After playing Supreme Commander, the only problem seems to be that the game still runs slow with large armies. Still, you should add it as a game that runs fine.

Hehe. An ATi x300? Wow thats performance Do they even make them anymore? One of my friends have one of em' in his notebook.

I cant alt+tab out of it or open the task manager,just press the button.The strange thing is that i can sometimes play vegas for allmost an hour before it happens so i dunno whats up.

I know others have had similar problems and others the games run fine for on similar hardware.My temps are fine ,the card idles at 51 c,around 70c load.Of all the games i play these 2 or the only ones that do this and im just wondering if anyone found a sollution to the problem or if waitng for a new driver is the best way to go?

I tried nhancer but that didnt help. Ive also shut down one of the cores manually in the taskmanager while running the game but again that didnt help either.Can there be another reason for this than the gfx drivers ? My ram is on asus qvl list for my motherboard and the rest of the system should be up to it.Any help / advice would be appricciated

Im running the latest bios for my motherboard,linkboost is off ,spread spectrums aswell and it doesnt matter if i run unlinked or link mode,default or overclocked,it happens anyway.

I installed vista ultimate last night and lo and behold,the games that hardlocked and BSOD on xp for me,far cry,vegas,fear,TDU all worked perfectly and tdu even looked better,dunno why but the hdr seemed to work a hell of a lot better on vista coupled with 4xaa.This is on one hand amazing for me since ive been loosing hair over this since mid december when i got this rig and its finally working,i can play as long as i want without the games freezing up on me and bluescreen/reboots.

And its also sad and shows how much xp needs nvidias attention right now.I find Vista to be somewhat of a pain to work with,its intrusive and interfeers with everything,you have to allow everything it seems before you can start basicly any application.I atleast know that my card,my mobo and my ram works fine,its just the drivers for xp that doesnt at this time so eventually they will and i wont have to rma and use that piece of crap ati x300 during the downtime(cant say i looked forward to that ) Have pity on us nvidia and release something asap please

Default Potential Workaround for Lockup, BSOD issues with 8800GTX

I've read a number of documented incompatibility issues between the 8800GTX/GTS cards, the current (and previous) production and beta drivers and any high quality new DDR2 memory installed in pairs.

The workaround is to remove one of the RAM modules. It's not ideal (I know) but it has resolved most/all (so far) issues with 8800GTX and GTS lockups, crashes and BSOD.

I know what your thinking, "This is stupid". I thought so too until I tried it. It worked on my PC and it has worked on 3 other friends PCs (each with different specs, driver versions and the same problem).

Give it a try. Hopefully in the next driver release, Nvidia can code their way out of this problem.

I'm using 101.41 atm.it also seems i spoke too soon,i had a hardlock under vista late last night while playing TDU Theyre not as frequent but my retailer and BFG support thinks that its because the vista drivers doesnt deliver the same performance yet as the xp drivers do and they suspect the same thing will happen more often when nvidia starts to push the envelope with the vista drivers.

I will rma this card anyway now,my retailer called today and reccomended it and he said that one hard lock under vista was one too many and said in all likelyhood my card is broken .He will exchange it but the model i have is no longer in production and if he cant find one i'll get the oc version instead but at this point i just want the damn thing to work

I have hardlocks on Company of Heroes, don´t know if it´s the game or the drivers, tried without overclock and the same result hardlock after 10-15 min of playing, i´m leaving this game until new drivers.
