Question about PNY XLR8 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card
I have a Dell XPS 420, which is also equipped with a NVIDA GeForce 8800 GT. I've had this computer for almost 2 years and right when I get my first problem its out of the dell warranty... I'm a huge PC gamer the problem I'm having is while I'm gaming the program locks up, I noticed that vista was trying to alert me to the problem saying that a device wasn't responding I went to the Device Manger to discover that my gfx card wasn't "working properly" code 43.. I've been searching all over the net for a fix to this problem I've done everything suggested but still no success.. I'm trying to find some help that doesn't require me to reinstall my OS (again) or uninstall/install my drivers.. any guidance with some tangible information would be greatly obliged.
My computer spec's are as follows:
Model: XPS XPS_420
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Memory: 4.00 GB
OS: 32-bit vista SP 1
Most likely you will want to try and update the driver for the grahics card maybe even uninstall the device and reinstall it will be a big difference. I also suggest trying this before the driver update.... try to do a system restore back to the point where you think it last worked it could have just been another program that is interfering with it. Be sure to save your game files under your game folder on a flash drive incase it uninstalls your progress of it. If you need help doing that let me know ill explain more on how to keep the game files and such. Be sure to update the driver later on. Lastly i would check and make sure the fan is working...or heat sink on the graphics card isn't getting to hot that could be another cause to the problem goodluck!!
