New GPU, hanging startup

Recommended Posts

Perform the following tasks:::


  • Remove unused programs
  • Install and run antispyware software
  • Free up wasted space with Disk Cleanup tool
  • Defragment your hard disk drive
  • Update the drivers



Stop Unwanted startup programs:


Start > Run > write msconfig > Click on StartUp tab

Deselect the programs you want to stop



Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.


Once that temp folder is open and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.


It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.


If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.


Repeat the steps with c:\windows\temp


After you're done with both temp folders, restart the computer.


Stop unwanted services:::


Click Start, type services.msc in the Search box. Press ENTER. Right click and stop each service which is not necessary for you.

I highly doubt the 350 W PSU even has a 6 pin. That 6850 needs a separate power plug from the PSU. You can't just put it in your computer (it worked for old cards but nowadays cards need more juice).

The 350w is probably the issue. As for that Raidmax, it should be enough for your setup but any upgrades and you will need a better PSU. Big name brands cost more because they are better made and can actually produce the power they say, or close enough. Gotta pay to play.
