my dvd burner freezes after 10 minutes

  thejeepster 20:20 25 Feb 2006


just updated my processor to a AMD AthlonXP 3200+ Barton core cpu. my mother board is a gigabyte ga-7vt600 -l kt600 which also ment that i up-dated the ram to 1gig cp3200. when i installed it, we checked the cpu and ran it to the full and it was fine. when ever i've gone to burn a dvd, it freezes after 10 mins. i also rendered some film footage with adobe and that does the same. i never had this problem before the up-grade.

can you help

many thanks

could it be my graphics card- NVIDIA GeForce MX440 with AGP8X

Could be overheating ?. Is the power supply enough to run the upgrade ?

well, the power supply is 300w. when rendering, the cpu goes no higher that 51c. how can the power supply make the difference?

many thanks

I would say 300 is wat too low for your chip.

ATX12V Compliant
The new Pentium 4 and Athlon based processors draw a large amount of current from the power supply. To help provide this extra power a new ATX12V standard was developed. If you have one of these processors, make sure the power supply is ATX12V compliant. If you don't have a Pentium 4 or Athlon processor, an ATX12V compliant PSU is compatible with the ATX standard.

Mini-Tower 330-350W 15A,
Mid-Tower 350-380W 15A,
Full Tower 380-450W 18A,
Server Tower 450-550W 20A

WAY too low for your chip even ;-)
