  1. Hi all,

    My system was AMD Duron 1300Mhz, Chaintech 7AIA, 256mb SDRAM, 20Gb Quantum HDD, NEC CD-ROM, Riva TNT2 PRO 32Mb AGP 4x, PSU 235W, WIN XP Pro and was stable. When I changed video to ATI RADEON 9200SE 64MB, it started restart. I thouht that video, but i changed to Geforce4 mx440, problem is the same. That are ideas for my problem? that is vrong for this system?


    P.S. sorry for my english

    Try another psu, 230W is very very low, even for a PC like that

    Will 250W PSU be powerfull enough for that pc? or better buy 300W?

    If you buy a quality 300W psu then it will be good, 250W is still to low...
    Maybe someone here that is more experianced with psu's can give his opinion?

    Anyhow, don't buy a new psu if you're not sure that the psu is causing you problems(but it is the most likely). Try one of a friend or something?
