Hello Everyone I am new to this site (as obviously stated above).
I have a few questions. Maybe someone can help. A few months ago I built a new computer, being tried of my old Dell. Well everything is fine and well for a while, but recently my computer has been restarting at random times. It restarts after a few minutes, after a few hours, when playing games, when doing nothing at all. But usually when playing games. All of my drivers are updated. I unistalled and reinstalled all my devices. My Windows is up to date.
I am thinking it might be my power supply I have a 420w Power Supply. I am not sure about how much that can support but here are some things I have hooked up to it. I have three Hardrives, 120g 120g, 200g. A DVD burner. 2 80 mm Fans. Radeon 9800 XT. 2 UV Cold Cath Bulbs (hooked up to one inverter). Vantec Spectrum Fan Card. I am not sure if that is too much I do not know too much about that area.
If anyone has any Ideas, please contribute them!
Also one more thing. When I check under Device Manager and I expand Display Adapters, I see Two Radeon 9800 XT, Except one is listed as a secondary. That might be it. Everytime I reinstall my card or drivers it is still there. It just detects the second card and installs the drivers Automatically. I can disable it, but I would like to solve this problem. I have physically removed the card and put a different one in. A GeForce, and that one worked fine, It only showed up once. However, Even when using that card it still restarts regardless. EVeything just messed at once. If you have had the patience to read through all of this then I allready thank you. If you can help me fix any of this I will name my first born child after you! Thanks in advance for your time!
Again if you need any more information please let me know, screen shots or system specs etc.
