View Full Version : Strange 8800 GTX Problem After Monitor Wakeup

So I have had this new card just a few days and what I am finding is that if the monitor goes to sleep (after 15 minutes in my settings) the card will not work properly after it is reactivated. Games will start, but almost immediately into rendering the card will stutter, artifact, and draw random stuff. I can always alt-tab out to kill the process. If I try another game prior to a restart I will get the same behavior.

After I restart, however, all is fine. I can play for hours, play multiple games with stunning performance - no problems so I am guessing its a software issue.

I am running the new WHQL drivers for XP32. I've been searching high and low for anyone else experiencing this but am not finding anything. Anyone have an idea?

Well, I uninstalled nTune and haven't had the issue since. Is that software really that bad?
