is this a GPU problem?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hi everyone, i would like to address this to each and everyone of you (please have time reading this, and pardon me for my grammars). I have this HUGE problem while playing my COD4.

MY SYSTEM:
1. q6600 g0 @ 3.6, 3.2 (356*9@1.4vcore) for now because of the summer heat.
1.1 @ 3.6 it runs Prime for 6hrs and stable using 400*9@1.5vcore.
1.2 @ 3.2 it runs Prime for 24hrs stable using 356*9@1.39vcore.
2. GIGABYTE EP35 Ds4 mobo using F3 bios.
2.1 +.25v on fsb and MCH
3. 2*1Gig Corsair dominators @ stock (no OC, no overvoltage)
4. GALAXY 8800GTS (G92)
4.1 mild OC to 730/1090
4.2 stock cooler with AS5 thermal paste
5. 600W Scythe Gouriki PS
6. 22" widescreen LG LCD (1680x1050max res)
6. Fully Ventilated (open doors), 2 120mm fans for exhaust and intake.


THE SCENARIO:
It happens during Gameplays, On my COD4 and sometimes on my WTCC race. in my COD4 (which im playing all the time) it will happen after a minimum of 30mins of gameplay. i set my COD4 to all high with 2xAA and 1680x1050.

THINGS THAT I'VE TRIED:
1. roll back my GPU OC to stock.
2. Uses 169.44, 174.74, 175.16 forcewares (from OCN threads)
3. Stepped back my CPU OC to 3.2(356*9@1.39) instead of 3.6
4. Reinstalled Windows, COD4, uses DriverCleaner for Uninstalling GPU drivers.

...and still this problem prevails, and oh! when the game locks up and there is no other option to do but to reboot the system, upon pushing the reset button it would take 5seconds before the screen will completely blacked out.
i have attached pics during the gameplay lock up




a very disappointing result on my GPU upgrade. last month i uses GALAXY 8600gts GPU and a 17" LCD and i dont have any problem with my COD4 (played COD4 ever since it was available at the racks, dont have any problems). i tend to give up on this problem and ordered a Alpha Dog G92 GTS. now i have this idea of posting it to this forum and hoping for a rescue.

please help me resolve this issue... is it CPU? GPU? DRIVERS? MOBO INCOMPATIBILITY? pleeeeease.

And oh! a +rep is at stake to those who can extend their knowledge and resolve this problem.

best regards,
POETICTRAGEDY @ OCN

Try underclocking the card and seeing if that resolves anything. It could be either unstable at the clock speeds it's set at or there is not enough power going to the card (what are the idle/load temps by the way?)

Also, do you have another PSU that you can try with the card to see if it runs better or another system to test the card in?

Always try to run everything at stock to troubleshoot problems. 90% of the time its due to a bad overclock.

IT might be a driver problem, or maybe even your directX install got corrupted (?). Try reinstalling both. If it still happens try reseating the card, and then doing some stress tests on it where you can see its temps and how stable it is (Use ATItools). It could be your card is just at the end of its life, but I wouldn't say its that just yet.

I would definitely reset the clocks on the GPU and try running Crysis again.

i believe i used to get the same looking problems when i OC'd the ram on the card too high. but that was an x1950 pro, so i dont know if that applies.
well seeing as your reinstalled everything, it seems like that would narrow it down to being a hardware problem. RMA the card maybe?

Try a different driver as well. An overclock that isnt stable will cause problems like that as well. As a last resort reinstall the game!

tried it all, no work for me. whacked my GPU fan to 100% making my card run below 55 during gameplays.

Are there any games that it doesn't cause that error in?

its one of 3 things, its either your memory on the card overheating or the GPU, the memory could be to high, or one of the memory chips is bad. either way its mainly the memory on the card

EDIT: i see that you reseated the cooler on the card. did you put the pads that were on the memory back on?
