I contact EVGA AGAIN, and so they say they will send me another one. I send mine back in...get the 8800gtx back ( hopefully it wasn't the same one I sent in because it only took them 2 days to send one back). Same thing is happening. This time I was playing Global agenda for less than 5 minutes...blue dots all over screen...BSOD...restart...freeze at login screen.
Could this be anything OTHER than my video card?
And how can I talk to EVGA about doing something else rather than this same lousy process over and over again?
Can't Do much...Ima try and change the pci e slot now and screw w/ the wires triple checking everything. My screen doesn't even show up so its as if the video card i\sn't outputting power, yet its getting power to the fan..
WOW!! The video sure scared the hell out of me.....
Have you tried firstly:
1 Changing the DVI port, I believe the card has 2 DVIs right?
Try one first and then try the other one....
2 If that didn't work, did you try a new DVI cable?
Just looks like normal VGA card ram/Gpu corruption.
The 8800gtx have a habit of going bad, had one myself.
Only thing you can really do is another RMA, the company only has t provide a repair or equivalent product when you send them a faulty card. It's just unfortunate they send you faulty ones back.
I would suggest calling them again, explaining whats been going on and asking just what it is they do to test these cards if at all.
If you do not get a satisfactory answer tell them you will be contacting trading standards. Then see if they pull a finger out.
