Re: GTX 280 dead?
Booted in safe mode, deleted GTX 280 driver, rebooted again in safe mode, ran driver sweep, now there is ZERO left overs.
Booted normal, installed generic VGA, windows could'nt complete this step so it was skipped.
Installed 182.08, rebooted, nvidia auto prompted to change resolution to 1280x1024, did that step: garbled blue screen!
Rebooted in normal mode, went to windows built in display properties, bumped resolution from 800x600 to 1280x1024 with out a crash.
Writing this message now, and now I assure you, if I attach my TV or query CUDA, I will crash!
Reinstalling windows did cross my mind, but its a last last resort!
