Power Supply causing BSoD?

By nissanman ยท 4 replies

  1. Hello, Lately, ive been getting BSoD's while playing games such as NFSU2 or NFSMW. The BSoD looks similar to this 0x000000 (000000x000000x000000). Is this a problem with my power supply? Is it inadequate for my setup?

    My System Specs:

    -1Ghz Intel Pentium III 1.0GHz
    -512MB SDRAM (1x 256MB, 2x 128MB)
    -Seagate ST320011A 20GB 7200RPM HDD
    -Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X Motherboard
    -NVIDIA GeForce 6200A 128MB (AGP)
    -Hyena 300watt Power Supply.

    This also happens when i overclock the card a little bit. This is not a heat issue. My system never overheats.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanx, Nissanman :)

    I would say that the power supply would be a good place to start... Try a 450 watt at least

    Ive found a 430watt on the internet for $45NZ. The brand is thermaltake. Would this be ok?
