New build - graphics errors

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

Got my new rig sorted out and put together. Only problem is now i can't play any games without lockups or the graphics suddenly turning garbled and broken after about 2 minutes of playing. It started to play Battle for MIddle earth fine but since then crashed and now wont start up the game. I get an error saying "Your graphics card does not meet the minimum requirements?"!!!! I've checked the temps and it only gets as high as 44 so it can't be a temp problem.

This is what i have so far:

Pixelview 7900 GTX 512mb
Corsair 1GB DDR2 - 800
Mobo = ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe ATX SK775 Core2Duo PCI Express x16
CPU = Intel E6600
HD = Sata 2 - 300 GB

I've updated the drivers for the mobo, gpu, bios. Checked my memory in another comp and it works fine. Still need to test the GPU in another comp as that is the only part left to try? I would be gutted if the GPU wasn't going properly though as i spend a lot of money on it..

Any tips or advice would be wicked,

Do you have the video card installed in the BLUE PCI slot?

Uninstall drivers, boot into safe mode, and run driver cleaner on the nvidia drivers. Then install in safe mode and try again.

Either that, or the video card could be bad. Take it to a comp store and get it teste on another MOBO.

Thanks guys, yeah i have it in the blue slot. Just tested it this morning on a friends AM2 computer and he got the exact same problems as i did. We tried the drivers that came with the GPU and also downloaded the latest ones from Nvidia.

So looks like the card is at fault! I'm going to take it back this afternoon and ask for replacement/refund. This is the second piece i have had to take back to the same store. Guess i wont be dealing with them again!

Well, in this case, the problem may have been the G71 from the start and not the store.

See, that's one of the reasons why I don't buy any current 7xxx video card, they all have the G71 GPU and they're known for having issues. I think the ATI X1900XT is probably a better choice because I haven't heard as many issues in regards of the nVidia's 7xxx a.k.a. G71 GPUs.

Yeah that is a valid point. What pisses me off is i seem to have the worst luck. I have bought 2 graphics cards in my lifetime and out of this, i have had to return two faulty cards now. I just hope the store realises that the card is faulty and replace it or give me the refund.

Crap! Does this mean my recently purchased X1900XT going to show some issues in the near future? Care to enlight?

P.S.: what's wrong w/ putting the gfx-card in the blue slot? I'm using mine at the blue slot, to give my PC a little more room to breathe

Pheeewwww That's a relieve... that's what I thought, cuz I remember researching (a little b4 buying the card). I think one of the fixed issues were the airflow, the card now exhaust to the back... but it's LOUD....
Thanks for a peace of mind markuk
