BFG 6800 OC AGP freezing PC - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thread Starter 
It gets to windows and after a min or two the hard drive lights up solid and it just freezes up, cant do anything after that but to reset the computer. Let me check on that IRQ and see what I can find also I have no idea if the bios was altered on the card.

Very poor design because that cover locks in heat nicely and the fans inside do a real crap job locating the heat.

It isn't 1994 anymore, Windows has had the ability to manage its own IRQ's since Windows 95, and the OP is useing Windows XP. There's absolutley no need to go messing aournd with IRQ's as Windows XP is perfectly capapble manageing them with its Virtual IRQ library.

There's three things I think you should consider, given the information you provided.

1. Seeing as its second hand on ebay and you're haveing issues installing the drivers I'd say the card is screwed. Just because its possible to install them in safe mode doesn't matter as your graphics card isn't being used at this point. Rendering is done by the CPU itself under safe mode useing generic display software and the output is simply put through the graphics card's analogue/DVI port.

2. Apart from the conclusion that your card is screwed it is possible that previous ATI drivers could be conflicting, though this of course would only apply if you owned an ATI card prior to upgradeing and neglected to install the drivers for it.

3. Its entirely possible that your RAM has developed faults, download and run memtest86+ to rule this out as a faulty DIMM can bring up the same symptoms.

Does the card still have the Bios sticker on it?

As stated by t4ct1c, you're card is probably fubared.
The previous owner may have tried flashing the Bios and failed, thus the Ebay sale.

BFG 6800 OC AGP freezing PC

When ever I try to install the drivers for the video card it freezes up the computer. I have tried a clean windows installation and still same problem. This card I got from ebay and did not come with a drivers cd so I downloaded the most resent ones from the website. Do you guys thinks the card is damaged or what can the problem be??

Your first post says agp but your last post says (PCI) 10 GeForce 6800...

All add-in cards are seen as PCI.

Spik3, I still think you may have a card with a bad Bios flash, or bad card period.
Do you have another AGP card you can try or another board you can try?

Yes I have an ATI Radeon 9550 that works just fine in that same system and I was replaicing it with the GeForce 6800 but I just thought that I might of been doing something wrong and wanted to consult the experts here at overclock that are more experienced than me. Well looks like I will be returning that card and getting my money back.

See if the card still has the Bios sticker on it.

K wait, I thought this was a fresh install of Windows.
Did you uninstall the drivers correctly?
Check my sig for driver removal.
