ok i just recently bought a bfg 9800gtx+ and while im playing call of duty wow the game freezes and the pixels get all messed up and i cant even use alt control delete and i have to shut down my system....this happens after playing for about 30 min and i never had these problems with my previuos graphic cards which were dual 9800gt's... NEED HELP PLEASE
Download and save the latest driver to where you can find it for later install
Download DriverCleaner or DriverSweeper ( You can find both at guru3d.com )
Uninstall the Nvidia video driver thru Add/Remove Programs in the control panel
Reboot into safe mode and cancel any install that pops up
Run the driver cleaner
Install new driver
You shouldn't have an issue with any card that require's two 6 pin power connectors, for the one's that need an 8 pin power connection I would think that the use of an adapter would be fine.
Question; Why switch from two 9800 GT's to a single GTX in the first place ?
yea i was gonna go sli with the gtx+ ....duhh lol ..but i had a bad card whenever i played any of my games after 30 min the pixels would get messed up and then my computer would lock up and that was after reinstalling the drivers and doing that driver cleaner...so im gonna return the 9800gtx+ and buy a gtx 260 and then add another one later on i think thats good...right?
That's what you were telling him ?
Calling him lazy for not installing driver correctly, when because of the question he asked "how do you do that", he obviously didn't know the proper procedure.
Calling him a moron for making people such as you ( I won't include myself ) pay restocking fees when that's something he's responsible for.
