Few week ago I change my casing. Since then I can not played any games. I am not sure what is the problem, but everytime I played game it would run only couple of second (I tried several different games). I tried all setting on bios, update vga driver even installed new windows XP system but it did not help. Amazingly, I have no problem when using computer for regular activity like browsing internet, play music, ect. This make me really really sick.
If you all guys have any experience or idea what happend, please let me know. All suggestion will be appreciated.

What the [-peep-] happened with my [-peep-] computer ?

Are you trying to say you got a new case for your computer when you say "I change my casing". There are two possible issues that come to mind that might be causing your problem:

1. The New case has poor ventilation and overheating your GPU
2. The New case has a worse power supply unit than your old case.

I change to better one actually (chieftec) and this casing has more ventilation than old one.
And I do not thing that my new power supply is the problem, because I can do anything with computer without problem except played game.
So do you have any idea what is going on with my computer ?

Captian Obvious suggests the change of case dislodged something.
Check to ensure all components are properly mounted and fans are spinning!

Yes captain all is checked properly. The only this I haven't done is switch/change VGA. And one more info, it need only couple of second after game run to freeze.

It's not unheard of for Graphics cards to utilize more power wattage from the PSU when running under 3D-rendering. I've heard of such cases around here. Wait a minute, lemme check what wattage your using in your first post before I continue. BRB.

Unspecified wattage as I suspected. A better brand might generally be more efficient overall, but if You got like a 230 Watt from a "really good brand" that wouldn't beat a 460 watt from an "average brand" I wouldn't think.

Come to think of it, I've been a blind fool and actually forgot to ask him what his video chipset was, and I gave him all that babbling about the PSU assuming he bought a brnad new Graphics card. So.......


DenoX: What IS your current Graphics card? THat will help out alot to know this information.

Hi,

strange problem you have!
Let's think about it for a moment: the main difference between normal browsing etc. and playing games is that your cpu and gpu uses more power and you uses more ram With the cpu and gpu using more power they also produce more heat. Check the cooling of the cpu and gpu!
Let's do some tests:
put a high load on your cpu by running seti@home for example for at least 15 minutes. If that works we can almost rule out the cpu as the root of the problem.
check your ram with memtest86 for some hours.
get your vga-card out of your motherboard and reinstall it again.

If that doesn't help you have a BIG problem! :))

My VGA is Geforce3 ti200, it used to be nice partner for conquer counterstrike and a can of beer.....heheheheee
I still have no time to switch my PSU and VGA, and over heat is not an issue since I use nice cooler for processor and a lot of fan on my case (89f ambience and 104f CPU).
I tried to remove VGA card and uninstal then install new driver but it did not help.
Oh...I also upgraded my bios of MB after change casing. Is this maybe the problem come from?
My MB is Gigabyte GA-7VRXP with Athlon XP 1800+
