Possible issue with nVidia 8800 GT cards

Recommended Posts

A report on the Inquirer website says: "It seems that four board partners are seeing G92 and G94 chips going bad in the field at high rates. These chips are used in the 8800GT, 8800GTS, 8800GS, several mobile flavours of 8800, most of the 9800 suffixes, and a few 9600 variants. The G94 is basically only the 9600GT". http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/new...-g94-reportedlyI had heard about the nVidia laptop graphics card issue that has been widely reported, but this is the first time desktop graphics chips have been tarred with the same brush. I've got the 8800GT myself, so this is not welcome news. About the only saving grace is that my card is already a lot slower than the latest models, so it might be a good excuse to upgrade later in the year.Cheers,Noel.

For the last three days I have had a heck of a time with my 9800GTX. Updated to SP3 and shortly after had all kinds of errors cropping up, FS9 CTD's etc.Could not uninstall SP3, could not use System Restore, looked like the OS was going to die on me. No virus found. Had to reformat (4 times) and attempted to install both XP Pro with SP2 and Vista 64 with the 9800 onboard and kept getting blue screen.Finally picked up cheapo 7300 and was able to load Windows. After everything else loaded then changed to the 9800 and it seems to be fine now. Dick
