Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. First off, I recently bought an asus h61 m-e motherboard, a second-hand core i5 3470 and an astrum power 450 psu (which I was assured was 450 W, but the casing said '210 W max output,' together with 2gb ddr3 ram I had with a previous mobo. Anyway, I assembled it the other day, and whenever I play a game up to a certain point or just boot up the pc for a couple seconds, the pc will lock up, freeze and multi-coloured lines appear on the screen with a loudish static-like buzz coming from the speakers. For now I'm only running the pc with the integrated gpu of the i5. I'm not sure what the problem could be, since I took the ram card and put it in the other slot, checked my internal connections etc. But strangely, when I took it to a computer store to have it checked, It didn't freeze, playing well past the point in the particular video game (splinter cell double agent,) where it normally crashed. The only different thing at the store was the the cover was removed and they connected a different dvd rom since myn was faulty. Oh, and no speakers were connected to the pc. I'd really like some suggestions as to what the problem could be. Thanx in advance.
