Default Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

Hi Netllama

This is not a different issue, the old problem still occurs but less frequently, but this new problem also occurs randomly and less frequently, but I am proud to say that i am getting uptimes of 1 to 2 days on my system. But it is always less productive and frustrating to work on a system which might crash at any moment. My productivity has gone down, ever since I had this 7300 GS card...
Please help me in finding the issue and solving it so that I can get an uptime of 1 to two years ;-)

As far as the bugreport is concerned my earlier post contains it and there are no further changes in hardware. So it is a valid report.

Regards
Chaitanya

Thumbs down Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

As I am tried of total freezes, I will change hardware :
  • Is there a nvidia graphic card that will work with this ATI chipset ?
  • Should I change my motherboard ?
  • Should I forgot nvidia graphic cards ?

Hey there, ive an acer aspire 9300 with a geforce go 7300, dunno what motherboard or whatever, point is i have this freeze up problem too. Replacing the laptop isnt an option, so i just have to wait till the next driver update and hope it fixes. Im just wondering if you guys could let me know if this´ll be in months or years or weeks or any minute now?? Plus if someone could let me know how to check which driver i have installed i´d appreciate that
thanks
Paul

verdomde,
I can say with a high degree of confidence that you're not experiencing the same issue that was reported in this thread. I'd strongly urge you to start a new thread, after reading the forum sticky posts.

thanks,
Lonni

I'm certain because you're not using the hardware that everyone else reporting the problem in this thread is using.

Hi Netllama

Why are you so silent when it comes to our issue? U gave immediate response to verdomde... Why are you not responding? Did you try the procedures for reproducing the freeze with the new drivers on your hardware, where you have reproduced the problem earlier? When are you going to give us a fix?
Last time when you released 100.14.11, and said that issue has been fixed, i trusted you and bought a 19" monitor. Now I see nothing but freezes on my shiny new 19" LCD monitor. Please do something...

Regards
Chaitanya

I posted previously in this thread.

I have a nVidia 7300 GS card with a RS480/482 chipset (Just like the title of the thread says)
With the new driver my computer locks up like it did before.. I tried to get some info about the error but not even setting up a netconsole helped.

I replaced my 7300gs with a 8600gt
Now the system is rock solid even with all compiz-fusion plugins activated and a
glxgears running from three days

BTW I have tried, opensuse 10.2, fedora core 6, ubuntu 6.10, gentoo, sabayon 3.26, ubuntu feisty 7.04, hoping that it was a distro specific issue. But I have the same problem everywhere. Initially when I was using ATI onboard GPU, there were a lot of issues, so I thought I can put an end to it, using the trusted nvidia (so called) GPU, but now it is totally unstable and I am loosing alot of time trying to debug this driver bug.
I am ready to provide any kind of log or debug dumps or whatever if it can solve this issue, I hope nvidia guys are reliable and have got some good developers to solve these issues.

PS: right now I am running my desktop with the opensource nv driver, but it is slower when compared to the nvidia binary driver, and crashes during video playback

Thanks ange70 !

Does someone knows where we could find which cards will work with this chipset ?

Angry Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

Hi Netllama/Zander

I have read this entire thread from first once again, to see if I am lost somewhere and discovered that you were suggesting that this might not be a driver bug, in the post where you mentioned that a driver with a workaround is released
Quote:
Just to clarify, the problem was worked around in the latest driver. Its still not clear that this is an nvidia driver bug.
If that is the case, it should freeze in a similar way in windows also, and also with the nv driver, but that's not happening. I think you have stopped responding presuming that it is a hardware bug...
Please test it in your hardware where you reproduced this earlier... and give us a stable driver... You cannot keep ignoring us this way...

Regards
Chaitanya
