Question about BFG Technologies (BFGR88768GTXE) NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GTX 768MB (768 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card

GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB Freezing computer

I am getting a pattern of mostly green/red squiggles spread over the entire screen and then a lock up. I can reboot in safe mode. I did this to download a driver for a Nvidia 7800 card from an older PC I thought to replace the 8800 until I found a solution. I get a hardware error when I try to use the 7800. I'm looking for a repair for the 8800 if possible. I thought it might be the driver. I updated it 3 weeks ago though and never had a problem until now. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Is the card overclocked? What you described are called Artifacts and is usually due to the clock speed or memory speed is more then the card can handle stability.

Whats the wattage on you PSU?

Does you case have good cooling?

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

Palit 8800 GT 1GB screen problem


Hi there,

This certainly sounds like the card is over heating, 120 celcius is way to high for the card to be working as mine is the 8800 GTX and runs at 60 celcius at the most. The blue screen just confirms this further as windows will do that to stop it from getting too hot. I would make sure that the fan is working properly on the card and if it has dust in it or anything like that then remove it and try again.
