Hello,
I have an Asus P4P800-Deluxe and apparently have begun having voltage problems. On boot up I have been getting intermittent crashes that seem to getting more frequent. Sometimes the error message comes up that overclocking failed even though I do not have it overclocked. I noticed in the bios setup that the 3.3 volt showed 4.08 volts. When I got the system booted up and used ASUS probe it also showed 4.08. I shut the system down and restart and now it shows 3.34-3.36 volts. Only rarely have I been getting reboots after the system has been up and running for a length of time. Any ideas what to do about this. Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
John

I would try a new PSU, 350 Watts is very minimal for a P4 system and if it is a generic power supply that came with your case then it is probably not a very good quality PSU.

I would suggest a Antec or Enermax of atleast 450 watts.

Thanks for the reply. I have a Silentmaxx 350 W power supply, so it should be better than a generic, however point taken that it may be a bit underpowered, but I have had it for almost three years with pretty much the smae configuratin, except for the upgradeed video card a few months ago and it has only been recently that the system has been acting up.

Cheers, John

the extra power pulled by the video card has probably sent it over the edge and it is starting to fail
