the PSU playing up? It's usually when i play a game, 2d or 3d and the gfx card isn't overclocked or anything. It's been stable for ages and i'm suddenly getting this bleedin' problem.

    Just about to buy a power supply but I could be totally wrong... help!


    Cheers,

    Nick

    I know I used to get it when overclocking too much, but temps are fine

    Regardless of reported temps set everything back to stock until you solve your problem. Do check the BIOS settings as there are things like throttling and temperature responses (inc auto-shutdown). Try stressing one part at a time with something like Sandra, ie stress the CPU then the RAM. See if you can determine what's causing instability. If you give a complete component listing we may be able to be more specific.

    I got this a shed load with my old pally. I put the warning and shut down thing up to 70 degrees and that seem to stop it, and keep my feet warm....

    You're running all that off of 350 watts!?! I think that is your problem.

    I had this. Go to soft menu and select default optimum settings (on the right hand side iirc) then set up your options, o/c etc should solve the problem

    Yeah try the power supply.....borrow a mates higher wattage one or go and get a Q-Tec for not much ££££'s they're better than the bog standard ones around. If you can afford it get an Antec or Globalwin.
