I think if I don't get this thing solved, it's not a big deal after all. If I can play other games perfectly and these not it isn't a tragedy. But I'd like to fix this any how.

it just confirms what I think...the video card is causing the problem...if playing your games at higher AA & AF settings is important to you just upgrade the card...they are really cheap right now...check these benchmarks out here...they are not just faster..they draw less power and run cooler

I don't mean to intrude on this topic but thought this may also be worth looking at.

Most video cards today run on the 1.5V line of the power supply. As you stated,

The computer's umm.. electricity block or something like that its the thing that brings the higher electricity to lower...erm-I am not so good with "computer english". It burned out because there were voltage jumping. So my family replaced it with a new one. And maybe from that time the problem is occuring.


The power supply must have enough amperage and voltage to run everything in your computer. If you look at your first screen shot of heat and voltages,

You have 40C and your 1.5V is only registering .94V.

In the next screen shot:

You now have 51C reading HOT and your 1.5V is now only .93V. This voltage being low all the time no matter whether you're playing a game or just sitting there with the desktop only will make your video card work very hard to do its job. Thus resulting in higher temperatures. Higher temperatures result in anomalies ( garbage on the screen or lockups ).

I would recommend revisiting the power supply and possible replacement with a much better unit and once again retest. It is possible that you have not done too much damage to the video card and you will again be able to turn your anti-aliasing back up to where you want it.

If your problems still persist after replacing the power supply it is possible that you have caused too much stress to the video processor and damaged it resulting in need of replacing the video card also.

Hope this helps,

Wow, I think that reallt may be the problem because this problem started many months ago and the only explanation must be the new power supply thank you... but erm I' cant get a new one soon. I'm just a kid..:)

You may want to explain to your parents what you have found on here and that the possibility is there to cause more damage and have the cost be even larger than what it may be now.

The choice is yours but sooner or later something is going to give in your machine.

Under powering a machine with voltage = parts must work harder to do their job = reduced life and or failure.
