Vocalpoint Posted August 27, 2008 Share Posted August 27, 2008 "The Nvidia system sentinel is reporting that Nvidia-powered graphics card is not receiving sufficient power. To protect hardware from potential damage or causing a potential system lockup, the graphics processor has lowered its performance to a level that allows continued safe operations." I am running an ASUS P5Q with the eVGA 8600GTS Superclocked powered by a Corsair VX550. Everything - including the PCIe power connector is connected properly. This rig has been running Vista 64 for about 10 days with no issues and no messages like the above. However - this morning - I wanted to test a Windows XP install - using the nVidia 175.19 WHQL drivers. As soon as I got round to putting the graphics drivers in place - this message started showing itself. Now - I did the research and I am fully aware of the issues from about 7 months ago with the 8800GTS 512 cards and the eventual fixed drivers from nVidia. But now I am getting this on an 8600GTS and ONLY in XP. Is there a real problem with my Corsair power supply or is it something else? Appreciate some comments. Cheers!
