i got windows 7 ultimate 64-bit installed, with a geforce gts 250 and 4gb ram - also got a 500Wpower supply with pciX power. ever since i installed the graphics card, i have not been able to run the WEI assessment completely. at first it shut down the pc leaving the cpu light on, while doing the directx 9 ALU assessment. i've installed updated drivers for my card from nvidia, and now it does the same at the directx 10 ALU assessment. i have directx 11 installed. how could i repair this?
what this is telling me, is that a combination of the driver software and the hardware - is causing the card to overheat on the various directx alu assessments. would anybody agree?
unless of course, it is causing the card to draw more power from the power supply, which it cannot retrieve then shuts down. i seriously doubt the card is overheating, how many degrees centigrade is overheating from 39°? that is the temperature at shutdown.
okay, i downloaded, installed and ran DriverSweeper 2.1.0 from Guru3D, reran the WEI Assessment - and it threw an error at the directx 9 alu assessment, it did not reboot. so i reinstalled the 258.96 64 bit drivers for my gts 250, and tried running the assessment again. this time, it shut down again at the directx 11 alu assessment.
sighs... guess i can only wait for updated drivers from nvidia anyone maybe know where i might be able to report this issue to the developers of the nvidia drivers?
