Greetings forum. I have been scouring the internet for a solution to this particular problem and as yet have not found one... So let's see if we can cook up an answer here.

Computer specifications:

Motherboard: Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Xtreme Design Motherboard
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 Processor 3.20 GHz
Memory: 16.0GB
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Graphics Card: Asus GTX 560 DirectCU II OC (nVidia GeForce GTX 560)
Power Supply: Sunbeam PSU-BKS580-US 580W ATX Power Supply

There are no crashing problems when simply using the computer for day-to-day functions, ie checking email, surfing the web, word processing, etc. The two games I have played with this card thus far are World of Warcraft and Skyrim, both on maximum settings.

Both games look great and play great, while they are working. After 10-15 minutes of gameplay (sometimes more, sometimes less) the game will freeze and the computer BSODs and restarts. Sometimes the game crashes to the desktop before the computer goes under.

I have downloaded and installed the most recent drivers for this video card from nVidia's website (Version 285.62 - WHQL), thinking that perhaps the out-of-the-box drivers were not the most current. I thought then that overheating might be the problem, so I downloaded GPU Monitor to monitor the GPUs temperature but saw nothing unusual - the card idles at around 33°C and climbs to 55°C-60°C when running WoW or Skyrim. Problem persists.

Running dxdiag found no problems. I am thinking it might be power-related, but the LEDs on the card which are supposed to indicate proper power feed both light green. I suppose I am skirting kind of close to the minimum required PSU wattage w/ a 580W (minimum required being 550).

If anyone has some light to shed on this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Appears to have no problems with League of Legends on highest settings. GPU hovering around 53°C.

Tried to open Skyrim and I didn't even get a blue screen. I just lost signal and had to hard boot the computer

Click support then use the recommended power supply wattage calculator.

I think u need a higher PSU.

I always go 100W above minimum

PSU's are going in steps from 50W your minimum is 550W + 100W=650W


Your PSU has only 1 (4 pin) +12V rail @25A your VGA card needs 2 x 6-pin (PCie).



So you can by a PSU from 650W or higher 700W, 750W, 850W with a 2 x 6 pin or 6+2 pin PCie connection.

From what I was finding in research I sort of reckoned the PSU might be the problem. I have ordered a new one, a 680W that's on its way from Newegg as we speak.

The video card came with 2 6-pin PCIe male adapters, but I didn't have enough female adapters to plug them all in. The LEDs supposedly indicate that the card is properly fed, though, so maybe the PSU is just inadequate.

On top of that, my PSU is going on 2 years old. I'll be sure to update here once the new PSU arrives as to whether or not it solves the problem.

HI, i got the exact same problem...but i have a psu of 750W so that's not the issue i'm sure of it. My game freez and i have to restart my computer. I tried my ancient video cards and there's not freezing so the issue really come from the GPU. If someone can find a fix to this it would really be appreciate. p.s sorry for y english..i'm french.
