Default Re: A potentially bad problem for my 6800 GT.

It's one hell of a card. I've overclocked it to the moon and back, but it still doesn't budge on stability.

BTW, another problem arose on that computer today.

I tried to log on to my profile in XP, but about 15 seconds after I log on, the screen loses signal, goes blank, and the system freezes up. I was going to post the problem on here, but I got it fixed pretty quickly.

1. booted up in safe mode
2. noticed there was a restore point made when I installed crysis yesterday.
3. went back to that restore point.

Problem solved (thank god). I thought my old computer was a goner.

Whoops, I forgot to mention this, but the cooler on the 6800 GT is a Zalman VF700-CU. If it was still on stock, it would be dead.
