    Exclamation asus P5N-t deluxe + core 2 duo E8200 problem

    I got this new pc witha P5N-T deluxe + intel E8200 and 4 GB drr2 800 and a gt 7600GT PCIe. I am running Mandriva free edition 32 bit and my computer is way to slow and having some problems with games and mandriva...

    the 1st problem is when i try to play Nexiuz or ET:QW. the symptoms are long wait to see the game loading, too much lag on the frames.

    the 2nd problem is while trying to play i get some errors on the command line like "/dev/sda5 ( / directory) no acces"

    the 3rd problem is when i try to kill the game... on ps aux i can't find the game PID and generally i try to restart the X but then is show a message that i really don't know where to find in my logs that says /dev/sda5 is not found and i usually have to do a Hard reboot

    Well maybe your hd is dying. Does that happen with another distro too? Also you can try another connector/different cable.

    I'd suggest checking the cables and the connectors on the motherboard/harddrive because when I had a similar problem it was due to a bent pin on the motherboard (bad connection).

    ok i'll check the cables/connections, i don't think that my HD is dying it has 2 years only. could it be hight temperature of the processor? actually in the bios it is around 66C, i can't find any info about good temperature of this processor...

    core 2 duo's shouldn't be running at 66C when your just sitting in the bios. I'd clean your case and do a good job tiding the cables as it looks like there is a lack of air flow in your case.

    edit: if that isn't the problem check the heat sink is making good contact with the processor

    Ya 66 is pretty high for that proc, it might be throttling itself. Make sure your HSF is seated properly.
