Well i am back again i thought my computer was fixed but it really wasn't. My mom blew a breaker in the house which reset all of my BIOS setting and now i am having problems again. I sent it inot asus to fix it but all they said was the BIOS was messed up. I don't remember any of the settings that my friend changed to get it to work. I don't like chaning the settings like he did because one of the main changes was core volts. This makes my CPU run even hotter and i don't like that.

Heres what happens. My computer will boot up just fine. It will load windows just fine and i can log in. as soon as i try to play a game it shutsdown. It does not lock up but is just shutsdown as if some one had pulled the power cable out from the back. Like i said i have had the MOBO sent into the shop. The Power Supply has also been into the shop. And i also had the Graphics card into the shop is was making noise. I have taken the RAM from my computer and put it into another friends computer. The RAM works fine and it is compatable with my MOBO. I know it is only value RAM but my friend runs value RAM in his but his is CORSAIR and his works just fine. I had the same problem with a IDE HD so i am pritty sure that it is not the HDs.

what i have is
1x AMD XP Barton 3200+
1x ASUS A7V880
2x KVR400X64C3A
2x Wester Digital WD250JD
1x NEC CD/DVD burner
1X Sony Floppy Drive

I have been doing some research alot and the only thing i can find out was maybe it is not a true AMD XP Barton 3200+

[size=7]PLEASE GET BACK TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

i have been with out my computer for 2 weeks now and if i have to send it in then there goes another 2 weeks. If the MOBO is junk then i can start ordering my new computer parts and just get it over.

How long does it run before shutting down? When they tested the PS did they tell you what read outs they obtained?
It sounds like a PS problem. How many watts is your PS?

It can run for hours if i don't play a game. The PS is and ARROWCOOL 550wat. The PS is big enough for this computer. My friend run the same wats and has about 6 lights in his and just just fine.

You could have a bad transformer, or capacitor. Under load they fail. Do you know what your voltage is for the power output?

ok here is what i found out about the PS

AC INPUT 100~120Vac/200~240Vac 10/6A 60/50Hz

TOTAL OUTPUT DC OUTPUT

+3.3V +5V +12V -12V -5V 5VSB
350W 28A 28A 22A 0.8A 0.8A 2.5A MAX 200W
450W 28A 32A 26A 0.8A 0.8A 2.5A MAX 240W
550W 36A 36A 30A 0.8A 0.8A 2.5A MAX 280W

ok now i have an older computer up stairs. This computer is a AMD 2600+ with a ASUS A7N8X-LA MOBO.
(i tried to find info on it but i think it is Obsolete). anyways i put my new CPU into and it runs at the same FSB but the multiplier is at 11x instead of 12.5 and the CORE speed runes at 1830 Mhz (the 2600+ runs at 2080 Mhz) the MOBO also says my CPU is a 2500+.=

no i know i may not know every thing but even if this MOBO is old should my NEW CPU at least run as a 2600+. If i put the old 2600+ into my new computer i can do every thign and it does not lock up. I forgot to try to play some games with the new CPU in my old computer to see if it wors. I will try that later. Thanks for you quick responses so far i hope maybe i can get this problem solved soon.

I meant with diagnostic software what are the real time power readings. Is it putting out 3v or 3.8v, 12v or 13.5v, 5v or 6v?

i don't know the exact reading because now i can't get it to stay running long enough to get into the bios. But what is it was running they were all in range there was not any that were extreme high or low they ran around 3v, 12v, and 5v, but my Core was around 1.85 when it was running fine and not crashing.

i am really sceptical about the CPU. because of the way it acted in my older computer.

When Asus said that the BIOS was messed up, did they also say that they fixed it?

What does your friend have to say about the BIOS settings that he changed?

What happens when you reset the BIOS to default values?
