Hello all,

after using the 8800gts for a good 3 weeks now . The card is displaying Pixel failures on the Background pictures in windows.
Tested both winxp as vista rtm .. and both with the same results.

Is there any way to check if something is wrong with the videomem before i demolish the rest of my machine ?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers

Dre

can you post a screen shot and does this pixel failure is showing all the time or it is showing random ?

Do you mean it's showing dead/stuck pixels on your background? If so, another user was reporting this with his card so it may be a related issue.

They were coloring pixels in the Static windows background screen.

I think ive isolated the problem now as it seems to disappear if u switch over to VGA instead of DVI.

Im using a Syncmaster 205BW on 1680x1050 (DVI). Switching over to a non native 1280x1024(DVI)fixed the problem.

SO i thought lets use that old vga cable :P and on 1680x1050 the problem was gone...

So atm its more of a Samsung DVI problem then it is a 8800gts problem.

Cheers
