PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:windows xp professional
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
asus a7v8x-x
amd athlon 2.0 ghz
1gig 400mhz ddr ram
64mb geforce 4mx graphics
soundblaster live 5.1



My 400w psu failed so i replaced it with a new q-tech 400w psu only to find that my motherboard was dead ie. no beeps and no graphics and my microsoft keyboard was also dead! I replaced the m/board with a new asus a7v8x-x and 1gig of ram. I also wiped my hard drive and installed win xp professsional. It boots ok and xp loads and there do not seem to be any conflicts but every now and again it switches off ie. the psu and fans stop as though it has lost power although the green led on the board and the case stay on. I have ran the m/board and hdd on a table out of the case and the same thing happens. The cpu temp is fine and all the voltages seem fine. I would be most grateful for any help or suggestions. Thank you.Smiley

Hi,

Is the CPU fan seated flat on the CPU?

Hi,

Is the system going into power saving mode?

Try disabling the Power management features in the Control Panel under "Power Options". Set the "Power Schemes" to "Presentation", which should set all the options below to "Never".
