Hello everyone, I am new to forums and have always relied on others to fix things for me, this seems like a much better option

I recently had a new vid card installed, an nvdia9800 gt . also had to put in a new power supply supply to support it. When my desk top is idle for 20 minutes or so it freezes. I can use my mouse but cannot open anything and have to manually restart. If I am idle in a game or program I have no trouble. My screen saver is diabled, but makes no difference. PLease help I am tired of having to keep turning my computer off when I leave the room, as I cannot shut it down the proper way when it freezes up.

Thank you

I have the exact same problem! I have to keep counter strike (a game) running 24/7 so my computer doesn't lock up. I also put in a new power supply so that might be the problem. Someone help!
