No problem with the Everest +12V reading, any problem since fitting the new PSU?
Check out your video card http://download.cnet...4-10788513.html

I am only suggesting the free GPU-Z and in no way suggesting that you use any other product or service at the link.

I have played a few games since putting in the new GPU and so far so good (though I havn't done any extensive "testing" [game playing] for too much work) but seems to be going ok.

Check out the screenie of that GPUZ program. I was considering buying a new GPU in the relatively near future anyway but not too sure what to make of this new information from the program.

Nothing wrong with your GPU readings, I would try and adjust the cards cooling fan though - MSI specific but basically one size fits all http://forum-en.msi....?topic=109858.0

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop...pit/default.asp
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Thanks to rshaffer61 for the PCPitstop instructions :thumbsup:

Sorry for the late reply again. Before I had a chance to settle down and do what was posted previously, the problem occurred again this morning on windows boot. I have no idea now really what is causing it and am pretty fed up with this issue. My guess is it is a problem to do with either the mobo, cpu, or graphics card... if you could take a stab what would you think the most likely component?

It would not be right to simply hazard a guess, looking at the symptoms and what has been tried I suspect the video card, if things suddenly seem ok again don`t put off the tests I have asked you to do as something could fail suddenly and damage other components.
