also, I received response from EVGA as follows:







So I did all that. I'm going to test it. Wish me luck.


edit:


ok so Starcraft 2 didn't completely crash, but the screen blacked out a few times and cam back to normal. i did get to finish a quick custom game (battlecraft - i won too lol) so I guess that's progress.

I'm going to see a movie, I'll be back later. Thanks again.
GL. For fan speed, try rivatuner, you should be able to set them there

The paged pool is different from the page file. The paged pool is a subset of memory that can be paged. Windows separates data into two address spaces- memory that can be paged and memory that cannot be paged. When the your system begins to run out of free physical memory, Windows starts copying data in the paged pool to the page file.

This error from Starcraft 2 typically affects people running the game on Windows XP because the paged pool is windows XP is very small. You definitely don't want to run SC2 in compatibility mode. Disabled compatibility mode if you haven't already.

The most likely cause of this issue is that one of your drivers is leaking memory. The video corruption and nvidia driver crashes may just be the result of your paged pool filling up. Bad stuff happens when you run out of paged pool memory. After you have tested your hardware, I would recommend updating your audio drivers and if that doesn't help, try reducing the sound settings in the game. Definitely run memtest and some sort of GPU stress/stability test though.

Setting the timings Manually to 9-9-9-24 (my corsair dominator 1600mhz recommended timing) and selecting "XMP Profile" under "Memory Speed" in my BIOS, it unlocked the 16--mhz speed option - before it auto'd to 1333mhz

After manually setting speed and timings of my DRAM, and allowing windows to manage the page file itself - all is well.

I CAN PLAY STARCRAFT 2 ON ULTRA WITHOUT A PROBLEM!! AND IT DOESN'T BOG DOWN TILL THERES OVER 600 UNITS FIGHTING AT THE SAME TIME!


Thank you Mathew from EVGA and everyone in this thread, and Overclock.net - I found a new home

Make sure your timings weren't reset, and it sounds like you have bad ram.

Hey man, you have the exact same issues as I do. I figured out how to fix it hopefully it will work with you too.

It has to do with a conflict with sc2 and more recent nvidia's graphics drivers that is causing the issue, nothing outside the realm of the graphic drivers and sc2 software since every other game you played on your pc has no issues. If you played or looked at the single player of sc2, the in-game cutscenes or interactions have no graphical glitches, lag, and/or blinking screens occur other than in actual gameplay, then you're having the same problems I did.

The one thing I tracked it down to 2 possible things. Nvidia PhysX or Nvidia Display drivers. Since I'm not too sure which one is causing the problems, you'll have to uninstall both, but you need to do a clean install to install an older driver set. You'll need clean sweeper @ www.phyxion.net, and you may want to reverse any other tweaks everyone suggested so far on your comp so no other problems may arise before beginning the steps.

Step 1. First you go to www.nVidia.com and look for beta and archived drivers, choose the right gpu you have and the right o/s and dled all the WHQL drivers (except recent one) archiving back to July ##, 2010 right before SC2 came out.

Step 2. The next thing you want to do is completely uninstall both graphic drivers, physx drivers, and if need be nvidia HD audio drivers. If you have to restart just to uninstall the next one from your control panel, then do so if need be.

Step 3. Once everything nVidia is clear, use the clean sweeper program and update the program to the latest one (which should be 2.8.5 if higher then update to that one.) and checkmark everything nVidia, chipsets, display, and physx. and press the clean button in order to find leftover drivers that wasn't completely removed.

Step 4. After it's done restart your comp and install the most recent drivers, and make sure you install DISPLAY DRIVERS ONLY, and nothing else. After the installation and restart, load up SC2 and create a game and see if any problems occur. I recommend using Starjeweled with all A.I. as your benchmark, cuz it is more noticeable on that map than any other (for me it was immediately clear if it wasn't fixed).

Step 5. If the problems are still present, then repeat Step 1-4 with the next older nvidia display drivers on your list, until it is eventually fixed.

I can't say if Nvidia PhysX or the Display drivers itself is causing the problem. If you get the problem fixed, and need the PhysX to play other PC games (or want to see if PhysX is causing the problem), then I'd recommend you use trial and error with the steps I have provided (and install PhysX with your drivers). I kinda did everything else before I considered rolling back my drivers, probably because I didn't have clean sweeper to remove drivers that didn't necessarily uninstall by the one uninstall program provided by nVidia. I even did a clean install of the Windows 7, which didn't help whatsoever, and changing page pool memory did nothing at all. You should be able to play everything on Ultra, without a problem, since I had no problem before until the game started to crap out on me with the more recent drivers.

GL to you, hope this helped
