    Default 8800gt 3D not working

    hi, I have this system:
    cpu e8200
    mb gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L
    gpu gigabyte 8800gt GV-NX88T512HP
    ram DDR800 kingmax 2gb
    psu ocz 600W
    OS Windows XP SP2

    the problem is, whenever i turn any 3d aplication, my pc freezs and then restart follows. Also I reinstalled winXP sp2 with a fresh directx9c and forceWare, but it doesn't help. What else...gpu tempereture is normal(49C), MB bios is default( F4 version) and extra power cord is connected to v-card.
    Is there any solution at all???

    Have you tried different versions of Nvidia driver, ie like going back to say a six month old version?

    Has this just started to happen or is it the result of you changing a setting, or even installing a new application?

    If i remember rightly and if you are using XP, you appear to have what i think might be a blue screen typ fault suppressed by default, so as to reboot the PC, rather than show the error.

    Without looking at an XP based PC right now, I believe there is an option to uncheck. This way it won't automatically reboot upon the error but will give you an error message and code. This way you might get an idea as to whats going on.

    Many things can cause this, from a graphics driver to even AV software or a combination of the both etc.

    It could also be the PSU "falling over" when additional load is put on it, ie when you go into 3D mode.

    Although not a very good indicator of this type of fault, you could download HWmonitor from CPUID and see if your voltages are wildy out.

    It could even be a fault with your Ram/settings that are showing up when you go into 3d mode.

    How many running processes have you?

    my first v-card was fault, I RMA it. They gave me another one (same model), still right after running anu 3d application screen goes black and PC restarts.

    previous v-card(the same 8800GT model) worked fine, I think PSU is ok.

    12v line is OK.

    I doubt it's something with Ram/settings, it all runs fine on integrated v-card. I believe it's faulty 8800GT chip or v-ram just like for many other people complaining exactly about the same problem for the same v-card aka 8800GT.

    have you overclocked the card at all? it sounds like your clocks are set too high and the card is heating up too much... check your idle temps with full GPU load (if you can get it working, if not, just use as much load as you can)... when was the card manufactured? try DLing your vbios and post the settings so we can see if there's a problem there

    Yes, please post the actual BSOD error and we could better answer you. If it goes by to fast, and you cannot see it please uncheck this and cause the BSOD again and post the error.

    This will disable Automatic restart on BSOD so you will see the error, and have to reboot the system (Control Panel, system, Advanced Tab, Startup and Recover Button, then in new window Uncheck the shown box in image) >>>



    Have you ran Memtest86+ on your ram? If not, please do, one stick at a time >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Could be dead or dying ram, or incorrect settings/voltages

    Could be overheating ram as well dont ya think? I dont think those cards give a ram temp readout in anything do they? Only newer ones right?
