Default Re: system crashes when upgrading from 6600GT to 7600GT


thanks for the hint with netconsole. Although netcat -u -l -p 6666 didn't capture the messages, wireshark did. After re-assembling, here it is:

can you narrow down the problem from that?

I will now try a bios upgrade.

edit: performed the bios upgrade from 1001 to 1014, it didn't help. ut2k4 crashed again with a very similar message. the pid and some adresses were different, but the general message and the call trace were identical.

@whig: no, I don't think it's heat related. It doesn't just crash after x minutes of 3d-action. There are visible patterns when it crashes and when it doesn't, and they don't depend on the time I played. For example, I can usually play ut2k4 for 20 minutes without problems (usually, not always), but there's a high chance it'll freeze during the next map change.
