8800GT restart pc when playing only cod4 on latest nvidea drivers

Hey guys i have a 8800 GT alpha dog edition from xfx nvidea card... i actually used to play cod 4 with the driver 169.21..... I had already finished cod4 modern warfare once with nvidea driver 169.21.. i recently played call of duty 4 modern warfare with the new nvidea driver 178.24 , but just within 15 minutes my comp restarted ... I kept on trying more than 10 times but when ever there is a huge explosion or any massive graphical requirement my pc just restarts while playing the game....But when i reinstalled the nvidea driver with 169.21 the game seems to be working just fine .. i played more than 3 hours on a stretch without any restart issues...I even installed the latest nvidea driver180.48 and 181.20 from nvidea website and still am having the same problem that i had with the driver 178.24 the pc just restarts.. But i have no problem playing crysis or assains creed for any long duration with the latest nvidea drivers 178.24 or 180.48... so please help me if any one has able to solve the problem or encountered such an issue cause every time i have to reinstall the old driver 169.21 to play cod 4...

i also have the latest patch 1.7 for cod 4 and do not encounter any problem with any other game...
The temp runs around 63-69 when i run cod 4...

I will take a stab at this, I advise that you contact Nvidea about this issue and COD 4 also, so they can get programmers working on it, it is very important you supply them with all your components you are using to see if they can reproduce your error, also be aware there could be hardware issues internal to your machine you may not have been aware of IE. the mb may have some bad caps or the Nvidea card may have bad caps , but I think it is a video processing error that either Nvidea should be aware of and COD programmers, they will want to know if the new drivers are having problems, and with what game. or games, my recommedation woul dbe to keep with the older driver and wait for a replacemetn it seems that the other games will run on the old 169 ver. Newest drivers are not always compatable with the newst game they can have issues for 6 months or for ever if no one informs teh game designers and teh video card designers.
I hope this helps, mozzilla is not needed...but it hink you know that...

8800gt wont boot my 8800gtx will so it not power related please help


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.
As your 8800GTX boots fine and your 8800GT does not boot one would say that your 8800GT is faulty.

How faulty one does not know, does the fan spin? If so then there is some life left in it.
A technician might replace the capacitors for a fee, this may get it working again.

There is not much else on can do but give it to a computer technician to try and repair it.

Regards

Freezes while playing WOW or graphics go berserk.


Thats odd. Try cleaing out the cooling fins with compressed air to get ou the dust. Take out the card and put it back in.  Have you tried updating the driver? try this stuff and see if it helps. I hope it does. cobrasdh

My monitor has no input signal when i plug it on my xfx 8800gt alphadog. i've been using it for almost 5 mos, then all of a sudden, when i start my PC my mmonitor is ok but after 3-5 minutes it says no...


your card is probably overheating. the alphadog editon has an extremly small cooling for the gpu. try cleaning it with a caned air spray and check the NVIDIA control panel to see the temp. of the GPU if the problem is solved try running a game benchmark to see if that works.

Infinite loop error


First try to pop the 8800gt into a friend's computer, if it works for them uninstall and re-install drivers yet again, followed by a format if appropriate. If it does not work, try to get a RMA on the card.
