it crashed quite a while before when i posted this. i've already dusted my PC. I have sufficient amount of power. (Rosewill 600w] not efficient though. Exchange thermal compound? lol Pink screen of death
I re-installed my whole pc, and at the same time added a 2nd drive for RAID 0 and it was STILL doing it.
I'm Running a Gigabyte h67-ud3h-B3 Mobo + 2500K cpu and 8gb of 1333mhz ram (everything up-to-date, bios, firmwares, Intel & gigabyte win7 drivers,etc...)
It's also a Gigabyte video card : GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI V3 GeForce GTX 460
In Ubuntu before my whole Os re-install, it was running FINE, no corruption at all, so this is def a Win7 driver issue. Unified drivers suck ass mate.
I hope this helps, I'm still testing my rig with the old driver, I'll report back if it doesn't fix it. And try to follow the UN-install guide as much as possible, where he mentions removing the stereoscopic 3d driver, don't worry about it, ours is called Nvidia 3dvision and Nvidia 3D vision controller, just Remove those instead, as the forum article is quite old.
Swap out your drivers. The 296.10's have been causing this in some rigs. You should try the 301.24 beta drivers, then you will also get the new FXAA, Adaptive VSync, etc. Just be sure to do a clean install.
should there be an whql version release of a 300 nvidia driver later on?
Yes, but don't fear that beta version. I've been using it for a week or two with no problems, and it's listed on the Nvidia website, so it's an "official" beta compatible with all their cards. WHQL doesn't necessarily mean that it won't have bugs in it either.
