8600GT crash

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Whenever I run games on my PC they run for about 5-10 minutes before the entire system hangs for about 10 seconds and then my screen go onto standby and i have to restart my computer. I have had this problem with Shadowrun and NWN 2.

Incase it helps according to the system information it was a Windows Error and was a type 5
&#x000A. There were several errors listed at the time of the hang all with and event name related to the PnPDriver not being found or having a problem code or something to do with a Radar Pre leak.

My GPU temperature is generally around 56 at the time of the hang and has normally reaches that point after about 10 seconds of playing and then stays there with only small fluctuations (no more then 1 degree either way)

My PC is as follows:

Mobo: Asus M2V
CPU: AMD Athalon X2 5200+
RAM: 2Gigs DDR2 800
Graphics: Asus 8600 GT (Forceware 158.45)
Sound: Onboard (Realtek)
Maxtor Hard drive (80GB) (from my old rig)
DVD drive (quite new, i'm taking this from my old rig)
Power Supply: Blue Storm 500

and is running Vista Buisness 32bit

If you need anymore information about my system or the errors just ask.

Thanks,
Lightbulb

Go HERE to enter system specs

Try "underclocking" your video card. I have been having the same problem when i was under windows xp, havent had it yet since i switched to vista X64 but it would be when im playing starcraft or a dvd, the screen would turn white. There is someone here on the forum who underclocked the card and was fine. it also used to happen on my old X800GTO fireblade, i underclocked it and it ran fine.

I think that a card should work fine as-is. If one or another OCs his card, it's on each one's responsibility. However, if you pay for a GT that is suppose to run 600/800, than it should be working at that speed, not lower. If underclocking helps, it means your card is having a hard time working @ stock frequency. In turns imho it should be RMAed.

It may be something else though, as I have a GT heavily OCed and Vmoded with load temps around 60-62°C under XP and so far it's being working like a swiss watch. A working GT should be fine @60-80°C load temp.

*EDIT Additional info needed: does it hang only under specific 3D apps (games) or in all of the games/benchmarks you have tried so far?

If my theory is right, then I quote Dragosmp, you will have to rma this card, it is unacceptable. I bough my card used, so i have no qualms or rescourse, as long as it works, the seller is protected.

I have run benchmarked it on 3D Mark 07 without any problems and it only crashes whilst playing games. In the menus for Shadowrun it will stay working indefinatly. The same applys to NWN 2, it only crashes whilst playing and not going through menus.

If it crashes only in some situations it can be a driver issue. This is the latest nVidia driver for Vista x32, you may want to give it a try if you haven't already.

You could update the directX to the latest version if the driver issue persists. There may be other things, but as nevaziah said, you should fill your specs (userCP) to be able to give a proper insight.

I have now tried underclocking my graphics card (I lowered my GPU and memory clock by 200 Mhz) and although it lengthens the time it takes for the games to crash by about 10-20 minutes they are still crashing.

I've just run ATITool (0.27) and i scanned for artifacts at clock speed, it crashed the entire computer requiring a reboot after roughly 2 minutes.

I have phoned the company that sold me it and they have agreed to take it in and I am taking it to them tommorow and they are going to test it then and there.

Your VID card is toasted, I'm sorry to say that. It is what me and neveziah were saying at the beginning, if the VID card responds favorably to underclocking it means that for a reason or another it cannot cope with the stock frequency, which is unacceptable imo.

I advice you to change it for another one. You just got unlucky this time, but as far as I can see the 8600GTs are great cards for the money.
