Guys, I need some of your input on how to possibly solve the "particles" problem with a Geforce 6800 GT. This is my 3rd RMA card and im not going for a 4th...its either solve this myself with help or bye bye Nvidia.

The card shows corrupted screen from boot up. Im able to reach windows. but as soon as I try to installl any drivers I get a big nice BSOD followed by reset...

Any ideas for me to start trying, pls post em, ill appreciate em!
Thanks in advance

MSI Neo2 Plat, Bios 1.3
AMD64 3500+ 0.13nm (non OC)
1GB Corsair Twinx XL (2-2-2-5 stock)
74GB WD Raptor @10k rpm
SB Audigy 2 ZS
Geforce 2 GTS 32MB (Till my RMA Geforce 6800 card finally works!!)
Plextor DVD-R 712A

can you boot into safe mode "F8" and install the drivers there???

If so does it re-boot without issues or do you get the same thing @ re-boot.

what make is your 6800GT?? - does the manufacturer have a bios update available??

Is a Leadtek A400 GT...Screen is so corrupted at bios that I can't see anything under bios options. It then reaches windows and desktop has particles all over.

If I dare install drivers, I get BSOD and my PC restarts...I can stay on windows for a long time (add crappy refreshs + particles + low res) and PC stays put.

Anymore ideas?

Weird thing is I can run my board with other cards. And I have tested the 6800 GT on other systems (totally different specs) and the card gives the same issues on said systems :(

Maybe im jinxed! *sigh*
