    Unhappy A780gxe/128m please help me ;(

    Hello
    I get random crashes when im playing games.
    It's very random, it crashes from 5 min to 2 days.

    First i thought it was VGA(becouse it was warm), then PSU.
    But now that problem couses the motherboard i think.
    When it crashes all transistors(those oval thing's) on motherboard are hot.(hard to keep finger on it)
    When i play with Integrated vga i don't have that crash,but when i connect my 9800gt i get that crash.

    Maiby it's becouse my PSU is to weak.
    CRASH:When i get the crash my PC just freezes.No repeating sound,it doesn't restar, just freezes ;(

    I need to wait 1 hour to start PC agen without any crashes in dekstop.

    I Tryed everything,reinstalling windows,putting some fans.I didn't overclock anything.

    Please help me
    thanks

    System specs:
    PSU: 500W 38 AMPS
    VGA: EN 9800gt/Integrated:Radeon HD 3200
    CPU:AMD 9950 Quad core AM2+4MB
    DDR2:4gb 800MHZ

    Maybe we can help. Can you download, install and run ↓HWmonitor↓? We would like to see temps. Here is the shortcut to the download. CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
    Just play the game a few min. with the HWmonitor open. then view hwmonitor. It will show the highs the lows and the current values. It includes cpu, system, and core temps, and GPU temps.
    It will look something like this. This was captured using the PrtScn SysRq tab on the keyboard then open paint and click paste, cropped saved as jpeg. Then I uploaded to Imageshack.com. Copy url for picture and paste here. This way we can look at voltages too. Or use what ever Image conversion you prefer. Just so's we can see it.

    This will give us a good start.
    The Graphics card should be in the green PCIE2 slot with the little jumper card in the default position.
    As shown on page 16 ↓HERE↓

    If those are your temps while playing games. It's not showing that it's getting hot at all. Did you have the hwmonitor program open "running" while you were playing the game? Then close the game and take the image of it. This is my HWmonitor open while playing. Image taken after playing and closing the game. As you can see the temps can go much higher while playing 3d games on high. Look at the GPU voltage on the bottom right side.

    Yes i was playing while hwmonitor was open.
    Played like 10 mins.
    I have a large cpu cooler.
    But this program doesn't show what temp is your motherboard.

    Like i sayd when i have a crash, i touch with my finger those oval things on motherboard and it's hard to keep finger on it.

    So what's cousing the problem?

    To weak Power supply or motherboard problem?
    My vga is plugged in right spot and that thingy near vga on default.

    Maiby you know a proram that would record what's happening before the crash?

    AMD Processors for Desktops: AMD Phenom
    I noticed that your CPU is only going to 125Watts. I believe the AMD phenom 9950 be requires up to 140watts maximum. You may need to contact the motherboard manufacturer and verify that the Motherboard you have is not defective. The cpu fan wattage is not increasing to the 140watts as is required by the cpu. The maximum we are reading is about 125watts on that system you have. Although they are showing it in their cpu support list as supported on all bios revisions. It's clearly not running at the required 140 max wattage.

    Contact Asus or Asrock. You can point them to this post if you want. This would definitely cause heat problems when putting the cpu under a load.

    But what about BIOS?
    i can go there and change wattage of cpu right?.
    Wattage is set to auto in BIOS.

    I think my bios is set up wrong.
    I can send you some photos of my bios settings?

    Well we know that the cpu right now is maxing at 125Watts It needs to max at 140Watts. I am not aware of a setting in the BIOS that will allow this change. Go into bios and see. Ill also see if I can find out anything for you.

    Here i made Cpu and chipset configuration photos and uploaded them.
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=BW26HZAE

    As it seems there is multiplier/voltage change.
    /\/\/\
    That setting was on auto/not manual,forgot to change back when i was taking the photo

    No I did'nt think that you could. You can change frequency and voltage but not cpu wattage. That particular motherboard is showing a max wattage of 125watts. Sometimes a bios revision or update is all that is needed to ad support to a particular cpu. But that cpu support list shows that it should work on all the bios revisions. If that power supply has the 8 pin 12v cpu connector it should work fine. I don't believe it is the power supply. I believe it is the motherboard. You will want to contact Asrock support. They will suggest that you update to the latest bios first anyways. So please do that first. BIOS rev. P180 I believe. Then I would make sure you have at least the required minimum power supply or more with the 2X4 12v cpu connector installed.
    ASRock > Products > Motherboard > A780GXE/128M > Download
    They know of this problem where some of these motherboards don't fully offer the 140Watt support. They may just give you an RMA number to send it back and have it taken care of. You really should contact them about it.
