I just recently bought a Palit GTS 250 1GB. I installed the card, started up my computer fine. Installed the drivers on the CD, then when I restarted I got a blue screen after windows loaded, that said "Physical memory dump." So I reverted back to the last known functioning settings, then downloaded and installed the latest drivers off of Nvidia. After restart I got the same blue "physical memory dump" blue screen. I'm 99.9% sure I got a card that is fully compatible with my system. Also, after I restart it tells me to reinstall the drivers, but same issue. Any help would be awesome! -Jake
