Problem is running Wow. I just got the computer about 1 week ago from Ibuypower. I spent one evening installing NOD 32 and updating XP and another day installing and updating Wow. The third day i was able to to start playing, So i starting multiboxing(5 wow clients at once). Played for a good 2-3 hours then went down to single client of wow for about 45 min. That is when the Computer monitors both went black and flashed "no signal" or "no input" then the sound went into a loop(this all happening simultaneously). There was no auto reboot, i manually had to power down the unit.

I checked temps:
CPU: 35
Board: 32
MCP: 50

And used CPU-Z to get my timings:
DRAM Freq: 400.0 MHz
5:6
5.0 clocks
5 clocks
5 clocks
12 clocks (was set at 18 changed it to 12)
22 clocks
2T

The PSU sits on the bottom of the case (first time i have seen that) and the unit sits on a carpet floor. Im a newbie so if any of this info is useless plz forgive me. PSU was warm on touch but i didn't know how to check temp for that.

Hey mate, sounds like a driver or game issue. What drivers version are you using for your video card? Have you applied all the latest game patches for your WOW game?

Yea i have the latest drivers for my vid card and the latest patches for Wow. However i am using the Beta 186 driver for my 285. Here is a link to a thread of mine in another forum. IBP forum Its a little lengthy but has a lot of info about my unit. Volts, Clocks, Drivers, and software Test data. Most i have trouble figuring out what it means so if you could take a look. Im at the last stages of troubleshooting (that is within my comfort range) I have learned A TON of new stuff about troubleshooting (maybe not that much, just had so much fun doing it tho!! :) )

You know, it could be something entirely different causing this... Have you tried running a hard drive diagnostic, for example?

The manufacturer should have a diagnostic tool on their support webpage somewhere, usually you can download and create a bootable disc from it. That's the best way to test it.

What make is your hard drive?

My HD is a Hitachi HD721010SLA. I ran the RD-Read test and also the S2-Extended Test.

RD-Read: 11:30PM- 2:47AM
<5ms 7,625,088
<10ms 1,834
<20ms 589
<50ms 571
<150ms 45
<500ms 0
>500ms 0
Bads 0
The S2-Extended Test: 2:52AM - 6:23AM
Status: Completed with no error or never started. (i watched it move along till 50% and then i went to bed).

I was unsure about the bootable disk, because i have not trouble logging on to my computer. Any other tests i should run? im running out of parts to test :). Unless you think i should still make that bootable disk and run it, and that bootable disk wont wipe or try to recover anything will it? because i dont need to wipe or recover anything :)
