Question about Palit Microsystems GeForce 8800 GT,, PCI Express Video Card
I recently upgraded from an ATI Radeon X1650 512mb to a Palit Geforce 8800gt 1gig card and I have been experiencing some major issues.
First I downloaded the latest 8800gt drivers from Nvidia which caused memory parity error BSOD's constantly after about 5 mins of running to computer along with flicker at the top of the monitor and intermittent totally garbled display.
I then downloaded the card specific drivers from Palit which stopped the memory parity BSOD's but left the flicker at the top of the monitor and intermittent garbled display on boot up. Now the comuter seems to have a garbled display on boot up which often causes crashes and BSOD's quoting a problem with nv_disp.dll, this only seems to happen when booting the computer after a length of time turned off though. I usually have to hard reboot the computer and cut all power to it for a minute to get a stable boot. But the flicker still remains up there and random crashes with the same nv_disp.dll message do still happen although rarely.
Any ideas what could be causing this???
Here is my rig setup:
CPU + Mobo
Intel Pentium 4 - 3Ghz
2gig RAM, 2.99Ghz
Palit Geforce 8800gt +1gig
Dell Dimension DIM9100
Logitech USB first/pilot mouse+
Dell Standard USB keys
Dell Standard LCD
ST3160023AS HDD 145gig
Thanks in advance for any help!
Nvidia's recommendations for the 8800GT are 26 Amps (I think) on the 12V rail... Although you would think 20 Amps would be enough, my next step would be to uninstall the video card driver again, get yourself a copy of a program called Driver Cleaner dot net, run the program in safe mode to completely remove all of the Nvidia driver, then reboot into Windows, download the latest WHQL driver for your card from nvidia's website, and see if that fixes it. If not, either try the card in a system with a more powerful power supply, or get a more powerful power supply, and see if your error goes away.
