I'm at a loss here, guys. I have no idea what else it could be. I'm hoping you guys have an idea.

My entire PC seems to run just fine doing anything else. Anything. Except when I load up a game. Seconds after it launches, my computer shuts down and I hear a beep or buzzing sound (nothing bad, I think it's a safety measure) and my power light blinks.

Could I not have enough power for the APU? Does my board not like the APU? I've reinstall my OS in order to make sure all drivers are up-to-date and nothing may be overlapping.

Any ideas?

Make sure you have latest Catalyst 14.2 installed. Check your voltages and temperatures using HWMonitor from It also helps running CPU-Z and GPU-Z simultaneously and observe what happens with CPU and iGPU portions when you launch a game.

Also try disabling Turbo in BIOS. I have a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Rev 3.0 motherboard with the latest F4b BIOS and it would not be stable for the life of it unless I disable the Turbo in BIOS. Amount of Turbo doesn't matter even if it's multiplier matches the base multiplier but Turbo is enabled in BIOS, it would not be stable.

i dont know what to do anymore. everything is brandnew and it should work fine.


thanks for the help!
