Default Re: GeForce 6800 and random freezes

OK... I think I solved my problem... if I did I just have to say it wasn't related in any way to the video card...
I ran a memtest and I got a s**t load of errors,so I ran the test again on eatch of the 512MB plates ... got no errors there (so the RAM has no problems). After that I put both the 512MB GEIL RAM back but in diferent slots (so it is not dual channel anymore...now it runs in singlechannel)
I played for more than 4 hours and no more freezes...

This might not work for everyone but if you didn't try to tets your RAM yet you might whant to download a memtest and run it for a couple of hours.

Get NvTweak Open it. Then click on "Settings" and after that Advance Windows Tweaks. A new window comes up and look at "Optimize system cache size". See it? Well Change the setting from "For server" to "For desktops". Restart and sleep well. (it did work for me No more Freezes!)

Ok, so it seems that the freezing/crashing issue has several fixes, but what about the stuttering/Ghosting ??

Anybody cured that?

Hi,
I just installed Riva Tuner, but I am not a techy type. Could someone direct me on where to find the Fast Write disable option?

Thanks

Can anyone give me one good reason why I shouldnt sell this 6800GT on ebay and buy an ATI X800? I never suffered any problems with my old Radeon.

Just to recap, some of the things I have tried:

AGP Aperture sizes
Fastwrites on/off etc
New 480W PSU
Underclocking (works a bit but somewhat pointless)
Blasting with cold air (even without this, core temp never goes above 73c when busy)

CPU : INTEL PRESCOTT 3GIG 1MB CACHE Core
Motherboard : Asrock p4vm8 Socket 478
Memory : 1024MB DDR400 (PC3200) DDR Memory font
Hard Drive : 120GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive
DVD-RW : 16x DVDRW
Network Card: 10/100 Fast Ethernet Network Controller
O/S : Windows XP Home
Soundblaster PCI Card
SIS integrated 256-bit 3D Graphics Accelerator
GEFORCE 6800GT 256mb AGP Graphics Card
I am ebaying my 6800GT as we speak, nothing but trouble with it since I got it. No more Nvidia for me...

Hi .
Its beena while since I posted here and I see people still have issues with freezes. So I thought I'd write my solution again.
What solved the problem of FREEZES was modding the BIOS to provide 1.4V for 3D mode - as the Ultra. The card been running as Ultra (in 3D mode of course , why else ) without a problem.

GL.

btw, if u got problematic card and try to dump it, than the reduced price is your penalty. Try and fix it. No reason it shouldn't work.
