Problem:
- My graphic driver before was via/s3g unichrome pro igp for the integraded video card.
- I installed geforce 210 (asus en210 silent). Installation went well.

- Now, my pc hangs every time I play video game (games that I used to play before I installed the new video card). It usually hangs after 30mins - 1hr during my gameplay.

------
Solutions I tried:
- Updated nvidia driver.
- Performed checkdisk.
- Previous graphic driver (via/s3g unichrome pro igp) was automatically disabled after the geforce 210 installation.
- Lowered hardware acceleration. (Display properties > settings > advanced > troubleshoot)
- Placed my cpu on a much cooler place.
--------------------------------------
Here are some of my pc infos.

What are the other specs of the computer?

It could be a PSU issue.

Otherwise those silent graphics cards can overheat pretty easily so I'd check temp gauges and fan speeds.

Hi there,

1. Please use HWMonitor to determine the system temperatures and post them (a screenshot) here.

2. Make/Model no. of your PSU? (remove the side panel, check the sticker on the PSU)

The Geforce 210's PSU requirement: 300 Watt Power Supply (with 18A on the +12V Rail)

3.

Yep, you're right. They only have a heat sink, unlike standard cards which also have a cooling fan on it.

Hello,
