GeForce 8800GT crash problems

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Well, I 'm not sure that this problem is caused by the graphic card.

Additional information:
OS: Windows 7 ultimate, latest updates
MOBO: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L, latest updates
CPU: Intel core2quad Q8400 (default speed 2,66Ghz)
RAM: 2Gb
GPU: XFX GeForce 8800GT 512Mb, Driver 270,61

Everytime I open my PC after the starting windows image, it crashes showing that: img0056ph.jpg, http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/718/img0056ph.jpg/ if you cant see the image it says: nvlddmkm.sys - address 8ED4E036 base at 8EC3B000, Datestamp 4d9e7e9b and after the restart everything looks ok. If I restart my PC it doesn't crash but if I shut it down and open it again, it does.
I said everything looks ok because all of the games have about 1sec delay and lag in general.
I tried to change the GPU drivers but I still got the problem. I even formated my PC and again nothing changed.
Before that I got heat issues with the GPU, I could easily cook on it with 108C on load and I had problems with games, so I 've changed the thermal paste and now the temperature is normal about 70-80C in load. I was very carefull at replacing the thermal paste. And after that I got the crash problem.

Thanks in advance. Any help is appreciated.

Are you overclocking your cpu? 70-80C on load seams hot but normal. I remember my 8800gt was running very hot.

Other thing is that it actually might be that your 8800GT is dead. Mine died a while back and wouldn't post at all.

Might be time to purchase a new GPU.

Do you have a spare computer to try it in? If not, RMA it since you have lifetime warranty.

I had OC it in the past with no problems and for a year now its in default clocks.
Maybe it is time to buy a newone but I posted this in case I could save my card. 8800 was a really good one. I can still play games at full graphics. I did basically.

It's when you return a defective card under warranty back to the manufacturer and they replace it. Did you register the card when you bought it?

I didn't cause I leave in Greece so at any case it would be difficult to sent it to XFX. But eitherway I think its limited warranty and includes that you agree not to open it yourself, and I did cause I replaced the thermal paste.
Thanks for the info though smile.gif I didn't know that.

It is a good card but I had to upgrade to a 4850 because I was having problems with mine in the past. You should see if you can get a SAPPHIRE 5850 XTREME for 150$, probably the best value for your money in that price range you can get.

True and 5850 its a goodone and in theory is about 131% faster than 8800

If you can't get a replacement with XFX (I'm not too familar with the European counterpart), you can always resort to baking as a last resort.
