i recently got a new gpu i.e. radeon HD 6770. This card is quite powerful and runs most of the recent games in at least middle range. Or so i thought..!
When i started the first game on this card, which is POP3 the two thrones, i was taken aback to see in two minutes the pc crashed and rebooted. I suspected overheating as the cpu was crammed and freed some space around it. i even opened the case and through ccc increased the fan speed upto 70%. And yes it ran PoP3 quite okay. But again, when i started playing Dragon age origins, the crashing commenced. What is baffeling that the whole time ccc never showed the temperature reach upto 55C!
i am really annoyed with this and will appreciate any help offfered...:sad:
i am trying to upgrade the gpu drivers by applying hotfix upgrade of ati but i am not sure it will work...
My humble system specs are...
intel dual core 1.6 GHz processor
3 gb ddr2 ram
windows XP 32 bit
and as said above, ati Radeon HD 6770 gpu, ddr5 1 GB memory.
