how do you go about changing voltages? I want to tweak the 3.3V up a little to see if it solves a video lockup issue..

Or do you mean the 3.3v from the psu? Thats a bit out of my expertise :p
You can change the agp voltage on some boards as well - that might solve any video lockup issues

Yeah, I htink that's the one.. I had a look in my BIOS but it doesn't allow any changes to voltages.. I have heard that tweaking the voltage up a little can help stabilize the video card.. in particular I have a Radeon 8500 that works fine in most cases but I am getting lockups in Wolfestein.. I wonder if my cpu is getting too hot.. not sure, just want to try some different things to see if I can get my system to be more stable..

Are you overclocking your videocard? There shouldnt be any need to adjust voltages if your videocard is running stock speeds and in most cases voltage doesnt need to be raised even when overclocking. Have you got the latest ati drivers? What temps are you getting for you cpu?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
