Hi

After reading through this forum, it looks like I am not alone with the following
symptoms:


While booting, there are soem artefacts on the screen (about 10 red, green, etc squares randomly)

Sometimes (in win xp) the screen starts blinking 'till it freezes completely

And finally (while playing Wow of FEAR) polygons are not drawn correctly (eg one corner of a polygon is completely somewhere else, causing weird images


My System:
MSI NX7900GT 256
PENTIUM 930D
ASUS P5N32 SLI DELUXE
and 2 GB of Kingston Value Ram

Needless to say that the system worked like a charm for about 4 months.
I Already tried different driver versions, putting the card in the other slot, etc. The funny thing is, these symptoms appear only sometimes - otherwise
i couldnt write this posting... :(

Any Hints or Ideas?

tnx & greetings

Bye Bye 7900GT. I had both a 7800GT and a 6800GT die in the same fashion.

Best option is to RMA it. There isn't much else you can do.

Looks like RMA is your best option.

What happens when you run 3DMark06?

Well the 7900 range doesn't seem that great i have heard alot of RMA's for these cards more then any other.

well, my 7900 GTX's served me well, they are still good, and since I have never OC, maybe thats the reason they lasted so well :)

Got that right, ive RMA'd two 7900 GTX's with the bad memory problem, my 7950 GT seems to be running fine though!

yea, i had to RMA my 7950gt as soon as i got it. one of the resistors on the back of the card made a loud whining noise when the card went higher clocked into 3d mode. that's fine for me though, as it was only meant to be a step-up card, and at the end of jan i will move on (nana2)
