Hey Everyone, I am having some trouble with my 8800gt. Its a little hard to describe the problem, so heres a picture:
This happens nearly every time i do something graphically intensive, and requires a restart (computer freezes, and such). Ive had this problem for a while, and RMA'ed one 8800GT, but that did not solve the problem.
My setup is:
EVGA 680i SLI mobo
2gb Corsair RAM (I have replaced the ram a few times just to ensure that this wasnt causing my problem)
(None of these are overclocked)
No, but ive been having this problem since about july of last year and have put up with it (only, i want to fix it now that MW2 is out... lol), so I dont think i could even find a driver older than that that will work with win7
do you have your boards latest Bios? Firmware? etc??
Nvidias latest driver for the 8600/Win 7 is working perfectly fine. I don't think your issue has anything to do with the GPU itself unless the RMA'ed card was used and not actually sealed by the manufacturer.
1. Yes, up-to-date
2. active: ~50C
3. No i have not tried different monitor/cables, tho I dont think this would cause the PC to freeze... (Audio cuts out. thats how I know its frozen)
4. Its an OCZ 700w (not 800W as stated above. sorry)
active 50C? do you mean on load? and what program are you using to check temps? I usually use GPU-Z. Do you know a friend that could test your GPU in their system because then you would know for sure. The most probable causes in this case is usually GPU, drivers, or PSU.
