Ok need some help. I picked up a PNY 6800GT from compusa to replace my 9800pro. I ran drivercleaner and then installed my 6800gt. Everything works great... I install the coolbits 2.0 reg file and get my overclocking options, but nowhere do I see a temperature readout panel on the 6800 tab in advanced display settings.... SO at the advice of someone from HardOCP forums I check the coolbits reg file and everything seems fine. So I install the new version of speedfan... all it detects is my motherboard sensors... DOes this mean my cards sensor is fubared? I did try overclocking and it auto detected at 417 - 1.1 and ran 3dmark03 at 10848..

Also I downloaded the nadu demo and it wont run... DO I need DirectX9c to run the demo?

Specs:
Abit AT7-Max2
1 gig pc 2700
AMD AthlonXP 2400+ at 2.167

Any help is appreciated..

Thanks!

Weird, picked up the same card last night, completely uninstalled the Catalyst drivers. Installed the card along w/ the 62.01 drivers & all options are availible. Still using dx9b btw, nalu demo runs fine along w/ ut2k4. Didn't have a chance to test anything else. Card only running @ 400/1100 ATM.

Did you get any errors while attempting to run the demo? It should help direct you to the cause of the problem.

No no errors.. it just locked up at the Black screen with all the buttons on top. Ctrl-Alt-Del to the taskmanger and had to end task. I did run that rhdrible or whatever its called and it runs great and so does 3dmark03... I wonder if I need to do a fresh install of XP.

Well I have put a fork in it cause its done... I will either be returning it to COmpUSA or RMA it to PNY. I tried everything.. another machine fresh install etc. nothing worked. ALso I downloaded some Demos from Nvidia's Site and they lock up 1/2 a second in to it. I also installed Quake 3 and it locks up when trying to change the resolution to anything other than 640x480.... Weird how Direct3d stuff runs perfect... Oh well....
